2010-10-24 Central Dog Park on a Sunny Sunday Afternoon

It was a busy dog Sunday for Rags, and too a lesser extent Scraps, which culminated in a great day at Morris County’s dog park located at Central Park.  It is really beautiful hanging out in Morris County right now as the weather is just right and the leaves are in full color all over.

We started the day at agility class with Rags over at St. Huberts in Chatham.  The practice field there was in full living color and a delight to go to. Rags is beginning to learn how to work an agility course.  Right from dog class we stopped by Morristown where a parade of dogs in Halloween costumes was just getting underway.  This was a really nice dog event and I took lots of nice pictures of the dogs in costume, so check them out here.  From the parade we decided to go to the dog park with Scraps and Rags.

Central Park was bustling with some type of racing event at the park-side and the dog park was loaded with dogs.  What a great new park!  We arrived around 1:00 and the sunlight was good for photographs.  We ventured into the small dog park for quite a while as there was a lot of activity there.  Many white dogs.  We saw Ringo!  Lucky was a cute new brown dog (Dachshund Chihuahua mix) with long pointy ears.  Sebastian of course was there stirring up the pot and when Lewis and Clark arrived, it was just that much more doggy bedlam.  Too bad Scraps and Rags did partake in much of it.  Doesn’t matter, Rags was pooped from the previous activities and resting in the comfortable park was relaxing.  It gave me an opportunity to get pictures of the other dogs.

We then hung in the large park for a while.  There was also a lot of activity over there.  We did a lap, enjoyed the foliage, took lots of pictures and then headed home.  I ran out of battery power on the camera, so there was no use hanging out in the dog park any more.

2010-10-22 Central Dog Park – TGIF at Dusk

TGIF – Scraps and Rags arrived at the dog park after a long hard week of dog work, so they were psyched it was Friday and that they were at the dog park.  When we arrived we saw there was only one lonely dog in the small dog park, so we spent the entire time in the large dog park.  There were must have been 20-30 dogs in the large dog park so there was a good crowd in there.

We saw Lily, the brown and white Poodle, who we used to often see at the Denville dog park.  Lily eventually found some dogs to play with, so that was good to see.  We hung with the group of 4 hot dogs hanging around trying their best to cause and not to cause chaos.  Eventually, Forrest the the brown-eyed while Jack Russell, showed up and he got Rags going where they were chasing each other for a little while.  When Patches and MiloLong showed up, Forrest gravitated to Patches filling the void Scraps would have liked to fill. On this day Scraps was just a bystander.  Good thing, because as Patches and Forrest were going at it two larger more intimidating dogs were surrounding the two of them and barking like mad.  That would have made me nervous.  Patches says, “Bring it on.”

While it wasn’t cloudy outside, the winds blew steadily and it felt cold.  Scraps and Rags only hung out for 45 minutes before we left to eat dinner.  In that short time we got a few photos, so check them out.

2010-10-18 Central Dog Park – Overcast Monday Afternoon

Scraps and Rags spent a couple of hours at the dog park this afternoon going from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  It was kind of cold because the sun wasn’t out but it really wasn’t too bad.

Initially in the small dog park, Scraps and Rags found a few small white dogs including a Westy named Oliver who we will welcome to the blog and refer to as OliverWest.    We then strolled into the large dog park where there seemed to be a lot of golden types.  We then headed back to the small dog park where we saw Rory the a Jack Russell, and Sebastian both chasing each other over a stick.  It was nice in that Rags eventually got involved in the chase.  We closed the evening back in the big dog park where Scraps and Rags had to contend with lots of dogs running around while Patches was making his presence known to them all.

2010-10-11 Central Dog Park on Columbus Day

Columbus Day provided the opportunity for Scraps and Rags to enjoy the dog park during the day.  The weather cooperated, as it did all weekend long, and proved to be one of those days that makes you want to spend hours and hours just watching the dogs play.  We did that for about 2 hours s such we saw lots of different dogs come and go.   Still there are always new dogs we haven’t seen yet showing up at the dog park.

We we arrived and there were about 8-10 cute little dogs in the small dog park so we joined them.  A few more showed up thereafter making it one of the more crowded days in the small dog park.  We then strolled into the larger dog park to complete our picture taking.  Welcoming OllieLong to the blog as well as another long dog, Gertrude. I don’t think I’m going to have to add the “Long” onto Gertrude as I don’t expect another Gertrude to materialize.
