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.
Scraps and Rags got arrived at 12:00 noon on this beautiful Saturday. Some of autumn’s color were still shining through. It made a nice back drop for the day’s activities and photographs. There were a lot of cars and dogs at the park when we arrived. There were a whole bunch of small ones and and big bunch of big ones so we headed to the small dog park first. There were lots of couples fighting and frolicking which sometimes crossed paths and joined into mass circling. Was a lot of fun in that small dog park.
There was much of the same in the large dog park. We only stayed until 12:55 but we saw a lot of new dogs. The only one I got the name of was Sadie, the grey Weisenheimer, as she flew in front of the camera just right so I could read her blue name tag, so we welcome Sadie to the blog.
It was a nice comfortable day, there were a lot of dogs playing and having fun and the sun was shining. This made for a lot of nice pictures so check them all out.
TGIF – Scraps and Rags arrived at the dog park after a long hard week of dog work, so they were psyched it was Friday and that they were at the dog park. When we arrived we saw there was only one lonely dog in the small dog park, so we spent the entire time in the large dog park. There were must have been 20-30 dogs in the large dog park so there was a good crowd in there.
We saw Lily, the brown and white Poodle, who we used to often see at the Denville dog park. Lily eventually found some dogs to play with, so that was good to see. We hung with the group of 4 hot dogs hanging around trying their best to cause and not to cause chaos. Eventually, Forrest the the brown-eyed while Jack Russell, showed up and he got Rags going where they were chasing each other for a little while. When Patches and MiloLong showed up, Forrest gravitated to Patches filling the void Scraps would have liked to fill. On this day Scraps was just a bystander. Good thing, because as Patches and Forrest were going at it two larger more intimidating dogs were surrounding the two of them and barking like mad. That would have made me nervous. Patches says, “Bring it on.”
While it wasn’t cloudy outside, the winds blew steadily and it felt cold. Scraps and Rags only hung out for 45 minutes before we left to eat dinner. In that short time we got a few photos, so check them out.
