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.
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.
Scraps and Rags arrived late on a cool “That G-d It’s Friday” missing all the good sunlight. What we missed in sun and we gained in fun as lots of dogs were there when we arrived. It was cool and they were playful. New to us and the blog were three dogs tonight including Mr. Strudel who Scraps had a thing for which was good to see, Sunny and Bella the wildly striped dog.
We all have to get our sleep as the opening of the new Morris County Central Park Dog Park opens tomorrow. I personally don’t like the name of it, I think it should be called Dog Park central. Nevertheless, the four of us intend on riding our bikes over there tomorrow morning at 10:00 to celebrate the opening. It should be a good time. That is one big dog park!
