Ima Swinger and Proud of it

getting my SWING on


We have been going to the new dog park quite frequently now that we know it is so close to our house. Whenever Mommy #2 has some free time, she packs me up and off we go to the DP. I am getting a little better about at least greeting other dogs. I have always been very social with dog 'rents, of course.

The last time we went to the DP was with Cousin C. She is the youngest of the humans in the house at 6 yrs. She loves loves loves me and I am pretty fond of her too. I stop short of L-O-V-E because I reserve THAT for my two Mommys.

Cousin C was so excited to take me to the DP. I think she was jumping more than me. When we got there, she hopped out of the car so fast she SCARED me! It was okay, though, as there were no other cars and very few people. The DP, small dog side was almost empty! Yep, almost empty. I think there were maybe 4 other dogs and 2 of those were MICROSCOPIC dogs!!! One was an 8 month old Chihuahua and the other an 11 month old mini Schnauzer that was SMALLER than the 8 month old Chi! So I ran like the wind a little with Cousin C and then I walked around and  visited the other dogs. I am not intimidated by small puppies so I even initiated a couple of butt-smelling Hellos.

I am not sure how long we stayed at the DP - long enough for Cousin C to gather ALL of the stray tennis balls on the grass. As it was starting to get crowded AND Cousin C was tired of playing alone, we headed out. BUT FIRST we stopped at the HUMAN playground so Cousin C could explore. There were a lot of cool things to climb on and while she did so, Mommy and I walked around. And around. And around. I was getting as bored as Mommy. When she spied the baby swings, I began to get a little nervous; but since I trust Mommy a lot, I went along with her putting me in the SWING.

Guess what? It was FUN! I kinda liked it a lot. You can see by the picture that I was casually sitting in the bucket with one arm hanging out. And then Mommy pushed the swing a little. . . WHEEEEEEEEEE! It was so FUN! We did it for a while longer and then it was time to head home again. I sure hope we go back to the swings again soon.

I am a SWINGER now, and PROUD of it!

Hahahaha - we think "swinger" might mean something different to humans but we think it's great! You look so cute. And you're so brave! We don't know if we would be okay on that swing.

Pug love from,

Noodles, you do look like you are having fun! I guess it would be like riding in a convertible car with the top down. Hope you get to go back for more this weekend!
Love,
Payton

I would love to go on a swing! These pictures are adorable. I have not been to a dog park in months! My humans think that Tennessee weather is still too cold to spend time at the dog park. Thank pug there is the doggie day-care I go to and I can still get hours of exercise there because obviously I cannot depend on my warm-blooded, silly humans to do it for me.

Wow! We've never been on swings either and now Mom wants to take us. Hmmm... I wonder if we'll like it.

Glad you had a fun time!

Lots of licks,
