Barkin' in the Dog Park

So I was sitting in the sun in the backyard. . . Both of my mommys were gone and my Auntie T was puttering around the house. It's nice in the backyard. I'm NOT complaining.

When I heard the door open, I knew they were home at LAST and I ran to the screen door and BEGGED to be let in. I had missed them so much - even the nice warm sun cannot make up for the absence of my mommys. It had been 4 hours, after all.

They were all excited to see me too and tell me they had TWO surprises for me. The first surprise was a Bully Stick. I loves loves loves me some Bully Stick. I don't get them too often, though, because they GROSS out the VEGHEADS I live with. The second surprise was the BEST - they were taking me to a dog park they had just heard about. Jennifer, the nice human who owns Biscuits Give A Dog A Bone, told them that the soccer park at the end of the main street through Japantown (where Biscuits is located) had been remodeled and a dog park just opened there a month ago!

A DOG PARK so close to my house! Did the SUN transport me to HEAVEN?

So we harnessed and leashed me and headed out to check out the DP. Look at all the GRASS at the DOG PARK! And it was soft and green! There were a lot of dogs there but honestly, I prefer to stay close to my Mommy. See, that is her purple she in the photo.

My Mommys tried to get me to interact with the dogs there. I tried. I greeted each and every one of their HUMANS! Frankly, I don't totally buy into that theory that PUGS are DOGS. I relate better to HUMANS.
I tried and every time I approached another dog my Mommy would take a picture.

Here are some of the dogs I met.
The official Greeter at the DP, Tank. He is 8 years old.

Scout- Like the SMALLEST Yorkie I have ever seen

This poodle BARKED his fool head off!   

What an assortment of dogs there were!

It was like the BEST day ever and I cannot WAIT to go back. Both of my Mommys said we will go a lot because the DP is so close to home and so nice.

Hi Noodles! I'm with Sid about that pic of you and Tank. I bet he can teach you all about the good spots at the park. I'm so glad you had a great time and thanks for showing it to us. I'm envious of the sun you enjoyed!

Noodles!! Your dog park is WAY nicer than ours here! Ours is all pine straw and low fences that the dogs can jump and trees everywhere dropping things down on you. And mud...oh the mud!! Yucko.

Looks like you had a ton of fun on your outing (who cares if you just visited the humans, it was still fun!) and we hope you enjoyed your Bully Stick! Riley LOVES them!

Noodles that is totally cool! Looks like lots of fun even with the barking poodle. I also greet the humans and not the dogs. Mum says it must be a pug thing!
