Korea is not the easiest place for a dog to live. Many stores, malls, and cafes prohibit pets. But, Korea also has many dog cafes and pensions (small resorts/bed and breakfasts). In the summer, my mom and dad often take me to dog pensions to play soccer, swim, and play with other dogs.
Last summer, I went to a dog pension in Gapyeong-gun, Gyeonggi-do. I got to see my old friend, Dalja, the Boston Terrier, and her little sister, Choonja, the French Bulldog. Dalja and I met on vacation in Jeju-do at another dog pension (I’ll post about that trip another day). Choonja has grown so much since I last saw her, and she is now bigger than me.
The day started with a long drive. Of course, I had to dress up to look my best for Dalja and Choonja.
Choonja and I got things started with a game of soccer. Of course, she couldn’t match my skills.
If you didn’t know by now, I love all kinds of balls. I have never seen so many balls in my life. I think I was in heaven:
Then, Choonja and I went for a swim. While it was nice to cool off, neither of us liked it very much. We couldn’t wait to get out of the pool.
On the other hand, Dalja loved the pool. She even learned how to surf.
The pension had a set for taking portraits. We posed for some pictures before we left.
It was a really fun day. I was so tired, I slept the whole way home. I can’t wait until next summer, and I hope I get to see Dalja and Choonja again soon.
