Sunny late afternoon at Sam Smith Park

It’s the second year in a row that i have Martin Luther King Jr’s day off. The past few days had been unusually sunny in Seattle. I wanted to take Mango to a fenced-off park so that he could expend his excess energy. Trust me, he’s got tons of excess energy. Mango did not have a good experience previously at the Westcrest Park so i decided to take him to the off-leash fenced-off enclosure at Sam Smith Park. I walked all over the park, carefully avoiding dog poos which littered all over the grassy areas while trying to figure out where the fenced-off area was. I eventually found it after asking another dog owner. The fenced-off park was actually located west of Martin Luther King Jr Way South. The sun was already setting by the time i found the park so Mango did not get the chance to go crazy.

yep, my dog on the left is the one from leslie. the one on the right is from a different breeder. i think leslie’s dogs all share those cute little eyes.

p.s. my shibas does the EXACTLY same “stalking” position! when my boy shiba needs to pee really bad, he’d pee like a girl too. on the other hand, my girl shiba would sometimes lift her leg to pee…

So mei mei would lieft her leg to pee…that’s so funny! So far, Mango has not acquired the habit of marking his territories by peeing a little here and there. When he pees, he releases all at the same time at the same spot. When he’s not in a hurry to pee though, he really takes his own sweet time to find the “perfect” spot. It’s funny to see him go back and forth multiple times (once i counted at least 14 times) until he is satisfied with a particular spot.
