A few months ago we decided that it was time to take marou to his first big social event. The event was called "Bark In The Park", and it was hosted at our local recreational park by a few vendors and charities. There were kiddie pools to keep the dogs cool.
Marou was extremely excited to see all of the other dogs and people. So much so that he relieved himself in the middle of the path. It took him a while, but he got accustomed to all of the action and had a blast meeting other dogs and people.
We also signed a petition to hopefully get a dog park in the area.
