Ever think your dog knows that there's something off about another person/animal?
For the most part, Lulu is friendly with everyone and every doggy. But sometimes her guard goes up against certain dogs.
There are two dogs in particular that gets Lulu's hackles raised. One of them is a big black dog, the other is a small, tan dog that looks like a westie. She starts barking loudly and running around.
So today I finally asked the lady with the small dog if Lulu could sniff her dog. I got the idea from the trips to the dog parks. Lulu always has to sniff every new dog that comes in.
But this was a completely different experience. For one thing, even with the ability to sniff the other dog, Lulu never got very close. She didn't try to walk around the dog, or did a lot of sniffing. For another, the other dog snapped at her.
The lady said it wasn't my dog she was worried about, but hers.
I tried to look up the concept online, but there wasn't really anything. Or maybe I'm searching for the wrong thing.
I know people read my blog, but I don't know if I have any regular followers outside of friends and family. But what do you think? Do dogs have doggy vibes? Do they sense danger, or at least potentially dangerous dogs?
Meanwhile, we have some events in Orlando this weekend if you're looking for something to do with your doggy:
April 14: The Spring Splash and Shout at Happy Paws Pet Resort Orlando off East Colonial Drive. The event starts at 10 a.m.
April 15: The Doggy Art Festival in Winter Park on Park Avenue. The event starts at 10 a.m.
I've added a new Facebook page for Lulu. If you're on Facebook, just look up Lulu the Beagle, then "like" the page.
I've also opened a Twitter account. If you're on Twitter, follow us at "lifewithbeagle" for all things doggy.
