Buddy, Marisa’s rescue dachshund (when spelling, remember it is ch and then sh) is the life of the polo play preparations and after parties. Everybody knows Buddy and Buddy knows everybody. Recently there was an incident with someone’s dog whereby a horse spooked and startled the rider right off. The club management came down on the entire population and said no more dogs on club property. This immediately set off a protest by the members, and dogs are back on, with a little more restraint. See my post “Dog Party” in the archives May 8, 2010. Polo players <3 dogs.
