It was a nice crisp Saturday afternoon and when Scraps and Rags arrived at the small dog park. The nice weather brought out lots of dogs. There was a real cute 12-week old puppy playing with other small dogs and that gave me a great opportunity the capture some good photos.
Scraps and Rags aren’t much for playing so after a brief stint in the small dog park we took a leisurely walk around Central Park and then ended up at the large dog park’s western entrance. While closed to cars and parking, the gate was open to us so we enjoyed a second round of dog park fun in the large dog park. There was also a nice sized population of dogs playing here providing me the chance to capture lots of good action shots of the larger dogs playing. One new dog name I did discover by seeing it on a dog tag was Brandy, a smallish tan dog and amazingly enough the first one listed in this blog, so welcome to Brandy.
Scraps and Rags headed to the Denville Dog Park on this cold Saturday afternoon. Though the sun was out, the wind was strong and snow lingered on the ground from this week’s minor snowfalls. We couldn’t really chase balls in the small dog park because the grass was too swampy. Additionally, the snow covered the agility area so we just hung out in the moist gravel of the large dog park. There were only a handful of dogs but we did meet a new dog to the blog named Colby. He had similar coloring to Scraps and chased a ball over and over again; never tiring, it was pretty cool. At least the sun was out and dipping in the shy so we got some good lighting and coloring on the photos. By the way, the Morris County Dog Park at Central Park is still closed for maintenance.
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.
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.
