2011-05-28 Central Dog Park after the Memorial Day Parade

Saturday morning of Memorial Day weekend means the traditional Morris Plains parade marches up Route 202.  A contingent of dog park attendees with their dogs walked as part of this parade.  Scraps and Rags prefer to watch the parade curbside instead of walking, but when the dog park crew came past us we all remembered how lucky we were to have the new dog park located just up the road from the parade site and close to home.

After the parade, Scraps and Rags headed to the dog park on the bicycles to have a little post parade fun.  Rags is enjoying her new ride, a front-mounted Wald bicycle basket and dog bed, which we just installed the previous night for Morristown’s critical mass bike ride.  The basket lets Rags ride in front of the handle bars, enjoy the wind and the view, and feels nicely secure for her 13 pound body.

We spent time in the small dog park and with the nice weather and the holiday weekend, we had a nice group of small one in the park.  Eventually a Shiba Inu dog club arrived with 4 or five of those Japanese dogs, so that was different.  I heard some one call one of them Suki, so let’s welcome Suki and all the other Shiba Inus to the dog park blog.

2011-05-07 Central Park Dog Park – It’s Good to Be Back

While the dog park at Central Park reopened last week, me and my camera haven’t been able to make it back until this beautiful springtime afternoon. While there weren’t many dogs in the small dog park, it was still good for Scraps and Rags to see two of their old friends Sebastian and GracieWhite. Scraps and Rags weren’t too interested in any of the dogs or doing much at all. They were preoccupied in the fact their mother wasn’t there with us. After Scraps totally gooped-up his neck in muck we headed home. Not a long day at the park but a precursor for good things to come in the upcoming season.  Get the dogs out and have some fun.

2011-02-27 Central Dog Park in the Melt

The last Sunday of February proved to be a much nicer day than yesterday as yesterday’s ice was turning to today’s slush.  Getting into the dog park was a muddy mess.  It’s what we all expected a few months ago thinking about the snow covering the dirt and we got it!  Not a good time to show up to the dog park without boots.  Just a suggestion if you plan on showing up in the next few days.

It was a tough day at the dog park for Scraps and especially Rags.  Rags and a tough little black dog named Addie got into a pretty fierce melee.  This wasn’t the first time they got into it like this so we have to watch out for that dog in the future.  Additionally, a new dog named Princess, a small scruffy little white dog also got into with Rags.  Then when we separated them, a Shepard named Bing started getting all riled up against both Scraps and Rags.  It was a tough time in the little dog park.

Bing and Princess were new to the park and blog, so I guess welcome to the two of them.  We also had a Sophie and Sophia, I think Sophia was the fluffy blackish-grey dog.  Finally we also had Leroy a dark brown Dachshund Toy-Poodle mix.  Welcome to all of them.

Though the schoolyard was a dog-eat-dog world, the skies outside were mostly sunny.  With the help of the sun I took some good action photographs, so check them out.

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.
