ZenZen and many other good friends.

Today I got to go to an awesome place called the SPCA.
There were many dogs there and many interesting smells. There was also a nice, enclosed play area where I got to romp around in an off-leash format.
This play area had many balls, frisbees, ropes and interesting objects strewn about, so I had lots of fun.
It wasn’t long before I saw this really hairy dog called Zen.
His face had some similarities with a Shiba, which means that he is quite handsome; although not as handsome as me.
True to his name, Zen was very calm, so it was a challenge to get him to play. In fact, for some incomprehensible reason, Zen just wanted to be with the 2-legged ones.
Everybody knows that 4 legs are superior to 2 legs! And a Shiba Inu is the most superior of all.
Anyway, I was not about to give up, so I did my best to get Zen to relax and acknowledge my Shiba-awesomeness. I jumped up on him, I ran around, I play-bowed, I did my air-butt move, I humped him on the side, back, and front. Ultimately, Zen realized what a cool dude I am and started romping around with me!
Den Female says that I was a pest and Zen played with me a little in the hopes that I would leave him alone; but I know better.
Everybody realizes that I am totally AWESOME … eventually.
I just need to apply my legendary Shiba persistence and everything always works out in the end.
If at first you don’t succeed, try and try again!

Dog play will help keep a dog busy, and channel his energy into fun and constructive activities. Playing with your dog will also help with obedience training, enhance your dog relationship, and establish you as the pack leader. Here are some games my dogs like to play.
Dog-to-dog socialization has become such a popular buzz word that it is currently accepted as a necessity for dogs. Here, we take a step back and consider dog socialization, what is means, and whether dogs truly need to socialize with other dogs.
