2010-11-14 Central Dog Park on Sunday Afternoon

It’s football Sunday afternoon with the Jets at 1:00 and the Giants at 4:00 so the dogs came to the dog park in spurts trying to fit their fun in between the games.  Scraps and Rags, being the Giant fans that they are, didn’t mind missing the Jet 1:00 game so they hung out for a few hours at the park between 12:30 and 3:00.

First we all checked out the small dog park which was bristling with action.  Scraps was enjoying his new rubber Chuck-it balls. The small dog park started out with a lot of dogs and then the pack thinned out.  We all headed to the big dog park next and hung out there for a while.  We completed the day back in the small dog park which only had a few dogs to begin with and then they came flooding in.

There were many dogs at the park on this beautiful fall day.  We met a lot of new ones which I am going to welcome to the blog in mass since there were so many.  Welcomed to the dog park blog are new dogs Penny, Maddie, Hooter, Bagel, Dradle, Figgy and Paco.  The sun was partially out so I took advantage of the sunlight when I could capture it.  There are lots of good photos so check them out.

2010-11-07 Central Dog Park on Sunday Afternoon

This was the weekend we changed the clocks back so it we knew it was going to get late early.  Scraps and Rags therefore headed to the dog park around 11:30 so not to experience that depressing early darkening that today brings.  In addition and more importantly, the Giants had the 4:00 p.m. game so we had to get our dog park fun in early.  Giants kicked some Seahawk butt, by the way, and spared their quarterback for some reason.

Once again, today was a beautiful fall day.  It was cool but the bright sun kept everyone warm and happy.  This brought the dogs out as the dog park was crowded, proving once again how successful this dog park is and what a great resource it is four us and our dogs.

Scraps and Rags first went to the small dog park as there were a dozen or so small ones running about.  Sebastian, Rory, GracieWhite and others played and wrestled and had a great time.  That Rory has a lot of energy.  We met a little dog named Gizmo, she was the only new dog’s name I recall so let’s welcome her to the blog and it’s Tag filter feature.

We then went to the big dog park and there was still a little color in the trees but the dogs were the real stars of the day.  Lots of cool new dogs in the big dog park, running in the sun and also wrestling.  We finished our visit at 1:20 and headed home.  Enjoy these sunny daytime photos as the week ahead only provides a closed dog park after the days early darkness.  Is Spring here yet?

2010-11-06 Central Dog Park on Saturday Afternoon

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.

2010-10-24 Central Dog Park on a Sunny Sunday Afternoon

It was a busy dog Sunday for Rags, and too a lesser extent Scraps, which culminated in a great day at Morris County’s dog park located at Central Park.  It is really beautiful hanging out in Morris County right now as the weather is just right and the leaves are in full color all over.

We started the day at agility class with Rags over at St. Huberts in Chatham.  The practice field there was in full living color and a delight to go to. Rags is beginning to learn how to work an agility course.  Right from dog class we stopped by Morristown where a parade of dogs in Halloween costumes was just getting underway.  This was a really nice dog event and I took lots of nice pictures of the dogs in costume, so check them out here.  From the parade we decided to go to the dog park with Scraps and Rags.

Central Park was bustling with some type of racing event at the park-side and the dog park was loaded with dogs.  What a great new park!  We arrived around 1:00 and the sunlight was good for photographs.  We ventured into the small dog park for quite a while as there was a lot of activity there.  Many white dogs.  We saw Ringo!  Lucky was a cute new brown dog (Dachshund Chihuahua mix) with long pointy ears.  Sebastian of course was there stirring up the pot and when Lewis and Clark arrived, it was just that much more doggy bedlam.  Too bad Scraps and Rags did partake in much of it.  Doesn’t matter, Rags was pooped from the previous activities and resting in the comfortable park was relaxing.  It gave me an opportunity to get pictures of the other dogs.

We then hung in the large park for a while.  There was also a lot of activity over there.  We did a lap, enjoyed the foliage, took lots of pictures and then headed home.  I ran out of battery power on the camera, so there was no use hanging out in the dog park any more.
