2010-09-11 Central Dog Park on a Saturday Morning

Before biking to the Morris Plains Farmers Market, Scraps and Rags joined us for an enjoyable hour or so at Central Dog Park.  There weren’t any dogs in the small dog park when we arrived at 10:40 a.m. so we did a lap around the big dog park and then hung around the center area of the big dog park watching shepherds and hounds play on the rolling waves of grass.  We also saw this really cool looking dog who was a little bigger than Scraps called Tallulah who wore a bell around her neck, so she is now known and welcomed as TallulahBelle to this blog.  Finally we heard an owner referring to his dog as Scrappy, so that may be the other Scraps that lurks around this neck of the woods.

At 11:30  we went to the small dog park to throw a ball around with Scraps.  This is where we met Baci, a really cute brown toy poodle weighing in at 6 pounds.  Baci loved to run after and jump for his tennis ball.

Since the sun was still rising over the eastern sky when we got there I was able to get lots of pictures of dogs with plenty of light in their faces.  This helped capturing the expressions of the dogs especially with some of the darker dogs.  This is quite a comparison to the dark photos I was stuck with from last night‘s trip to both the Morris County and Denville dog parks.
