2011-02-27 Central Dog Park in the Melt

The last Sunday of February proved to be a much nicer day than yesterday as yesterday’s ice was turning to today’s slush.  Getting into the dog park was a muddy mess.  It’s what we all expected a few months ago thinking about the snow covering the dirt and we got it!  Not a good time to show up to the dog park without boots.  Just a suggestion if you plan on showing up in the next few days.

It was a tough day at the dog park for Scraps and especially Rags.  Rags and a tough little black dog named Addie got into a pretty fierce melee.  This wasn’t the first time they got into it like this so we have to watch out for that dog in the future.  Additionally, a new dog named Princess, a small scruffy little white dog also got into with Rags.  Then when we separated them, a Shepard named Bing started getting all riled up against both Scraps and Rags.  It was a tough time in the little dog park.

Bing and Princess were new to the park and blog, so I guess welcome to the two of them.  We also had a Sophie and Sophia, I think Sophia was the fluffy blackish-grey dog.  Finally we also had Leroy a dark brown Dachshund Toy-Poodle mix.  Welcome to all of them.

Though the schoolyard was a dog-eat-dog world, the skies outside were mostly sunny.  With the help of the sun I took some good action photographs, so check them out.

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.

2010-09-23 Central Dog Park on a Fall Thursday Evening

This is my first opportunity to take Scraps and Rags to the Central Dog Park now that Fall has arrived.  Though the weather still felt nice a summery, the days are getting shorter and the sunlight is getting more precious.  While I do love the new Central Dog Park, as I call it, I do see myself taking Scraps and Rags over to Denville as that dog park has lights.  Though not as nice as Central Dog Park during the day, at least the Denville Dog Park has lights and remains open all year long until 9:00 p.m.  For this reason alone, I would welcome and suggest to all those that haven’t joined the Denville Dog Park to do so, for your dog’s sake.  They don’t want to be cooped up all winter anymore than you do, and you won’t be able to bring them to Central Dog Park after work in the winter.  Click here to find out more about the Denville Dog Park.  It is just up the road from Central Dog Park.

There weren’t any dogs in the small dog park so we went all went right to the large one and met up with Patches who came running over to Scraps but didn’t see to care thereafter; strange?  There was this nice family of 4 small dogs we met when we first walked in including a cute white fluffy Pierre.  I forget the other 3 dogs names. There was a real cool play session between a little Boston looking terrier and a mutt-a-doodle type of dog.  It was just as precious and the waning sunlight.

2010-09-12 Central Dog Park in a Misty Dusk

After a Sunday that had rain and a Giant victory to open the 2010 football season, Scraps and Rags found themselves at the dog park with a few other dogs venturing their way out of their homes at around 6:30 p.m..  The dog park this evening was a much different experience than the previous nighs.  It was wet and pretty empty, only a few dogs were present and it had a eerie presence to it.
