A monster high tide covers the beach on which Aki usually charges after her Frisbee. We stay in the bordering old growth forest where she runs into a couple of dog friends. At first they are all fun and excitement. Then one of the dogs, a springer spaniel, grabs the Frisbee and a fight breaks out. This is a side of Aki we never see and it shocks me and the little dog’s other human. After the snarling fight ends the dogs act like nothing happened. It is harder for her people to shrug off. She is such a sweet little dog.
