Sheltie Nation

OMG, who invited THEM?

One day every baseball season, The Padres @ Petco Park, San Diego has a Dog Day of summer just for our furry friends.  As we took our seats, Lia (our 3 year old) kept looking around and watching other dogs, some even participating in a Doggie Parade; most dogs behaved and sat quietly with their pet-parents.

Lia curiously didn’t like sitting on the grass, where her vantage point was lower, she preferred instead to take a seat, and she couldn’t believe there are so many of her Doggie pals in one place!!  Surrounded by the typical sorts, Labs, Retrievers, Doxies, Cocker Spaniels, Poodles, Mixed Breeds, etc…She acted like she was in Doggie Heaven…Lots of pals everywhere…!!

As the game start fast approached, two dogs were becoming restless and began to bark incessantly and Lia’s reaction was classic.  I watched and took this snapshot showing her horror regarding the commotion; as if to say “What!!!?, What’s the problem? — You know, when your parents take you out, you’re supposed to behave!”

Needless to say — her beautiful face said it all!!

  1. Love the look and love her markings. She is a beauty to say the least.
    Yeah, she is sooooooooooooo well behaved.

  2. Bark in the Park! I love it that so many stadiums are doing it these days! I think Petco, with its lawn seating area, has to be one of the best. Dodger Stadium had TWO of them this year!

  3. Lia is so sweet. A precious babe!!!

  4. What a cute and well mannered little girl, Lia is. How wonderful to be able to take her out in public like that….

  5. I love the look of surprise on Lia,s face..Priceless..and she is sooo cute too! Thanks for sharing with all of us!

  6. she is so beautiful! No wonder she has a right to be indignent. I would be also.

  7. She’s thinking to herself, ‘if they keep that yapping up, they’re going to get us all thrown out of here.’

    What a pretty girl Lia is, and so well behaved!’

  8. If I had been there I would be staring at Lia and not watching the game. She is so beautiful!

  9. She looks like a princess sitting there. I can surely understand how upset she was at the bad behavior happening around her…lol.

  10. That is an ‘indognant’ look for sure! What a cutie, and that sounds like fun having a doggie attended baseball game.

  11. Shelties do have impeccable manners!

  12. What a beautiful girl Lia is!!!! And her manners are impeccable. I’m sure you all had a great time at the game.

  13. Such a beautiful little face with that full blaze. Look at Lia using her good girl manners in public and at the same time, showing how appalled she is at all the others antics! She looks so well behaved and is really doing a pretty sit. She’s just showing all those silly boys how well trained she is, once again making her momma so proud. Agi, I hope Lia got lots of cookies when she got home.
