Ronin - he's a Manchester Terrier Toy.
A recent transplant from DC, my dog and I are looking to do some adventuring with other dog lovers. I'm trying to get a social network of friends for my dog...and for me.
This is a great group to be in for any small dog owners. I go to this dog park daily and I've been pushing the 11 am hour to all sorts of people with young pups to older dogs who just need to be around other dogs. I've seen up to 23 dogs at one time. It would seem to be cacophonous with so many dogs in one spot and with their owners but it's actually quite fun. The humans socialize. The dogs do or don't and can find their own space even with so many other dogs. Dogs tend to gravitate towards those that are like themselves. I've seen other non-social dogs sniff happily amidst puppies wrestling and teens chasing each other. Owners are often very aware of their dog's whereabouts. Good group of people. Come meet members but just as importantly those who aren't.
