2011-02-26 Central Dog Park on the Ice

With a few warm wet days earlier in the week, the winter’s heavy base of snow was finally yielding to the sun, grass and mud.  What was left on the dog park’s surface was a very slick ice, which at times was treacherous to navigate.  It wasn’t the most inviting environment, but the temperatures in the upper 30’s and a strong sun, Scraps and Rags were due for some dog park action.

There were only a handful of dogs so we first hung out in the large dog park.  We met several new dogs to the blog including Buster, a jet black Briard, which is a French sheep herding dog.  He was fun and doofie.  We also met Babe the ball chasing light-colored Jack Russell/Yorkie mix.  Then there was Babe’s brother Homer, who was a very stocky Jack Russell.  He was funny in that he walked a lap or two around the park by himself , like an old man, and then joined his sister and mother when he was done.  Marlie was a Golden that we may have met before, or not as MarlieGold.  We welcome all these new dog to the dog blog.  Spring is just around the corner and we look forward to welcoming a whole new crop of puppies.

While today there weren’t a lot of dogs at the park, the ice made for a interesting visit and the sunlight enabled me to get many good, well-lit photos of the dogs as they would slip and slide, so check them out.  They were active and having fun.

2011-02-13 Central Dog Park on a Sunny Sunday Afternoon in the Snow

This Sunday was a much nicer day than yesterday.  It was sunnier, warmer and the snow was softer on the dogs’ paws.  This brought out lots of dogs including my beloved Scraps and Rags.  We first went to the small dog park where we played with many of the same dogs we saw yesterday.

I guess lots of the dogs have cabin fever and the warm sun got them excited.   With the bright sun and the playful dogs I was able to get many good action photos.  There was a lot of playing and running in the small dog park where about 10 dogs came out to play.  Later in the large dog park, there were mainly big dogs and they were also playing hard.

New to the dog park blog were a pair of giant Irish Wolf Hounds Petey and Katie.   There was also a brown bodied Pit-bull with a bright white face named Rocky who was getting picked on by the much smaller yet more tenacious Forrest, the Jack Russell.  We’ll refer to Rocky as RockyBrown.  Finally, in the small dog park we met a small Pit-bull like tan dog named Nigel.  For some reason, Nigel always gets bit so his Mom was fearing Rags may attack him.  It never happened.

2011-02-12 Central Dog Park in the Snow

Saturday in dog park, you think it was the 4th of July, not!  February 12 and the snow cover that materialized just after Christmas is still thick and icy.  It was scheduled to be relatively warm and sunny so Scraps and Rags headed out to the park.  It proved to be be windy, mostly cloudy and cold.  We only stayed about 45 minutes until Scraps began shivering too much.  Nevertheless we got some time in both the small dog park and then the big one.

We got some good photos though including some good ones of Bailey, the small white happy dog.  She is new to the dog park blog so welcome to BaileySmall. Bailey, the crazy pickup chasing dog, was also present at the dog park and since he’s got the name, we have to call the new one, Bailey Small.  I also discovered Cains as a new dog by his dog tag, so I welcome this dog to our blog also.

2010-12-18 Central Dog Park on a Cold Saturday Afternoon

In December, it has been tough for Scraps and Rags to find the chance to get to the dog park.  This Saturday was nice and sunny so that the cold temperature was not too much of a problem.  We were able to spend an hour in the small dog park with some of our old friends.  For the most part we had a good time except for a viscous skirmish Rags got into with Simba.  Good thing I was quick on the pull as I hoisted Rags in the air quickly before too much damage was done.  Short of that, it was a nice day with some nice pictures.  I liked Gracie’s red outfit, it reminded me of the PJ’s Agarn and O’Rooke used to wear on F-Troop.
