A Dog Park Day

FINALLY . . . Northern California received cooler temperatures and off we went to the Dog Park.
Ollie insisted on helping Dad drive, while I sat 
politely on Mom's lap.

Here we are, raring to go . . .
Surprisingly, the small dog section was practically deserted.
There was a Maltese with pink bows leaving as we arrived. Ollie really gave her the once over. He soon found another female. Fickle Ollie.  Here she is, kissing up to him.  (Nice butt shot of that Pug, Mom)


Since I'm a little rambunctious and very intimidating to other well-behaved dogs, I'm under the close supervision of Dad when we're in the park.


As we were ready to leave, we heard a cacophony of shrill snarling and growling.  Lo and behold, there was a shaved version of a mini-me who was barking his head off at the people and dogs walking by.  Not to be outdone, I joined in with my own bellowing and the entire park was treated to a clamoring Eskie Barkfest.   Mom managed to get a picture of the Eskie. Notice how he's eying her suspiciously.  
That's MY look.

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

We LOVE Park trips! Got the opportunity to take ALL of our visitors to my favorite Park while they were here...it was lots of fun and a barking good time.

My entire family sends wishes for a very happy anniversary to your mom and dad. They are very special people who deserve many many more years of wonderful adventures together. BTW how many is 36 in dog years? :)

Hope you all got cake and ice cream to celebrate mom and dad's special day! Hasn't the weather been perfect for trips to the Park?

You are right, Cappy, there ISN'T anything prettier than an Eskie smile!

The hu-dad says that life at Chez Herd IS a dog park.

Cappy, you are just so cute! I'm sorry we've been tardy from the blogging world - we have really missed you! Please know you've been in our thoughts!

Park trips are so much fun, oh, and a happy anniversary to mom and dad! Good for you!

Love,
Prinnie, Digby and Bratka

Sorry to hear warm weather is back amongst you. Hope you had a pleasant weekend and got to do fun stuff despite the heat. Do the leaves change colors by where you live?

Cappy, at least your brother is cute! My big blockhead of a brother is so graceless and such a barbarian! He has lived here a little over 7 months now and he still needs me to supervise him on EVERYTHING! But I guess maybe with a little more work, he might be ok to play with.

Thanks for the very nice words you left for us. I think Cappy is the perfect name for you...you are for sure not a "Snowball" and "Quirky" would be strange if your mom had to call you at the park. Hope you had a great weekend!
