Catahoula Leopard Pooch

I took the girls to the dog park on Sunday.  It was so gorgeous and I thought they could use some playtime with some pup friends.  In my head it always seems like this is a great idea and they will be so thrilled to have puppy playtime.  When we turn on to what we affectionately call “D-O-G Park Road” the girls know exactly where we are and much excitement ensues in the backseat.  Roooos can been heard from miles away, I’m sure. 

Once we walk in to the actual park and the initial sniffs are over the experience can got one of two ways.

A.  Both dogs tear off and frolic with much delight.
B.  Alex lays in the sun and growls at any dog that walks by her and Mabel sticks to me or Wade and is a nervous nelly.

One never knows until we get there.

Sunday it was B. 

That was until our new friend Nori arrived.  What a fascinating little pup Miss Nori is!  I have never seen a dog like this.  She is a Catahoula Leopard Dog mix.  Being a rescued dog, her mom is unsure what she is mixed with.  She has another Catahoula mixed with a Black Lab who is also quite unique. 

Three-month old Nori was more nervous than Mabel and they bonded over their mutual anxieties.  They were soon playing together and enjoying the spring sunshine, too!  Alex just sat back and watched…  she’s way too cool to play with the little ones.
