Oh Dear Park, How I've Missed You

This weekend the weather was fantastic! And on Saturday Sandy’s mom called us to see if we wanted to meet at the dog park, in the small section away from the dogs we don’t know. So mom and grandpa took me over there. And a lot of my favorite friends showed up! Mom wished she would have remembered to take pictures, because we had a lot of fun! (The one posted here was from last summer.)

When we first got there, we were there early and Sandy hadn’t gotten there yet. So I was wondering why all the dogs were on the other side of the fence and I was by myself (with mom and grandpa). But soon, Eddie showed up! He’s a little guy who I have fun wrestling with. Then, Gizmo and his mom and dad showed up! And even tho he’s a big golden retriever, he’s a little dog at heart and they brought him in to play with us! Finally Sandy showed up, and we immediately started wrestling around. Our parents could tell we missed each other!. Then, Molly, our cute little puggle friend showed up. And Cooper, another golden. But then, a little tiny Yorkie showed up. And when I say tiny, I mean barely a third of my size! And her owner was obviously nervous to put her down with the big dogs around. So Cooper and Gizmo had to go back to the big side.

Then the lady put the little Yorkie on the ground. Mom was a little nervous for the first time since we had gotten there. She was afraid I’d growl and scare the little gal, since the dogs I’ve been more aggressive towards have been little dogs that I don’t know. She also didn’t know how I’d react if that tiny thing would take off running, as she was smaller than any bunny I’ve seen. But mom should have had more faith in me. I didn’t mind the little pup at all! I sniffed her out and then ignored her to play with Sandy and collapse in exhaustion!

What a fun day! I wish every trip to the park would be that fun and exciting, with nobody hurting me! It was a trade-off though, as mom got a nasty splinter from the bench the humans were sitting on. Mom laughed and said that she has a doggie first aid kit, because of my numerous scrapes, but not a human one! Thanks to Sandy’s mom and dad, though since they had a human one.

YIPPEE....I'm glad you got to go back to the dog park and good job with the little doggie!! :)

Hi, Laney!

Hi Laney
We are glad you had a good day at the dog park.
It sounded like just what everyone needed and you were safe.
Make sure you get your mom to hang that camera round her neck.
What is the point in taking your human to the park if they dont do the photo shoot!!!
Sometimes it is just sooo hard to get the right staff!

Dughallmor Beagles -
Hmm.. Not sure why you can't see the video. It works fine on our computer. Hopefully, it's just a fluke. And we're not sure what you mean by Cboxes?

Mango said...

Silly peoples, its not the size of the dogs, its the vibes of the dogs. Some doggies just give off spooky vibes and so you need to tell them not to get too close.

I am glad you met nice friends for your day at the park.

I enjoyed seeing you at the park. You are good at the "It's my stick" game. I hope we can play again next time you come back.
