A Day at the Dog Park.

After Church on Sunday, it was such a beautiful day that one of my friends suggested we go to the dog park. Well my girls have never been to a dog park so I thought how cool it would be for them to socialize with other dogs. After all, dogs are pack animals and my dogs love each other and some of my friends dogs. We arrived at the park and they had an area for swimming...well I knew better than to head in that direction....I know how they react to the beach. Not very pleasant for either of us as they hate the water and sand. Next was the BIG DOG area....I could just hear the dogs barking to each other..."snacks being served today??? goodie!!!" Isabella only weighs 2.5 pounds. They did have a separate area for small dogs. It was double gated although mine could scoot under it. Inside the area were lots of tennis balls, Frisbees, fresh water and shade. What a wonderful place for pups to romp and sniff. There were squirrels in every tree to chase and bark and lots of room for running. Well I have Chihuahua's...they ran the fence and barked at anything that moved. One Gentleman did not even bother to bring his dog into the area. There were several different kinds of small dogs there, most with easy going personalities and Isabella and India did finally warm up and make some new friends. After a while we left and went to the Happy Pig Restruant downtown. It is dog friendly with the best BBQ. There were dog treats and water for the four legged visitors at the front door. A good time was had by all.
