Now THIS is a big dog...

Thursday, June 28, 2007

At the park the other day I was playing...minding my own business. Chasing my Puggle friend Marley. All of a sudden out from the trees we see this...

Do you see that giant dog! He was HUGE...and there was this lady sitting on top of him! He was even too big to go into the big dog section of the was wild!!! And just a little scawie!

I know the Dachsies have seen Cowdogs and Baby Cowdogs. But what is this thing? It looked like I could have been a mid-morning snackie for this guy!

Note from Michele, Ruby's Mom:
There are a couple of horses that live behind the dog park. You can never see them, but you can definitely hear them and Ruby always goes to the back of the park to see what it is. This was the first time I've seen any of the horses being ridden. It really was the funniest thing...there were about 15 dogs in the small dog section of the park at the time and they all lined up at the fence barking and howling! The horse didn't was really amazing.

Hi Ruby Bleu,

To answer your question about a happy ending -- keep your paws crossed and stay in touch!!

Wow, Ruby! That is the biggest dog I have ever seen, too! I wonder if the dog likes to be ridden like that?

Your puggle friend looks cute, does he snort like me? Hee-hee :)

Puggy kisses

I don't think doggies let people ride them. I've seen donkeys before it looks a bit like one of them.

Well, no, Ruby. It wasn't quite a huge poodle. It was Toto, our 4-pound toy poodle neighbor. I'm just sick of him walking by our window like he owns the place. He needs to be taught a lesson, with all that prancing around that he does.

And I've seen those kind of huge dogs around our place too. They're pretty scary, to tell you the truth. Their poo is about the size of our heads! And our square heads are pretty big...!

Wow, we would love to play with that big guy!

We have lots of those opposite my house so we have made friends. There are some fine donkeys too and they are my friends as well.

Big doesn't mean scary.

Lorenza said... 12:58 PM

Hi, Ruby.
Are those horsedogs?? I've seen some of them and I bark at them but if they turn their heads toward me, I ran away!!
I just can imagine all those doggies barking at that horsedog!
Have a nice day

Are you all triggering a war with the horse? Woooo!


wally said... 2:25 AM


Good job with the protection there! We have those dogs at our park, too. I don't mind them except once my ma ape went to pet one and I let the Big Dog know in no uncertain terms, petting is reserved for ME


Amber-Mae said... 3:36 AM

Yeah, I've seen one HUGE dog before when I went on a trip with my mommy for a doggie event. He was really big, friendly & bootifully white! Oh wait, it's a she I think... I meat two huge doggies there. The other one is a miniature one with a lot of hair on its head & legs. I wonder which country it came from? Coz I know it comes from a cold country & it's used to pull carts...

Love licks,

Wooo, Ruby! We sometimes see those dogs at our park, too! They're called "horsies" and they ARE HUGE!

Miss Reina said... 11:31 AM

Hi Ruby,
Whatever that thing is, it sure is GIGANTIC!
And what beautiful tail. I think it can be used as my brush!

We calls them monster dogs. We throws a puggy fit when ever we sees them. Grrrrrr.

Cool! I've seen plenty of horses. I'm totally cool with them in the country, but if I see one in the city, it's game over baby.

Peanut said... 2:04 PM

That thing is even bigger then nanook. Hmm I dont' think I've ever seen a horse. Mom says they have some down the road from us and she might have to walk me down there to check them out.

Stanley said... 6:01 PM

Ruby Girl!

It sounds like Oscar is the most experienced with such creatures! It even sounds like he's partaken of some of the benefits such large horsey dogs leave behind.

Be careful. Walk talk & carry a big BARK!

Goob love,
