Sun and a cool refreshing breeze characterized this Thursday evening at the dog park. This brought Scraps and Rags out as well as hoards of other dogs. Since it was so nice and comfortable outside, I was able to capture several dogs playing in the sunlight with my camera. This resulted in many good pictures.
There were lots of new dogs to me and the dog park blog, so in mass we welcome Lexi the small brown Daschund , Onxy who is obviously black, Nelly who also black but smaller, RileyBrown who was fun and brown and finally there was Jake an off-white Aikto Shepard mix.
Scraps and Rags spent a couple of hours at the dog park this afternoon going from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. It was kind of cold because the sun wasn’t out but it really wasn’t too bad.
Initially in the small dog park, Scraps and Rags found a few small white dogs including a Westy named Oliver who we will welcome to the blog and refer to as OliverWest. We then strolled into the large dog park where there seemed to be a lot of golden types. We then headed back to the small dog park where we saw Rory the a Jack Russell, and Sebastian both chasing each other over a stick. It was nice in that Rags eventually got involved in the chase. We closed the evening back in the big dog park where Scraps and Rags had to contend with lots of dogs running around while Patches was making his presence known to them all.

After Scraps and Rags took a shortened kayak trip on the Split Rock reservoir we all headed to the dog park for a little more activity on solid ground. It was still beautiful outside when we arrived at 3:30, but the sun sets below the tall trees on the western side of the dog park casting a shadow along the entire grassy slope . This makes it difficult to get nice sunny photos, but I found the few spots where the sun leaks through the trees to capture some good photographs. I guess once winter comes the sunny light will shine through the leafless trees. Until then, the photos of the dogs are likely to be darker than desired but we will have the back-drop of colorful autumn leaves to help out.
At the dog park we welcome Jenny, a Jack-mix similar in size to Scraps. They played and sniffed for a bit. I don’t recall anyone new by name to add to the mix so I’ll just give you the link to the photos below.
TDIF – Thank Dog It’s Friday – That’s right, it was Friday afternoon at the dog park and Scraps and Rags arrived around 4:30 and stayed until dark, around 6:45. ‘Twas a beautiful day and evening and all the dogs seemed to bring their parents out for some fun the the dog park.
For Scraps and Rags it was a large dog park sandwich on small dog park bread. The large dog park had a lot of activity going on as there were play groups all over the place. Scraps eventually found his buddy Patches and they started their own little x-rated play group. There were so many dogs out in the dog park that it is hard to recall 1/10th of them. Tonight we will welcome Onxy to the group as I hope I got a good shot or two of him tonight. It is tough on those black dogs like Onyx to capture anything but a silhouette without direct sunlight, but we still try. In the small dog park we found very happy looking Jack Russell/Rat Terrier mix that some people were dog sitting named Sonny who looked a lot like Scraps and had his coloring.
