Lucky's first visit to a dog park

Lucky had his first visit to a dog park yesterday.

Anthony and I met up with my friend Jason at Reid Park in midtown Tucson at about 2 p.m.  Jason brought his dog Summer and we brought Lucky.

I had been hesitant to take him to a dog park because I was unsure how he would do.  I was concerned he's bolt once off the leash or he'd have trouble interacting with other dogs.  He's a unique animal and it's taken a long time to get him to bond to us and function well in a variety of situations.

It turned out that my concerns weren't really justified.  He stuck pretty close to us the whole time and ran around and played well with the other dogs.  One dog attempted multiple times to hump him and Lucky snarled at him but it didn't go any further than that.  (The humping was unsuccessful by the way).

I shot some video of the occasion.  (Get the direct link of the video on YouTube by clicking here).
