Abby is a Bitch!

We went on a hike with Faren the other day - Faren is a dog walker so she brings her pack of dogs and Abby and Ryan run with them through the forest. They love it! I barely see them the entire time we're hiking (one time I actually lost Ryan when he ran down a hill and then must have run in the opposite direction looking for us when he came back up the hill...that was bad...I found him shivering by the car almost an hour later). I call them back every so often (except for during the previously mentioned Ryan-losing time when I was distracted and talking and assumed he was running with everyone else) but mostly I just let them race around. It would be quite hard to try and lose Abby and Ryan, actually...they keep a pretty close eye on me (Ryan especially now - he learned his lesson).

There are lots of good smells on the trails

The woods are pretty at this time of year - somehow there are no dogs in this picture!
Wheeeee!Abby and Ryan spot an intruding pointer coming down the trail (we call all the dogs over to us 'cause it's kinda overwhelming for any dog coming down the trail to be swarmed by curious noses)

This is handsome Tag with his stick that he carries with him for the entire hike. He is ever hopeful that Faren might throw it.
Soon after that picture was taken Abby attempted to *steal* Tag's stick. Tag is a full grown Shepherd and is about 3x Abby's size. There was no hope in hell she was going to get that stick.

So what did she do when Tag told her to get away from his stick?

The little bitch took her frustrations out on Amigo.

This sweet sweet Amigo!

Poor Amigo just turned her face to the side as Abby snapped at her (this entire exchange happened before either of us even realized what was happening). Abby didn't actually make contact with Amigo's face but STILL - Amigo did nothing to deserve that!

So she got lots of cookies to take her mind off of the pure evil...
...that was a few meters down the trail being told to "LIE DOWN"
Does she look like she is extremely sorry?

Uh. NO.
She just looks like she's looking for more trouble!

Meanwhile Ryan was taking out his frustration on this log.
Frustration at what? Who knows. Everyone seemed to think it was strange.

Amigo says 'Why me?'
Why, because you're just that sweet Amigo! Abby would only ever choose a sweet non threatening dog to redirect her aggression onto!

Angel says "Good thing she didn't try to mess with me!"
(she did, one time. Abby is a *big* bitch in a little body!)

Amigo's got everyone fooled, she probably bit Abby in the butt right before she snarked and then shows you all her ever so innocent "why me?" face. I'm on to her...don't worry Abby, I got your back!

Bitch or not, I *heart* Abby! She can always come play snarky face with Kate.
