Best dressed at the dog park

I went to the dog park for the very first time, and my doG! It was so much fun! Unfortunately, it was a cooler day and I had to wear my nifty sweater...strange that I was the only dog there in clothing! I wish my adult fur would come in so I wouldn't shiver every time I go outside when it is cool out.

I was the smallest one there, and the youngest...which meant that I was a target. But, don't worry - I can totally hold my own with the big guys. In fact, I think I prefer large breeds. We sniffed, and played and ran - and I went home nice and tired and happy.

After my intimate conversation with the lab above, I went over to hang out with a pack by the park's only bench. Actually, we were hanging around there because the pretty female Rotti was in heat. (Mama was a little upset that her humans would bring a dog in heat to a dog park.)

The Corgi was pretty darn awesome, and I hung out with him for most of the time...at least I think he was a he! He had a lot of fur and needed some serious grooming. I tried to watch him take a leak so I could tell for sure, but he must have an iron bladder!

This sounds like a VERY interesting day at the dog park! I think my mom would have been a bit miffled about the female in heat too!

Love ya lots,

Hey Patches,
You look great in your sweater, and I am glad you had fun in the dog park!
Seriously though, why would someone bring a dog in heat to a dog park?
Love Clover xo

Patches, That lab kind of looks like me! I would like you too if I met you in my dog park. I'm pretty weird with the big guys, but I really love all the little doggies.

You look so cute in your sweater. We've never been to a dog park but I think we would like to.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

What an irresponsible owner, bringing a dog in heat to the park. Doesn't she know there's too many dogs in shelters as it is?! Grrr...

I think you look very cute in your sweater, Patches! And I wish we had some of your cooler weather down here :)

I wish I was brave enough to go to the dog park! Mama took me to the park by our old home so we could meet up with old friends. We walk around the fields, but when we get within 50 yards of the fenced in dog run, I plant myself down and make mama make me go further ... even if the dog run is empty!

I enjoyed your blog! Hope to see you at mine soon!

Woofwoo! You look sharp in your sweater. I dunno about that dog in heat though. I suppose she's got to go somewhere. As for the heat, maybe she was a show dog and they were going to have her make babies with some lucky dog!

You're KILLIN' me with your dogpark description. You were obviously the best-dressed doggie there, but it sounds like the Corgi had on the thickest coat.

Goob love,
