Today I met up with mummy’s friend K and her dog Toby. He’s a chew toy Chihuahua. Mummy wasn’t sure how it would go and said I had to be on my bestest behaviour. Mostly because Toby doesn’t socialise with other dogs much and also because he barks ALOT. And as I rarely bark, sometimes I get freaked out by vocal dogs.

can you guess which one is me bol

But overall it went well, we didn’t actual wrestle, although I would’ve liked to, but I did show him round my park and introduced him to a few friends.

me, K and Toby

Afterwards they came back to ours for a bit. Mummy said I was good for not making a fuss about letting him in. He growled at me a few times but mummy said not to take it personally, he was obviously a bit nervous.  And I didn’t mistake him for a toy, so all went well:-)

Although it was fun, I’m meeting up with my friend Lady tomorrow for a proper romp about:-)

  2. He is so cute but yes you need someone your own size for a lark and a play. Enjoy the sun today Misaki. Have a super Saturday.
    Best wishes Molly

    Aww. You did so well sweetie. I hope you enjoy your rump.

  4. He looks like a mini-you in the first picture. I like small dogs, but I’m always careful when I breathe and I’m afraid I could swallow one of them :o)

  5. kolytyi says:

    What a conflict! Should you be unable to believe your eyes or your ears? Are you sure that it wasn’t a plush toy with built-in barking mechanism?

  6. Kyla says:

    You need to learn Spanish so Toby can understand you when you bark.

  7. Poppy Seed says:

    Your smile is always priceless, Misaki. It looks like you enjoyed yourself in spite of having to be on good behavior! 😀

    I tend to be a bit bossy and rough with the smaller dog but my big sis who is really big is so gentle with little dogs, they all love her. I see them as being more like cats and we all know I enjoy jumping on and wrestling with my cats. Those small dogs often have a Napolean complex when they visit us but I quickly let them know who the big dog really is 🙂 Glad you had fun and did not turn your pal into a squeaky toy!

    • Misaki says:

      You’re so right about the napoleon complex! I think that’s Toby’s problem too. But after a few little barks he gave up. I think he was worried that I’d squish him BOL

  9. Nikitaland says:

    Aw, aren’t play dates wonderful?!

  10. You are an inspiration, M. Usually, when I see a dog smaller than me, I jump on his head. You were so good and well-behaved.

    Love and licks,

  11. Misaki you did SO well – I’m proud of you and I know your Mummy was too – that little guy does look like a chew toy (tee hee)! I love the photo of you, K and the chew toy – you’ve got a BIG smile on your face!

    Happy Saturday! Sammy

  12. Love this! It reminds me a bit of a picture I saw on Facebook recently with a Dalmatian and a Dachshund with the caption: One of my spots fell off! Great post!

  13. Good for you, Misaki. Mom says that Ciara would be fine with your little friend, Lightning might play a bit too rough but not in a mean way, and Phantom and Thunder would definitely be left at home – they don’t do well with little yappers:)

    Happy weekend.

    Woos – Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

  14. speedyrabbit says:

    well done Misaki,I’m sure the next time you guys meet up it will be more playful maybe not wrestling but playing,xx Speedy

  15. Lol you look so pleased with yourself 🙂

  16. High paw friend! I’ve nominated you for a WordPress Family Award. Thank you for all you do to bring joy to the lives of others.

  17. Gizmo says:

    Aren’t playdates the best? It’s always fun to make new pals and you were very nice to show Toby around and give him some space to get to know you…Have a wonderful weekend ❤

  18. catchatcaren says:

    Misaki I would love to play with you and don’t worry….I only bark in the privacy of my home. Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  19. Bawahhawaaa you very own real life chew toy, hope you took the squeaker out..BOL Mail you tomorrows 🙂 xx00xx

    Mollie and Alfie

  20. You would of squashed him if you played to rough BOL


  21. CATachresis says:

    Misaki, you made mum laugh at “chew toy”. Glad you refrained from doing that!! mol

  22. What’s with humans being nervous about us meeting small friends? Mrs. Master is like that too.


  23. Looks like you guys had fun. Have a great day. Lee and Phod

  24. Zena says:

    Yeah – looks like a chew toy to me too!!
    His behaviour sounds like Prissy paws – growls at us (even in our own home) when we go to be polite and sniff him.
    We end up just ignoring him and he misses out on the fun. Shame really, but there you are. He hasn’t improved in the five years I’ve known him 😦 And I haven’t chewed, chased or so much as accidentally tripped him once!

    • Misaki says:

      Yes that’s exactly like Toby. i feel kinda sorry for him as I don’t think he has any friends so doesn’t know how to play properly

  25. spittythekitty says:

    You’re SUCH a good girl, Misaki. And, heck, he was hardly a mouthful anyway, MOL!

  26. barkandchatter says:

    I’m a little dog myself, but dogs that small make me nervous!

  27. Chancy and Mumsy says:

    Next to you sweet Misaki Toby looks like a toy. Looks like the two of you got along well though. We are glad you didn’t chew on him. lol Hugs and nose kisses

  28. Dogs N Pawz says:

    You are so nice Misaki! We chase little dogs so we have to say… you are a much better dog than us!

  29. Ann Staub says:

    Aww – your friend is very cute Misaki!
