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.

2010-11-28 Central Dog Park on Sunday Afternoon

Sunday was by far the nicest day of the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Though cold, the strong sun combined with no winds made it a very nice day at Morris County’s dog park. There were a lot of dogs enjoying the opportunity to get out and enjoy the sunshine.  Scraps and Rags arrived around 11:00 to find no small dogs in the small dog park. The big dog park was quite active so we went into it only to find all the small dogs were in the big park.  It was good to see Sebastian survived and thrived.  Finally, you have to check out the variety of outfits worn by the dogs.

Most of the dogs were back at the far side of the park as the area where most people congregate has turned muddy and slippery.  This situation is only going to get worse because we still have not had a lot of rain or a snow melt since the dog park has opened; and a lot of the grass is gone.  Mudfests await us all in our dog park future, so I suggest everyone get a good set of boots for when it comes.

Scraps ad Rags eventually meandered into the small dog park around 12:30 as a nice crowd assembled in there.  We met a cool new dog named Wilson, a recent rescue with the wild eyes.  It was his first time to the dog park so we welcome him to both the park and the blog.  We also had Penny the MiniPin who is new to the blog so welcome to her.

The sunlight was good and I was able to capture some good action in the photographs.  With all the dogs, the good lighting and the 2.5 hours we spent at the dog park I took the most photos I have taken so far at the dog park, so check them out.

2010-08-13 Denville Dog Park after sunset

Scraps and Rags arrived late on a cool “That G-d It’s Friday” missing all the good sunlight.  What we missed in sun and we gained in fun as lots of dogs were there when we arrived.  It was cool and they were playful.  New to us and the blog were three dogs tonight including Mr. Strudel who Scraps had a thing for which was good to see, Sunny and Bella the wildly striped dog.

We all have to get our sleep as the opening of the new Morris County Central Park Dog Park opens tomorrow.  I personally don’t like the name of it, I think it should be called Dog Park central.  Nevertheless, the four of us intend on riding our bikes over there tomorrow morning at 10:00 to celebrate the opening.   It should be a good time.  That is one big dog park!

2010-07-02 Denville Dog Park at Sunset

I counted up to 14 dogs at the park while Scraps and Rags were there at sunset from 6:30 to 7:45.  That’s a lot of frolicking on a beautiful Friday evening that is sending us off in to the 4th of July holiday weekend. Have a good one every one!
