If I had been on a children's playground, some people might have been suspicious of me. I came alone. Without any dogs of my own. And I just stared at all the dogs playing. Sometimes I even got my camera out and took a few pictures of some of the ones I thought were especially cute.
Then I started thinking about what kind of dogs we might want next.
One day, while I was on a run near the park, I saw the most beautiful Australian Shepherd. I had already started really honing in on that breed after several weeks of visiting the park. On that lucky day, I went inside the park and found that dog's owner. She told me all about her 11 month old dog, Jasper, while he sat at her feet. She also told me a lot about how she raised him, which explains why he's growing up to be such a great dog.

All of my days of creeping paid off!
