2010-08-11 Denville Dog Park before sunset but in the clouds

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.

2010-07-31 Denville Dog Park a quick one before and after sunset

After a quick little kayak trip by the Meadowlands, we decided to get a little dog park time in before dinner.  It was a beautiful night with only a handful or two of dogs in the park.  Scraps and Rags did a little agility in the down-time.

2010-07-29 Denville Dog Park before sunset

Welcome Sammy and Heidi

When Scraps and Rags arrived around 5:30 there weren’t many dogs around.  It was earlier than we usually arrive, we even beat Darby.  In the park were Phoebe who quickly left and Charlie Brown.  There was also a new 7-month old black dog named Sammy who was there for the duration.  It was a nice evening after the afternoon’s heavy rains and the dogs began to arrive in numbers.  Also new to the blog was a 6 month old Shepard named Heidi.  Finally, there was a white dog named Micky who I have seen before but never knew his name.  I left before sunset so I assume there were many other dogs soon to arrive but an hour and a half were enough for us.  Until next time, bow-wow.

2010-07-23 Denville Dog Park before and after sunset

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.
