So, yesterday evening we loaded up in the car and took off. I wasn't really sure what to expect, and I was pleasantly surprised! There is both a small dog side, as well as a large dog side. We started on the small dog side of the park, and Louis immediately posed for a picture with the fire hydrant:
Next he made friends with a Boston Terrier. There was also a Cairn Terrier there, but he wouldn't stay still long enough for a photo :)
After spending about 20 minutes on the small pup side, Louis was ready to head over to the large dog side. He began pacing along the fence line and whining. So, I gave him a stern talking to about making sure he didn't get himself trampled on...and I let him through the gate.
Of course, the first dog Louis decides to befriend is a St. Bernard. The largest dog there!
There were quite a few large dogs, and Louis ran around with them for a few minutes. He did a great job of keeping up, and all of the large dogs were very kind to him :) There was a Blood Hound that took a great interest in Louis. They ran back and forth and played tag with each other. It was absolutely adorable.
Needless to say, the dog park will become a part of our regular routine moving forward :)
Tonight, weather permitting, Louis and MK's dog "h" have a play date scheduled. Believe it or not, they have NEVER MET :-o "h" is coming to Louis' first birthday party on August 7, so we want to be sure they are properly acquainted before then.
Hope your Tuesday is sunnier than mine! I know we need this rain, but overcast skies are BLAH :(
