After our very quiet, very restful night at Zig Zag Falls we head, early in the morning as usual, heading for Sandy, Oregon and the dog Park! I take a chance and mention it OUT LOUD. The boys know. Yes, they know, and they are excited. I sure hope the grocery store doesn’t show up first, because then they will think I am teasing. 😉
The grocery store does not show up. Walmart is nowhere to be found anywhere near where my GPS says it should be. There’s a big building that looks like it could have been a Walmart at one point, but … No worries. I plug the address to the dog park into the GPS and we’re off.
As the van gets moving again, the boys are beside themselves with excitement. It isn’t far to this park, located in a residential area, and as we pull up it doesn’t look like anyone else is around. It IS early. Come on guys, let’s get in there.
They do the usual; circling the perimeter, hiking their legs, doing their business. Before all that is done a lady pulls up with a beautiful, older yellow lab, and a large beagle. The beagle, Parker, is sooooo happy to be at the park. He and The Chiweenie Brothers get acquainted. Soon other dogs come to play. They all have a grand ‘ol time.
Try as they might, still there are those that do not feel it’s their responsibility to clean up after their dogs, but the towns and cities keep trying to get the message across.
Thankfully there are those who will pick up a few piles of other dogs’ poo when they are there. I do it as a way to say thanks to these cities and towns for these parks. Thank you Sandy, Oregon!
Love this information on spotting aggression:
They day is warming up. The Chiweenie Brothers have had a great time, and they are getting tired. Charlie looks for, and finds, a nice shady spot.
Thanks for stopping by 2Dogs! Hugs, Shawna
