2011-05-14 Dogs Gone Wild Fundraiser for Denville Dog Park and Animal Shelter

Dogs Gone Wild fundraiser for the Denville dog park and animal shelter was billed as an off leash swimming and playing for event your dogs enjoyment, picnic area for your enjoyment. The fee for the event was $10 for dog park members $20 for non members all money goes to support the denville dog park and animal shelter.

Previous years’ Dogs Gone Wild have helped create and build the Happy Hound Playground (Denville Dog Park) as well as help pay for the new Gazebo, benches, picnic tables and the new dog pool that will be installed this spring at the dog park. Contributions have also helped pay for medical expenses for animals that are in need at the Denville Animal shelter.

This was the first time Scraps and Rags ever made it to this event and from the talk we heard, the turnout was better than ever.  It was cloudy with no sun but it wasn’t cold and it never rained.  While no people went in the water above their knees, many a dog took the opportunity to play in the water and have some wet fun.  It was tough to recognize many of the dogs that were we because they just don’t look the same.

There was a high density of dogs in and around the water giving me up close access to a lot of action.  The only thing missing was the sun.  Nevertheless, the happiness of the dogs playing in the water with so many of their friends in and around them more than made up for the lack of sunlight and resulted in many good pictures.

I hope the event made some good money for Denville and Scraps and Rags  look forward to coming to many more of these Dogs Gone Wild events at Cook’s Pond.  You can also help support the dog park buy purchasing photographs of the dogs I took during the day.

2010-09-01 – Bark-Hopping ‘Round Town

Scraps and Rags haven’t been to the Denville dog park in quite some time so we wanted to head over there and say hello to some of their buddies.  This time around, there were lots of our old buddies running about.  The sun was setting but the dogs were playing in its glow and I was able to get some good photos from the warmly lit Denville dog park.

Does anyone know this dog's name?

It was nice that I was able to practice a little agility jumping with Rags as she is going to be running in her first pseudo-official agility run (jumpers only) this Saturday.  Scraps will also be running but this is routine practice for him at this point.  As usual, Rags was totally annoying and unsocial to Fargoe, I feel terrible about that relationship.  Good thing Fargoe is so even tempered cause he would and should have eaten Rags for dinner.  I don’t want to fail to mention that Charlie had an on-going humpfest with MollyGold’s leg.  Nothing was enough for Charlie tonight.

After Denville we moseyed on down to the Central Park dog park to play with a few little dogs on the way home.  There we saw Yoshi and Phoebe as well as Spike who is now officially named and recognized on the blog, so welcome Spike. Actually you can see him on yesterday’s posting featured prominently in the video.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any photos or videos to show from our time at the Morris County dog park.

2010-08-20 – Morris County Central Dog Park – Biked Over Before Sunset

TGIF and Scraps and Rags were all excited to prepare for the weekend with a trip to the Central Dog Park after their dinner.  We loaded them up on the back of our bikes and pedaled on down to the dog park on a beautifully just over a flat mile away from home.  This was the type of experience we were hoping for with the opening of the new dog park and this Friday evening’s nice weather afforded us the opportunity to hit up this new dog park in style.

Already early in its existence, this dog park has attracted many people and tonight we had a nice crowd of dogs including many small ones.  We saw some of our doggy buddies from the Denville Dog  Park including Jax and Chester.   Best of all, Scraps found a cute little doggy buddy named Patches who hung out with Scraps from the moment they first laid noses on each other.  We walked laps around the dog park and Patches followed us around with Scraps.  They really hit it off.

Unfortunately, I didn’t do a good job on taking pictures and I am stuck with what I have.  It’s a difficult place to get good pictures with the trees blocking the sun from many angles.  I’m going to have to focus, pardon the pun, concentrate and learn how to get good pictures in the more sun-challenged environment of the Central Dog Park.

2010-06-24– Denville Dog Before and After Sunset

After a hot and humid day, the dog park proved to be quite a comfortable place to hang after the sun began to set.  The big new addition, and I do mean big, was Milo the St Bernard.  He was quite mellow but he had something about him that made other dogs like Rags and Harley bark at him.  It must be the “new dog in the park syndrome.”  Unfortunately, by the time Jax, Murphy and Harley arrived it was getting dark and I didn’t get any good pictures of these dogs.  Goes to show you have to get there when the light is shining right.
