2010-10-16 Central Dog Park on a Sunny Saturday Afternoon

On a windy yet sunny Saturday afternoon, Scraps and Rags headed on over to the dog park to get some friendly activity in.  When we arrived there were lots of small white dogs in the small dog park including Lewis and Clark. Later on a young Pug named Bowie arrived and stirred up the pot a bit.  She was quite cute running around with her very special stick.

We then headed to the sunnier large dog park and caught some more activity there as the small dog park was emptying out.  There were also many dogs in the large park. We found this really cute patched brown and white Jack Russell right at the end of our stay.  I think a lot of people were trying to get their nice Saturday afternoon dog park time in before the 4:00 p.m. Yankee ALCS playoff game was scheduled to start.  Unless they pull a miracle off like they did in game 1, it looks like everyone would have been better off staying at the dog park.

2010-09-19 Central Dog Park on a Sunday Afternoon

With the Jets playing the Patriots at 4:00 and the Giants playing the Colts at 8:00, it afforded many people the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Sunday afternoon sunshine with the dogs at the dog park.  After finishing her second week of beginners agility training on Sunday morning, Rags grabbed her brother Scraps and the bicycles and we all headed over to the dog park.

When we got there we discovered many dogs in the small dog park including tiny little  RoxyChi who we met yesterday, Phoebe, Lewis and Clark and other came and went.  This may have been the most crowded day we have had at the new dog park.  At one point I tried to count and I estimate 40 dogs were in the large dog park with probably 10 more in the small.  It was a great day and all the dogs seem to play well together.

After spending a while in the small dog park we entered the big one and did a lap.  There we met Trace, a wiry-haired Jack Russell.  There was the Carin Terrier named Guinness.  Many new dogs to add to the blog.  We then sat down with the big dogs in the shade and enjoyed their play.  We saw this other white haired Jack Russell named Luna with a grey patch over her left eye.  There was also Oliver the Bassett Hound.  Wow, there were a lot of dogs and it was just so comfortable, everyone was just relaxing on the lawn while their dogs played.  We spent 2 to 2 and a half hours at the park without batting an eye.  We eventually ended up in the small dog park to close the day and the weekend.  We are still enjoying this great dog park as its popularity keeps growing.  It really has been a great gift to us.

2010-09-06 Central Dog Park on a busy Labor Day afternoon

On this picturesque ending of summer, Scraps and Rags jumped on the back of our bikes to enjoy our beloved Central Park dog park and today didn’t disappoint.  It is Labor Day Monday and it’s hot but not humid and a genuinely great afternoon for fun at the dog park.

We played in the small dog park for a while with the Westies, Lewis and Clark, who are new to the blog.  We also met Gracie who was large for a Jack Russell mix.  Scraps also found this small schnauzer named Hanz who he was trying to hump and he had nothing else on his mind while he was around.  He never pulled the trigger or completed his mission because Lewis and Clark kept interrupting his progress.  I didn’t stop him from humping the air, truly a missed opportunity.  Chester was also there sporting a new hair cut.

After leaving the small dog park we ventured into the large dog park we found a whole bunch of running and playing dogs as well as some sunlight for some nice photos. There were so many dogs at the park on this afternoon that it is impossible to recognize all of them, but I will mention a few.  We met Trent the friendly huskie who Rags only had a little problem with.  We know Fargoe the huskie from the Denville dog park and he makes Rags bark like the bitch that she really is.  It is therefore difficult to say if it is Fargoe or the huskie itself that makes her go crazy.  We also met a cool looking besengi named Einstein.  The other day at Rags’ agility debut someone mentioned they thought Rags had some besengi in her.  I had never heard of the breed and lo-and-behold there is a besengi at the dog park.  The last dog I’ll recognize and welcome to the blog is a black standard dog named Lucy.  I only know that because her name shows up so well on some of the photos.

That’s about it for this summer which began with the maturation of the DenvilleDogPark.com photo blog and now ends with the morphing of the blog into the MorrisCountyDogPark.com.  This came with the opening of Morris County’s new Dog Park at Central Park.  It been wonderful photographing all the dogs and video taping all the fun they have.  I look forward to the changing of the seasons and the beautiful kaleidoscope this dog park will become on a few special days as the trees change their colors, so stayed tuned for more fun at the dog park.
