I didn't think it would happen, after all, mom has said we could go before and we didn't. This time, it was Labor Day and both mom and dad had off. Mom went out to the city web site and checked what time the park would be open. She found out that we needed to bring our own drinking water. She and dad went to Petsmart on Saturday and got some Mutt Mitts (to pick up poop) in case the park was out. She got a water bottle holder with cup at the bottom. I have my own bark park bag (an old Snoopy one mom had laying around). She put everything into the bag and added Mr. Ring and the Gooberlicious snacks for good measure.
This first picture is of me in the back seat on the way to the Bark Park.
The park was muddy in places because we have had so much rain and the sprinklers are set to water overnight also. We walked a little bit with my leash on as mom & dad didn't know how I would act. Finally dad took the leash off.
Dad was very nervous and made me be slightly defensive when doggies got too near me. It was still OK though. I met a brown dog (don't know kind) named Baxter that kept wanting to jump on me even though I told him that I'm NOT that kind of dog! I met a beautiful lady greyhound name Sylvia. She was very nice to me. I met another couple of little Westie dogs but didn't catch their names. Dad threw Mr. Ring for me several times. Mom tried to get me to drink some water but I didn't want to.
It was cool and cloudyish but we stayed about 45 minutes. On the way home, we stopped by a Sonic Drive In (burger type place) and mom and dad got limeades. I didn't want anything. When we got home, all of us were tired. Mom fixed breakfast and I had some egg and toast. Both mom and dad looked like they would be ready for a snooze any minute. I am tired too. Yesterday I supervised dad in the yard and my arthritis was bothering me last night. Mom gave me some aspirin in a hot dog piece. I think I am going to need one of those tonight also. Mom and dad agree that we are going to go again. Everyone had a good time!
