2011-05-28 Central Dog Park after the Memorial Day Parade

Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend means the traditional Morris Plains parade marches up Route 202.  A contingent of dog park attendees with their dogs walked as part of this parade.  Scraps and Rags prefer to watch the parade curbside instead of walking, but when the dog park crew came past us we all remembered how lucky we were to have the new dog park located just up the road from the parade site and close to home.

After the parade, Scraps and Rags headed to the dog park on the bicycles to have a little post parade fun.  Rags is enjoying her new ride, a front-mounted Wald bicycle basket and dog bed, which we just installed the previous night for Morristown’s critical mass bike ride.  The basket lets Rags ride in front of the handle bars, enjoy the wind and the view, and feels nicely secure for her 13 pound body.

We spent time in the small dog park and with the nice weather and the holiday weekend, we had a nice group of small one in the park.  Eventually a Shiba Inu dog club arrived with 4 or five of those Japanese dogs, so that was different.  I heard some one call one of them Suki, so let’s welcome Suki and all the other Shiba Inus to the dog park blog.

2011-04-03 Lewis Morris Dog Park on a Beautiful Sunday

With the dog park at Central Park still closed for renovations and the fact that Scraps and Rags were the only dogs at Denville Dog park on the previous afternoon, we decided to check out the dog park at Lewis Morris Park. We haven’t been to that dog park for a long time but the weather was really nice and we had to go somewhere.  As they say, it was a dog day afternoon.

We headed to Lewis Morris Park fully intending to hike the trails but we figured we would see what was going on at the dog park first.  To our pleasant surprise, the place was packed.  There was even a handful of dogs in the depressing small dog park. With a handful of small dogs, that little plot of blacktop turned out to be a good time.

We hung in the dog park for a while and then decided to hike around the park.  When we got back to the dog park there were even more dogs around and more were on the way.  Though we only stayed in the small dog park, and there were many more dogs in the large park, we still met several new dogs to the dog park blog; so welcome in the food category Porkchop, Meatball and Tofu.  There was also the small dark grey furry dog named Gracie who we will call GracieGrey. There are a lot of Gracies out there and the name is taken. Finally, there was also Molly a cockerpoo, I believe, so we will refer to her as MollyPoo.  There are lots of Mollies also and that name is also taken.

A nice thing about the small tight dog park from a picture taking perspective  is that there is no shade and no where for the dogs to hide so I get more close-up than usual and a higher density of poses.  There are many good pictures so take a look.

2011-02-12 Central Dog Park in the Snow

Saturday in dog park, you think it was the 4th of July, not!  February 12 and the snow cover that materialized just after Christmas is still thick and icy.  It was scheduled to be relatively warm and sunny so Scraps and Rags headed out to the park.  It proved to be be windy, mostly cloudy and cold.  We only stayed about 45 minutes until Scraps began shivering too much.  Nevertheless we got some time in both the small dog park and then the big one.

We got some good photos though including some good ones of Bailey, the small white happy dog.  She is new to the dog park blog so welcome to BaileySmall. Bailey, the crazy pickup chasing dog, was also present at the dog park and since he’s got the name, we have to call the new one, Bailey Small.  I also discovered Cains as a new dog by his dog tag, so I welcome this dog to our blog also.

2011-01-30 Central Dog Park in the Snow

With the cold and snow of January, Scraps and Rags haven’t been to the dog park much to date in 2011.  It was relatively warm on this Sunday giving the the dogs a chance to enjoy the dog park in the snow without too much worry about being cold.

There is still a very thick foundation of snow on the ground and no dirt and mud to ugly up the entire place.  Those days are coming.  There were lots of dogs taking advantage of the nice day so we were able to have enough fun in the small dog park with the handful of dogs in there.  New to the blog is Butters the tan and white Jack Russell who had a good time chasing snow balls.

Toward then end of the day the sun came out from the clouds enough to get a few really nice shots.  The snow gives us a new perspective on the dogs, so check of the pictures I took, especially if you were there.
