On this picturesque ending of summer, Scraps and Rags jumped on the back of our bikes to enjoy our beloved Central Park dog park and today didn’t disappoint. It is Labor Day Monday and it’s hot but not humid and a genuinely great afternoon for fun at the dog park.
We played in the small dog park for a while with the Westies, Lewis and Clark, who are new to the blog. We also met Gracie who was large for a Jack Russell mix. Scraps also found this small schnauzer named Hanz who he was trying to hump and he had nothing else on his mind while he was around. He never pulled the trigger or completed his mission because Lewis and Clark kept interrupting his progress. I didn’t stop him from humping the air, truly a missed opportunity. Chester was also there sporting a new hair cut.
After leaving the small dog park we ventured into the large dog park we found a whole bunch of running and playing dogs as well as some sunlight for some nice photos. There were so many dogs at the park on this afternoon that it is impossible to recognize all of them, but I will mention a few. We met Trent the friendly huskie who Rags only had a little problem with. We know Fargoe the huskie from the Denville dog park and he makes Rags bark like the bitch that she really is. It is therefore difficult to say if it is Fargoe or the huskie itself that makes her go crazy. We also met a cool looking besengi named Einstein. The other day at Rags’ agility debut someone mentioned they thought Rags had some besengi in her. I had never heard of the breed and lo-and-behold there is a besengi at the dog park. The last dog I’ll recognize and welcome to the blog is a black standard dog named Lucy. I only know that because her name shows up so well on some of the photos.

That’s about it for this summer which began with the maturation of the DenvilleDogPark.com photo blog and now ends with the morphing of the blog into the MorrisCountyDogPark.com. This came with the opening of Morris County’s new Dog Park at Central Park. It been wonderful photographing all the dogs and video taping all the fun they have. I look forward to the changing of the seasons and the beautiful kaleidoscope this dog park will become on a few special days as the trees change their colors, so stayed tuned for more fun at the dog park.
