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 a delightfully cool Monday night there were lots of dogs there to welcome Scraps and Rags. Rags for some reason has issues with Fargoe the husky as she barked and barked at him all evening long. Does anyone know the name of the smaller of the two tan dogs here?Not Winston, but the other one.
Once again, after visiting the new Morris County dog park by Greystone, Scraps and Rags headed on over to the tried and true Denville Dog Park for a visit with some of their friends. Just to report, while there are no amenities like water, seats or garbage pails, the new dog park looks like it is secure to use with a nice fence around both the small dog park, which is nicely shaded and the rolling grass fields of the main area. It is worth checking out if you want to give you dog a place to really run. In Denville tonight, there were no new dogs but plenty of old friends to share the humidity with.
The weather broke from its heatwave a bit enabling Scraps and Rags to finally get out of the house and enjoy the dog park. Well it let Rags get to the dog park and bark at every dog she encountered while Scraps was just wanting his mom to show up. She never did. Nevertheless, a lot of other dogs also took this opportunity to get out of their respective houses and enjoy the comfortable weather. There were several new dogs to our www.DenvilleDogPark.com blog including Sammy and Sarge, Roxy, Coco, Abby, Emma, Darla and Fargoe. Additionally, there was a little black dog who was there when I first arrived but I don’t know his name. He is currently known as ?-dog until someone tels me his name for real. Please leave a comment if you know this black dog’s name.
