2011 is looking to be much brighter than 2010 if New Years Day is any indication. Today was much brighter and warmer than yesterday. This meant there were more dogs in the park. Yesterday there were none in the small dog park, but today there was a nice mix.
By 12:30 Scraps and Rags got over their hangovers and dragged their haunches of of bed and to the dog park to play the other hungover dogs. Today at the dog park we met Mozy, BaileyTan, a small happy playful tan dog and also Ginger, a slightly larger tan dog in the large dog park. All three are new to the blogs tagging system, so welcome.
The small dog park was still covered with snow. This kept it clean and fun to run around in but eventually Scraps’ feet seemed to get cold so we headed to the large dog park where there was more of the ground was showing through the previously melted snow. With today’s high temperatures, the ground was much muddier than yesterday. Rags does really like the mud at all; what a princess.
We left around 1:30 when the sun began to hide behind a blanket of clouds. Prior to the sun leaving I was able to take lots of good light drenched pictures so check them out and enjoy. Happy New Year!

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.
With the Jets playing the Patriots at 4:00 and the Giants playing the Colts at 8:00, it afforded many people the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Sunday afternoon sunshine with the dogs at the dog park. After finishing her second week of beginners agility training on Sunday morning, Rags grabbed her brother Scraps and the bicycles and we all headed over to the dog park.
When we got there we discovered many dogs in the small dog park including tiny little RoxyChi who we met yesterday, Phoebe, Lewis and Clark and other came and went. This may have been the most crowded day we have had at the new dog park. At one point I tried to count and I estimate 40 dogs were in the large dog park with probably 10 more in the small. It was a great day and all the dogs seem to play well together.
After spending a while in the small dog park we entered the big one and did a lap. There we met Trace, a wiry-haired Jack Russell. There was the Carin Terrier named Guinness. Many new dogs to add to the blog. We then sat down with the big dogs in the shade and enjoyed their play. We saw this other white haired Jack Russell named Luna with a grey patch over her left eye. There was also Oliver the Bassett Hound. Wow, there were a lot of dogs and it was just so comfortable, everyone was just relaxing on the lawn while their dogs played. We spent 2 to 2 and a half hours at the park without batting an eye. We eventually ended up in the small dog park to close the day and the weekend. We are still enjoying this great dog park as its popularity keeps growing. It really has been a great gift to us.
