Sometimes She’s a Cutie

Corona Can Be Such a Sweetie

Corona Can Be Such a Sweetie

I have to admit that this Dogo Argentino and I have our disagreements but it’s pictures like these that remind me how annoying she doesn’t have to be. Given the right activities to release her ever escaping energy Corona can be one calm and sookie dog.

Can’t wait for her ears to heal, a field to dry and the sun to shine to see her run again. Until then I’ll just keep taking deep breaths.

Frisbee Fun with Corona

Corona loves to go after pieces of wood and will do so until she’s blue from cold if we let her. Balls just don’t hold her attention nearly as much so when we took our frisbee to the beach we didn’t know what to expect.

Chalking her disinterest up to being her first time at the beach in a year we kept up the encouraging words until the rain made us stop. After a few more visits and practice runs we’re sure Corona will love playing frisbee almost as much as she loves fetching a stick.

It Just Looks Like She’s Lost

Corona alludes to the idea that she’d love to go exploring in the deep, dark woods but this Dogo Argentino hasn’t been brought up brave. Living in the city she doesn’t get much chance to see and explore a forest but the smells were enough to tempt her.

Always on a leash this weekend, Corona just didn’t know what to do with herself and had us know it. Trying to keep her entertained and comfortable was enough to have us need another vacation but this would be it for a while.

Now home in the scariness of her bed Corona is much more relaxed.

Corona’s Not Much Of A Camping Dog

We thought we’d enjoy a nice weekend outdoors where our Dogo Argentino could run and play while we enjoyed a night under the stars and a campfire or two. Well, we didn’t see much of the stars as our tents cover wasn’t something we wanted to try to take off and Corona decided she would rather be in a hotel room or cottage than a tent.

This Dogo enjoyed meeting our new neighbours but wasn’t much for sleeping during our couple nights away. We bought a super sized tent to give her room not realizing how much room she’d take pacing and staring us down till we awoke.

Now sound asleep on her comfortable bed in our house Corona wouldn’t even consider eating a bone while on vacation (save for the bones she wasn’t supposed to have). Not sure when we’ll get the chance to go camping again but I’m sure Corona will become accustomed to it just as quickly as we will to setting up the tent.

Corona Gets a Stick

Corona Gets a Stick

Corona loves to swim, especially if she has a stick to retrieve and it doesn’t matter the size. As long as this Dogo Argentino can see it she’ll get it again and again and again.

Dogo Argentino’s are certainly known for their great amount of endurance and perseverance and Corona is no exception. We usually tire of throwing it before we see her slow down. But with balls Corona just doesn’t care unless there’s another dog who wants it.

Although the water makes her stink it sure does slow her pacing at home!
