    Willow met a new friend today. The dog park was empty so we went in for a little off lead running. A standard poodle with his owner showed up and the lady and I had a conversation about whether Cooper, her dog, could come in and join us. After a cautious introduction, we let them play together. Here are a couple of clips of them.

    Wow talk about running (big) circles around someone! Looks like both dogs had fun, what a nice encounter.

    Willow looks like she is having a great time! There is something so beautiful about shelties in slow motion - all that fur! You have a beautiful dog park! The one in my area is mostly a mud hole.

    He was an awfully nice poodle, I'd hate to embarrass him. :) Maybe he was tired, Willow had to work to get him to run with her.

    Not many dogs play sheltie games...I found a mini aussie at a dog park that played with Fillion perfectly, but our neighbor's standard poodle looked at Fil like he was whack!
    That's why Willow needs a bro/sis ;)

    Willow had a blast! So nice to see them run like that.
    I must say I love your titles, would make a good mystery novel title lol.

    No, unfortunately, this is also my experience
    - Minnie had a medium poodle a few years ago that would run fast after her, so it was a party.

    Now we have a neighbor with a Coton de Tuléar (cotton dog) on 1 year,
    Minnie really wants to play with her
    but she bites all the time in the forelegs and jumps into Minnie's head

    And it's not fun for Minnie and just irritate her - so she stops
    Minnie never fight :no:

    Then it goes better with a male Scottish terrier
    he runs after Minnie, she thinks he is playing :wink2:
    but he just runs after her too to sniff to her buttocks :lol:
    So playmates are almost non-existent :gaah
