2011-02-06 Central Dog Park in the Snow

The hair style being sported by Rory is precious!

Super Bowl Sunday at the dog park brought some of the nicest weather of the winter as the temperatures approached the 40s in strong sunlight.  It was warm enough to soften the icy crust on the snow making a nice comfortable environment for the Scraps and Rags.

We all arrived around 11:45 and stayed for an hour and a half.  The snow didn’t seem to bother the dog’s feet too much.  Maybe the musher’s wax we used on their paws helped.  We bought that years ago and haven’t tried it much, but figured we would give it a go today.

We spent about an hour in the small dog park as we watched Rory and Sebastian do what they do. Gracie White also found someone to play with and Scraps chased balls while Rags took it all in, rarely getting involved in a running scuffle. We did meet the cute little Enzo in the small dog park who  enjoyed playing with Rory and looked like a lot of fun.

After the small dog park thinned out we went into the large  dog park.  The must have been 20 dog in there.  In there I met Karachi, a big tan sleek dog by catching his name on his tag in a photo.  We welcome Enzo and Karachi to the dog park blog.

The sun was out for the most part and it gave me a great opportunity to photograph the dogs.  There were “snow” many good pictures, so check them out.

2010-12-31 Central Dog Park on NYE in the Snow

Scraps and Rags were able to enjoy the last day of the year at Morris County’s dog park with a dozen or so puppy pals.  It was nice and warm, yet not sunny so the pictures lack a little shine to them.  The snow from the previous blizzard covered half the dog park while dry ground covered the rest. There was a surprisingly small amount of mud considering that quite a bit of snow had melted.

We were able to find a couple of new dogs to the blog based on extracting their names from their dog tags.  We welcome Tanner the brown muscular dog and Zoey the cute auburn dog.  Additionally, we welcome Mallomar the Belgian Shepard and Tootsie the little black pug like animal to the blog.  We met them before but I guess they were never officially tagged and welcomed.

Happy New Year to all the dogs and the people and we all look forward to our first full year at the Morris County Dog Park at Central Park.

2010-11-02 Central Dog Park on Election Day

It was a beautiful Election Day 2010 and this gave Scraps and Rags the opportunity to both go vote and take a nice long walk to and from the dog park.  It’s 1.3 miles each way, but it gave me a chance to enjoy the colors and even photograph a hawk in a tree on the way home. Unfortunately, the dogs can’t vote, is that right? and as Bailey’s fathers was discussing, therefore they have no hope of ever getting government sponsored health care coverage.  It’s a wacky dog-eat-dog world out there so stay on your paws out there.

When we arrived at the dog park at 12:45 it wasn’t too crowded but I did get the opportunity to meet and welcome Bosco the black, not brown, fluffy dog to the blog.  There was also Ziva the black dog who I didn’t really meet but was able to read his name off his tag.   While only there for 45 minutes we got lots of good photographs of the dogs,  so check them out.  Speaking of voting, inside the photo galleries of the Fidogenic.SmugMug.com site you can vote on pictures you like so feel free to like a photo or two. The most popular photos may one day end up on the front cover of Fidogeneic.SmugMug.com so vote for your favorite.

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.
