we took sumya to her first boxer meetup today. unfortunately it did not go so well. we were so excited for her to finally be able to play with other boxers.there are not any in my neighborhood at all.there are mostly small dogs whose owners are scared to death of sumya, or older dogs who cannot handle the way sumya plays. ( she can be a little wild ). when we got to the meet we were quite dismayed to find that it was outdoors, it was freezing and drizzly today. and also the dog park was very dirty.while i consider myself to be quite friendly, i have to say that the other owners were very unfriendly. i introduced myself and no one really said anything.they did however manage to let me know that sumya looked "strange" and "very odd" .(all of the other boxers that were present were black mask fawn). i ignored the comments and let her off leash to play. there were some balls that the other owners brought and the dogs were all playing with them, so i thought it was o.k. that sumya played with them too. apparently not, she had one in her mouth and someone went up to her and took it out of her mouth then threw it to the other dogs.so i took out her wubba( we can't go anywhwre with out that thing! ) the other dogs saw her playing with it and took it away and it was destroyed in 3 sec flat.no aplogies from the owners.needless to say i will not be attending next month. i got a general e- mail from meetups.com asking me to rate and cooment on my first meetup.should i tell them what i thought or just ignore it?sorry that was kind of long, i just wanted to get that off my chest, whew!
