2010-10-18 Central Dog Park – Overcast Monday Afternoon

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.

2010-10-09 – Central Dog Park on a Sunny Afternoon

Saturday of this weekend turned out to be as nice as Friday was yesterday.  The big difference is we were able to take our time and enjoy several hours in the dog park on a sunny afternoon.  Scraps and Rags first hung out with a handful of small dogs in the small dog park before heading over to where the big guys were.  There we did a couple of laps and watched many dogs come and go.  There were large numbers at the park around 3:00 with many dogs playing and running.  It looked like a good time to me for most dogs there.

We met a few new dogs including the Dachshund named Jackson and a Jack Russell named Harley.  With so many Harleys in the dog-eat-dog world, we will call this one HarleyJack.

2010-10-08 Central Dog Park into Sunset

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.

2010-09-23 Central Dog Park on a Fall Thursday Evening

This is my first opportunity to take Scraps and Rags to the Central Dog Park now that Fall has arrived.  Though the weather still felt nice a summery, the days are getting shorter and the sunlight is getting more precious.  While I do love the new Central Dog Park, as I call it, I do see myself taking Scraps and Rags over to Denville as that dog park has lights.  Though not as nice as Central Dog Park during the day, at least the Denville Dog Park has lights and remains open all year long until 9:00 p.m.  For this reason alone, I would welcome and suggest to all those that haven’t joined the Denville Dog Park to do so, for your dog’s sake.  They don’t want to be cooped up all winter anymore than you do, and you won’t be able to bring them to Central Dog Park after work in the winter.  Click here to find out more about the Denville Dog Park.  It is just up the road from Central Dog Park.

There weren’t any dogs in the small dog park so we went all went right to the large one and met up with Patches who came running over to Scraps but didn’t see to care thereafter; strange?  There was this nice family of 4 small dogs we met when we first walked in including a cute white fluffy Pierre.  I forget the other 3 dogs names. There was a real cool play session between a little Boston looking terrier and a mutt-a-doodle type of dog.  It was just as precious and the waning sunlight.
