Scraps and Rags arrived late on a cool “That G-d It’s Friday” missing all the good sunlight. What we missed in sun and we gained in fun as lots of dogs were there when we arrived. It was cool and they were playful. New to us and the blog were three dogs tonight including Mr. Strudel who Scraps had a thing for which was good to see, Sunny and Bella the wildly striped dog.
We all have to get our sleep as the opening of the new Morris County Central Park Dog Park opens tomorrow. I personally don’t like the name of it, I think it should be called Dog Park central. Nevertheless, the four of us intend on riding our bikes over there tomorrow morning at 10:00 to celebrate the opening. It should be a good time. That is one big dog park!
Scraps and Rags haven’t been at the dog park for over a week as we were all busy competing in a dog agility trial over the week end. We got there pretty early, before most of the other dogs. At the park were SammyBlack, Goji, Phoebe and a new dog to us and the blog, Cookie a Golden who quickly pinned Scraps against the fence and overwhelmed him in a pretty frightening manner. He then proceeded to do the same to Rags. We boogied into the small dog park and threw a few balls around until Cookie left. I hope we don’t meet him again.
We then re-joined the rest of the safe dogs in the main area. A whole bunch of dogs began to arrive around 6:00 p.m. and the dog park was about as busy as I have seen it since we have gone there. I count 23 dogs and I probably missed 1 or 2. Unfortunately, the clouds rolled in and the light was not there to effectively capture all the action in all it glory. I did what I could. There is probably better video than there is photography. Let me not forget that also new to the blog arriving late before I left were Tucker, Maggie and Carter. Finally, while Cindy came right as we left, I don’t think I got any pictures of her, but if I gave Cookie a mention after what he did to Scraps and Rags, I didn’t want to forget Cindy.
On my way to the Denville Dog Park I noticed the competition, the new Morris County Dog Park by Greystone, and it was having a soft opening. The fence was completed for the small dog park and Scraps and Rags decided to check it out before we all headed to the Denville Dog Parkas planned. Will I need to set up a Morris County Dog Park blog or do I join forces with DenvilleDogPark.com? I will likely have and new one for that dog park while setting up links between to two so you can follow Scraps and Rags where ever they play.
When I made it to the Denville Dog Park there were a few new dogs that showed up. They include Charlie the brown lab, who I will tag as CharlieBrown. Then there was Molly the golden dog and GracieTan the Buddy look alike Finally, there was Riley the majestic long-haired auburn German Shepard with the amber eyes. Then there were lots of the rest of the ordinary crowd.
Scraps and Rags arrived at the dog park after the sunset so I only took a few pictures and a little video. New to the http://www.DenvilleDogPark.com blog was a boxer named Diesel. He was hyped up and all psyched to play with Quick, more so than Quick wanting to play with him.
