A Trip to the Dog Park

Last Saturday was a beautiful day, so we decided to pick up the boys and take Dakota to the dog park. It's very important that puppies be socialized and what better place to meet other dogs.

When we arrived, it was quite muddy. We picked our way through the park to the west end where it was relatively dry.

Here is hubby, Brandon and Jordan heading west with Dakota. There weren't many dogs in that area, but as soon as they realized a puppy was present, they made their way to us. There were two dogs there that really wanted to play with Dakota, but he was very leery of them, as they were really hyper dogs. Above, one of them is chasing Dakota. Notice his tail is between his legs. However, it wasn't long before he made friends with a lab/border collie mix and she was ready and able to protect him. With a snarl, she sent the other dogs packing when they bothered him. Dakota and her had quite a time just getting to know each other.

It was a pleasant time for all of us and we plan to take Dakota back to the dog park soon. In the meantime he's made friends with a mastiff who walks by here all the time. That dog is huge, but they like each other and always seem to enjoy each other's company.

I hope you enjoyed coming along to the dog park. ~Blessings, Mary~

  3. That's the best thing for dogs, helps them socialise with other dogs doens't it? I've been meaning to take our dog to a dog park but there isn't one around here unfortunatley.

  11. Good Morning Mary,
    I enjoyed going to the dog Park with you and watching Dakota mingle with the other dogs. We don't have a Dog Park here where I live. Most dogs just run wild around here. They do have a Dog ordinace tho. But it's the strays you have to watch out for and be careful because some of them are viscious looking. I am fixing to take our youngest daughter to see an oral surgeonhere in a bit. She is going to have to have a root canal. Wegot a bit of rain this morning and it has cleared out. The temperarures are to be about 15 to 20 degrees cooler than they were yesteday. It got up to 74 degrees yesterday adn was really nice outside. Take care my friend and have a great day. May GOD BLesss you adn yours.
    Love,
    Karen H.
