I'm brave brave

Mummy took me me and Sunshade to Pacific Spirit Park again. Me me is brave brave like my Sunshade. Me see see Sunshade and learn learn what Sunshade do do.

See see me me not afraid of this mean mean dog!




(mum: I took this video after I was sure this dog wasn't gonna do anything more than a few snarls to Sunshade and Jaffa. This was a very fearful dog that should have been kept on leash. He had bitten the owner of a Lab who was ahead of us. I think the owner was trying to protect her Lab and the dog missed the Lab, go the owner. The owners were exchanging phone numbers ahead, I believe, and this dog was allowed to keep roaming off leash. He stormed straight for us with all teeth bared, his tail between his legs, scruff hair raised.

Sunshade, immediately got in between the dog and us (Jaffa and me). She didn't snarl or do anything, she stood tall, and just "looked" at the dog. Whenever the dog tried to move, Sunshade blocked him and gave him that powerful "Sunshade LOOK". The dog some how got the message not to mess with this Airedale, and circled around us.

He did come back around from behind and snarled at Jaffa and that's when I took the video. You could see Sunshade kept an eye on Jaffa and this dog, but didn't do anything in the beginning. However, when she felt the dog was being to snarly towards Jaffa, she put herself between the dog and Jaffa and basically reminded the dog "she" (one who can't be touched) was still there.

Jaffa seems to have mature into a calm, confident boy, much like his aunt Sunshade. So many of his reactions, things he does are mirror images of what Sunshade does.)
