2010-08-28 – Saturday in Dog Park

It was a gorgeous Saturday in late August so we decided to bike ride with Scraps and Rags over to the Central Dog Park after breakfast and then head to the Morris Plains farmers market thereafter.  It was a great plan and well executed.  When we got to the dog park we saw a few of our friends from the Denville Dog Park including the poodles, Lily, Ollie and Grace.  Phoebe was also there for a little while.

There were 5 or 6 small dogs that we hung out with including Henry and Hamlet.  We also saw Ringo for the first time at the dog park.  It was nice that we were able to enjoy the tent and chairs staged for tomorrows Dinner With Your Dogs fund raiser.  We all look forward to that event as the weather is looking to be mighty fine for that one.

2010-08-26 – Bark-Hopping ‘Round Town

A dog agility trial for Scraps the Dog over the previous weekend with some wet weather has meant we haven’t been to the dog park for the past 6 days.  In addition, Scraps and Rags haven’t been to the Denville Dog Park since August 13, so I felt obliged to head on over to Zeek Road and see if we could catch up to a few friends from Denville.

I passed the Central Dog Park on the way over to Denville and there was a lot of excitement there.  Nevertheless, I continued to the Denville Dog Park, it has better sunlight for pictures anyway.  I was there just after five, which is typically too early for most dogs, and only Isabelle and Roxy were there.  Later on a new dog to the park and blog showed up named Bruno.  Scraps and Rags got along well with everyone.

We stayed, played, did a little agility took a few photos and let’s not forget the simultaneous poops.  We all then “bark-hopped” on over to Central Park Dog Park.  The place was buzzing with excitement.  A good mix of 10-15 small dogs made it a lot of fun when we got there.  Other Denville Dog Park turn-coats we found lurking around there were Phoebe and Chester.  There were way too many dogs to try to know names, but one I recall is Lexi the super tiny, soft brown hot-dog.

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.

2010-08-02 Denville Dog Park before sunset

It was a nice day when Scraps and Rags arrived a bit earlier than usual to enjoy the time before sunset.  New to us and the blog was Hitchhiker, a light tan lab.

Scraps and Rags played ball in the small dog park before joining the big boys, so you will have to wade through a lot of shots of Scraps and Rags in today’s Picasa Web album before getting to all the other dogs.  You need not to fret, I got a lot of good shots of every one.
