Default Dog owners that make me happy

Well, today I was at the park and for the first time in a WHILE I saw this guy REALLY PLAYING with his dog.

I don't mean sitting on a bench throwing a ball, or watching their dog play..

I mean full on running, split faced grin, laughing, baby voicing, PLAY. He had a boxer who was running full tilt with an empty water bottle in his mouth and he was chasing him and both owner and dog were COVERED IN MUD LOL and it just really made me smile.
In fact, a few dog owners got up and started playing with their dogs.

Sometimes I feel like I get way too caught up in what people are feeding, training, doing, vaccinating etc.. and forget what makes someone a GOOD dog owners in my eyes really.
and I think I saw it today lol

Just wanted to share because it made me grin

Love it. That's what dogs and humans should be all about...the most important thing in my eyes too.

That is great to see and refreshing! A few weeks ago in the park where we did Zumba class I saw this guy playing fetch with his dog, and they were both SO happy.. it was so sweet.

I feel that way about all living beings. You are supposed to enjoy the company you share. Have a laugh. Have fun! I love my dog. I love playing with him. It makes me so happy to watch him frolic and play and i quite often can't contain myself and have to join in too.

That's what happens when you have a boxer

I loooove seeing people that seem to genuinely ENJOY their dogs.
