2011-03-26 Denville Dog Park – A Cold Saturday

Scraps and Rags headed to the Denville Dog Park on this cold Saturday afternoon.  Though the sun was out, the wind was strong and snow lingered on the ground from this week’s minor snowfalls.  We couldn’t really chase balls in the small dog park because the grass was too swampy.  Additionally, the snow covered the agility area so we just hung out in the moist gravel of the large dog park.  There were only a handful of dogs but we did meet a new dog to the blog named Colby. He had similar coloring to Scraps and chased a ball over and over again; never tiring, it was pretty cool.  At least the sun was out and dipping in the shy so we got some good lighting and coloring on the photos.  By the way, the Morris County Dog Park at Central Park is still closed for maintenance.

2011-03-05 Denville Dog Park on Saturday Afternoon

With weather approaching the 60’s on this afternoon, Scraps and Rags were looking forward to going to the Morris County dog park to soak up the warmth. I would say the sun, but clouds were more prevalent than the sun.

As we approached the dog park, we noticed no cars. We thought this was odd as the nice weather should dictate a big crowd. As we pulled up we saw the park was closed for maintenance which was both disappointing and relieving. The disappointment is short-term in that we couldn’t go to the dog park today but happy that the Morris County Park Commission is on the ball maintaining the dog park after a difficult winter. In addition, the dog park needs some type of survival plan to withstand the long-term beating it will get starting this spring.

Good thing we maintained our membership at the Denville Dog Park so we just headed on over there. We could have gone to Lewis Morris, but Denville made the most sense. It was smart thinking, or just luck,  that we brought our Denville Dog Park badge and training treats so we could do some agility practice with Scraps and Rags.

When we got there were several dogs playing in the large park. We initially went to the small to toss some small balls around, and in a heartbeat, most of the dogs were gone.  Just Molly and a Shepard remained.  We did some dog agility training, threw some balls, hung out and headed home. We passed by the Morris County Dog Park on the way home where Bailey in the Bonneville was yearning for some activity all alone in the parking lot.  We stopped off for a walk around Greystone where we hooked up with Ringo who was out doing the same exact thing.  Sounds like a Woody Guthrie song.

2010-09-28 Central Dog Park After Sunset

After a few days of rain, the sky cleared up enough just before the 7:00 p.m. darkness to let Scraps and Rags out to enjoy the dog park.  It was nice outside with a fast moving cloudy sky indicating a clearing was just ahead of us.  We played in the small dog park with Max, Gracie and a new dachshund named Stanley.  We eventually did a dark lap in the large dog park and met up with Molly and a 12 week old Boxer named Johnny U.

2010-08-11 Denville Dog Park before sunset but in the clouds

Scraps and Rags haven’t been at the dog park for over a week as we were all busy competing in a dog agility trial over the week end.  We got there pretty early, before most of the other dogs.  At the park were SammyBlack, Goji, Phoebe and a new dog to us and the blog, Cookie a Golden who quickly pinned Scraps against the fence and overwhelmed him in a pretty frightening manner.  He then proceeded to do the same to Rags.  We boogied into the small dog park and threw a few balls around until Cookie left. I hope we don’t meet him again.

We then re-joined the rest of the safe dogs in the main area.  A whole bunch of dogs began to arrive around 6:00 p.m. and the dog park was about as busy as I have seen it since we have gone there.  I count 23 dogs and I probably missed 1 or 2.  Unfortunately, the clouds rolled in and the light was not there to effectively capture all the action in all it glory.  I did what I could.  There is probably better video than there is photography.  Let me not forget that also new to the blog arriving late before I left were Tucker, Maggie and Carter. Finally, while Cindy came right as we left, I don’t think I got any pictures of her, but if I gave Cookie a mention after what he did to Scraps and Rags, I didn’t want to forget Cindy.
