Everytime Hershey goes to the dog park, she'd just look bored and hang around the benches where the humans park themselves, even if there are other doggies around to play with her... If the other doggies come over and sniff her, she'd just give the cursory bum sniff/ tail wag and go back to looking bored.
Poor dad would usually have to spend some time doing some crazy stuff or make some silly noises to make her interested enough to run/ play. Mom finds this so strange because at home, she is a bundle of energy and full of inquisitivity, and they take her to the park to burn off some of those excess energy.

These photos were taken during Hershey's last visit to the park a few days back.. they were fairly early so there were no other humans/ doggies there when they arrived. As you can tell from the photos below, poor dad was trying pretty hard to make Hershey run/ chase after him and after a few tries, he finally succeed. LOL!! Well at least dad got to exercise a bit...

Hi, Huskee and Hershey -

Wow, Hershey, you have really gotten big. We hope you enjoyed going to the park with your Dad.

It is raining here AGAIN. It's been raining on and off all week.

Mama hopes it doesn't rain this weekend so she can go to the park again.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Hi, Huskee.

Hahah...Hershey is the opposite of me! I'm all sluggish and sleep a lot at home but when I'm out....I'm full of energy!

Molly the Airedale said...

At least you're smiling, Hershey! We're sure your dad didn't mind entertaining you!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Huskee Boy!

First off, I have to tell you that the last sleeping photo of you on the post before this was stinkin' cute. My girl about died to see you sweet face like that!

Hershey seems to think SHE'S taking your dad to the park to get HIM some excercise, not the other way around. I guess she has him trained, huh?

By the way, very COOL stuff from the Brothers Stains! They sure know how to send a pressie!

Tell your mama we're glad she's our buddy on Facebook now.

Goobe love,

Well I try to get master to run after cats but he never seems to want to play.

Nice piccies.


Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Yeah Dad, excellent job of burning off Hershey's energy and..yours!
Tsk! Tsk! With her sharp set of teethies, Hershey could chew the whole park, let alone your mom's curtain!

Oh, Asta has the best comment - how true. Maybe Hershey is waiting for one of her own breed to come along.

Woos, the OP Pack

Simba and Jazzi said...

You certainly make sure the humans get lots of exercise.

I think Hershey just lkikes making your dad look goofy. hehe
Have a fun weekend!

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Hershey just like being along with the family. He doesn't have to socialize if he doesn't want to.

Lorenza said...

Hershey finds more interesting things to do inside your house!
Glad your Dad gets his bit of excercise!
Kisses and hugs

Hmmmm Hershey sounds a little like Lucy. Lucy has energy to burn but if we take her to a park with lots of other dogs Lucy stays by B nearly the whole time and wont play. She is actually scared to be off lead around other dogs. On lead and she's crazy. We're funny creatures aren't we!!


Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

hehe...Hershey did look content after her run with her dad.

We are not that interested in playing with dogs at the park. We like to say hello but really it is all about chasing the tennis ball for us.

Have a great weekend.

Holly & Zac...XX

Rambo said...

I think maybe she is just shy. My sister Midget is shy too. She doesn't like to socialize with other dogs.
I on the other hand want to bite every dog I see. he he

Abby said...

Hi, Huskee & Hershey...

I just think Hershey is running around at home so much she is tired by the time you get to the park...

Abby xxxooo

Hi H & H,

I'm shy too with strange dogs too and peoples but once I know you I'm all over you.I'd rather stick to Mommuy. I bet your Daddy doesn't mind playing with Hershey.

Mommy smiled a lot looking at Hershey's pic but where is Huskee in them pictures?
