This Sunday was a much nicer day than yesterday. It was sunnier, warmer and the snow was softer on the dogs’ paws. This brought out lots of dogs including my beloved Scraps and Rags. We first went to the small dog park where we played with many of the same dogs we saw yesterday.
I guess lots of the dogs have cabin fever and the warm sun got them excited. With the bright sun and the playful dogs I was able to get many good action photos. There was a lot of playing and running in the small dog park where about 10 dogs came out to play. Later in the large dog park, there were mainly big dogs and they were also playing hard.
New to the dog park blog were a pair of giant Irish Wolf Hounds Petey and Katie. There was also a brown bodied Pit-bull with a bright white face named Rocky who was getting picked on by the much smaller yet more tenacious Forrest, the Jack Russell. We’ll refer to Rocky as RockyBrown. Finally, in the small dog park we met a small Pit-bull like tan dog named Nigel. For some reason, Nigel always gets bit so his Mom was fearing Rags may attack him. It never happened.
Super Bowl Sunday at the dog park brought some of the nicest weather of the winter as the temperatures approached the 40s in strong sunlight. It was warm enough to soften the icy crust on the snow making a nice comfortable environment for the Scraps and Rags.
We all arrived around 11:45 and stayed for an hour and a half. The snow didn’t seem to bother the dog’s feet too much. Maybe the musher’s wax we used on their paws helped. We bought that years ago and haven’t tried it much, but figured we would give it a go today.
We spent about an hour in the small dog park as we watched Rory and Sebastian do what they do. Gracie White also found someone to play with and Scraps chased balls while Rags took it all in, rarely getting involved in a running scuffle. We did meet the cute little Enzo in the small dog park who enjoyed playing with Rory and looked like a lot of fun.
After the small dog park thinned out we went into the large dog park. The must have been 20 dog in there. In there I met Karachi, a big tan sleek dog by catching his name on his tag in a photo. We welcome Enzo and Karachi to the dog park blog.
The sun was out for the most part and it gave me a great opportunity to photograph the dogs. There were “snow” many good pictures, so check them out.
It was a nice Wednesday evening, warm but with a stiff breeze. Scraps and Rags rodes with us on the bikes over to the Central Park Dog Park. Spent most of the time in the large dog park and ended the night in the small dog park. I would welcome Max, the collie pup to the dog park and the blog except for the fact his father won’t let him play with the other dogs in the park. Nevetheless, hopefully we will see Max one day inside the fences and off leash.
As usual there were lots of dogs at the dog park and I think Scraps did really well with the variety of large dogs that came in his face tonight. In addition, Rags was also acting pretty good. A cute little dog we saw in the little dog park was Rufus, so I will welcome him to this blog. I also recall a cool looking bull Terrier named Samson, so I welcome him also. Unfortunately, the sun wasn’t on my side and my pictures aren’t great.
