Taffy's owner Ron bravely seized the akita which turned out to be rather less fearsome than it looked.
In fact it was very friendly.
The akita's owner reportedly had left it in the park earlier and had already been called to get it once.
When it refused to go with him he left it a second time.When the rangers took control of it,they borrowed Dylan's lead.
It did not want to go anywhere with them either.
It took them quite some time to take it away to the dog warden.
Who knows what happened to the akita after that.With the drama over,the dogs cooled off in the lake. Sally and Lilly like to paddle but don't swim much. Jake and Diesel have their own way to dry off after a swim. Dylan and Jake left Diesel a ball to play with. Diesel doesn't usually like balls. But he does like balls which squeak. He spent a long time playing with this one. He just kept squeaking it. When he wasn't fetching it. Diesel uses his paws almost like hands. On the way home Diesel practiced his squirrel chasing.
Fortunately he never catches them.
Unfortunately he lost the sqeaky ball whilst chasing this one.
