2011-11-08 Morris County Dog Park on Election Day Afternoon

With the sun now setting depressingly early in the afternoon, we were able to get Scraps and Rags to the dog park before it got too dark.  They haven’t been to the dog park for almost a month as their schedules have kept them busy.  When they got there they saw their old friend Chester in the small dog park.  We all then headed to the large dog park where larger dogs playing “ruff.” I did get a few dark photos and even a video from my new iPhone4S  so check them out if you want.

2011-10-09 Morris County Dog Park on a Sunny Sunday Morning

Scraps and Rags have had a very busy summer schedule and haven’t had as much time this season time to spend at the dog park as they did last year.  When we woke up on this Sunday morning, the sun was up and the air was warm and the forecast was positive so we couldn’t waste this opportunity to get on our bicycles and peddle to the dog park.

We arrived around 11:30 and the sun wasn’t quite overhead so I was able to mix some of the sunlight and action that the playing dogs provided to capture some nice photographs.  We only stayed in the small dog park but there were many small dogs in there to keep us busy.  New to the dog park blog are Layla, Sadie and MurphyJack, the Jack Russel/Beagle looking mix so we welcome all of them.

One-Year Anniversary of the Dog Park at Morris County Central Park

Central Dog Park on August 14, 2010 - Opening Day

August 14, 2010 is when the dog park at Morris County’s Central Park officially opened for business and today we recognize this  special one-year anniversary.  Let’s take this opportunity to relive the year at the dog park through some of the pictures that were taken.  Click here to go back and read about the grand-opening of the dog park.

Scraps and Rags enjoying the foliage, Oct. 23, 2010

The dog park survived a brilliant opening end of summer and beautiful fall with all its foliage.   The winter was filled with large snow falls that never really melted throughout the season.   The snowfall and subsequent mud-basin left the large dog park scarred and missing a huge portion of its once original lush grass.  The Park Commission closed the entire park for most of March and April enabling repairs to the parking lot.  It was a very difficult winter.   When the dog park reopened the front half of the large dog park was closed and grass seeds were planted and the grass came back surprising well.  The back half of the park was then closed letting it rest its weary blades. This pattern seemed to have worked for this year but only time will tell how the dog park will survive under the heavy use it experiences.  The real bummer about this pattern is that it closes the perimeter path off to walk laps.  That was one of the great features of this dog park that we lost.  It would be great if they were able to figure out a way to cordon off the grass areas to lay fallow while they leave the perimeter path open for use all year ’round.

Short of providing more garbage pails inside the dog parks themselves, the dog park has been a real treat for Scraps and Rags during the past 12 months and we look forward to many additional years.  I have taken thousands of pictures and you can look at them all as described below.

2011-08-12 Central Dog Park on a nice Friday evening

Scraps and Rags arrived at the dog park on this very nice, comfortable Friday evening after the sun set behind the trees in the small dog park.  This meant it was pretty dark in the small dog park for photos but it was coll and comfortable and it brought out many dogs.  New to the dog blog was Forrest, now known as ForrerstGrey since there is already a Forrest on the blog.  ForrestGrey was an anxious grey short-haired poodle type that Scraps took a liking to as the two of them pranced around together.  There were lots of other small dogs also.  It’s just too bad there wasn’t enough light to get too many good pictures that were in focus as the dogs ran around.
