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. Â Recently there was an incident with someone’s dog whereby a horse spooked and startled the rider right off. Â The club management came down on the entire population and said no more dogs on club property. Â 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. Â Polo players <3 dogs.
