lady with Chihuahua doing bench presses

This lady was doing bench presses. These are real bench presses on a park bench, and some dog was barking. What a racket! Where did it all that barking come from? It didn’t sound like a big dog, but I couldn’t see it.

Then as I got closer and closer with my own dog, I saw this tiny Chihuahua barking like the world was coming to an end… Often Chihuahua will bark because they are afraid, so why did she bark so much? Could be she was afraid of my dog.

My theory is that she realized that my dog is such a better and nicer dog, so she would need to keep him away or her owner would surely get rid of her for a much nicer dog.

The lady gave me a quick look and kept on doing her bench presses. Then she went on running. She wasn’t running too fast, her Chihuahua was struggling to keep up with her. The Chihuahua must have spent all his energy on the barking earlier.
