When I first wanted to adopt a dog, I had this idea we would spend a lot of time hanging out together in the (human) park.I would bring a blanket. We would sit together as I read a book.
I would even use her as a pillow.
Though we all know how different the life we envision with our dogs can be.
Because out of all of the strange things I've discovered about Miss M, she absolutely hates sitting in parks. And she seems to really hate lawns.
Like that time we went to listen to a concert in the park and she got so frustrated she started trying to grab her own leash and simultaneously eat my picnic blanket.
So I had to tackle her.
And I was laying on top of my kicking dog just as a new co-worker was walking by (and recognized me).
Or maybe how every time we tried to sit in the park for an extended amount of time it ended this way.
At which point, she tries to eat it.
Note the lawn coming out of Miss M's mouth ala Huck FinnNow that we have our own lawn, Miss M has gone beyond just grazing and she is actually biting chunks out of the lawn and eating dirt.
Are there other dogs out there who hate the lawn? Or is this just another case of Miss M being Miss M?
So it's not just this?
