No need to be rude

Mum took me to Point Roberts, WA today to pick up a few parcels from the mail box. We stopped by Light House Marine Park afterwards to go for a walk. Everything was going great until we met a group of three dogs walking together. Two of them kept charging and barking at me and mum.

See, the black and white one was running beside me and barking in my ear the whole time. Thank goodness I don't hear out of that ear! (mum: she's close to 100% deaf in her left ear... That's the ear with the ruptured eardrum from the bike tire explosion....)

I'm a confident gurrrrrl, and since the dogs didn't make any physical contact, I didn't feel the need to be rude back. I just stood my ground, kept my head and tail up high to let them know that I wasn't going to tolerate anything more than charging and barking.

However, when one of them decided to go past me to charge at mum, I quickly snarled my way in between, separating the rude doggie from mum. I gave him a SuperEVIL look that said "I dare you to try that again with MY mum!".  I needed to take charge since his owners did nothing to try to stop his behaviour. He was smart enough to walk awaaaaay.

The brown and white one kept straying away from his pack just to ambush and charge at us. So I kept having to run ahead to keep him away from MY mum!!

Finally, they left the park and I was able to enjoy one of my favouritest games without having to be on a look out for the rude dog!! 

This is the game of Pine Cone Down the Slide!!

We picked up my supplements from the mail box,

(mum: Point Roberts, WA is about a 40 minute drive from Vancouver, BC. We get a lot of things shipped there to save on shipping. 80% of the time we end up not having to pay taxes/duties at the border because Sunshade bats her eyelashes at the officers :-) )

And a big Serta memory foam mattress! The mattress was so big it barely fit in the DaleMOBILE!!

It was comfy to eat a bully stick on,
