Snow’s the anxious types.
She doesn’t go out — not much at all. One fine day, her humans got her out, that too for a dog show. Too many people , too many dogs, too much for Snow.
I watched Snow take it all in. The sounds, humans, the dogs, their antics. She didn’t like it at all.
She struck a few poses, made a face, looked away & then shook her body all over. All in quick succession.
She was telling her humans something but they didn’t get her. I did.
She was telling the humans and other dogs vying for her attention to keep out of her space. She looked away, then shook her whole bodtly, it was her way of releasing the tension and emptying her cup of emotions.
Through the event, Snow stayed by herself. In the end her humans got the message and they took her home. On her way out, Snow wagged her tail. Finally she felt good 🙂
