Park Day

Share Button

parkday1We’re joining Gizmo & Finn’s Blogville Park Day celebration. Unfortunately, mom was going to take me to the park today for some pictures, but I sprained something on my run with dad this morning and I’m limping and now she says I have to ‘rest’. So we don’t have any NEW park pictures, just some old ones. This is our favorite park, the one we go to almost everyday because it is so close to our house. There are different trails we can walk or run on and there’s a stream that runs through it too. You would think that because both Maggie and I are ‘water’ dogs we would love going into the water, but for some reason, we don’t…we like to drink it if we get hot though.

We love the idea of Park Day and getting out and about with your pets. It fits perfectly with our FitDog Friday Blog Hop which is all about keeping your dog fit. After you’ve checked out all the Park Day entries, come back and check out our FitDog Friday Blog Hop.


This is me, SlimDoggy, in the car, waiting to go to the park.

Can’t you drive faster mom!


Here I am being very well behaved, but scouting for something to chase.

Here we are doing our favorite thing…sniffing around, seeing what critters were out last night.

It’s kind of muddy in these pictures which are from a few months ago after some rain. I love to run ahead of mom – she doesn’t usually let me get this far ahead.

 I come right back and sit like a gentleman (most of the time)

Here’s another trail we like to go on. This has lots of hills for us to climb.
Mom says I have to stay on leash though because those stinkin’ coyotes live nearby and I insist on chasing them.

Here’s the view back towards our house from the hill. The farm in the foreground grows red peppers. They may look & smell delish, but take my advice – don’t try and eat them – they are HOT! There’s a lot of what mom calls ‘marine layer’ from the ocean. It’s still pretty.

Well, that’s it – I hope you enjoyed our park pictures. When my limp gets better, I’ll have mom take me to another park and we will post those pictures too! This is fun because I get to go to different parks. Good idea Gizmo & Finn!

  3. Hope your limp gets better fast. I am a total baby, so I would be laying around looking for belly rubs and mom would tell me to toughen up! We love going to different places to walk too. Happy FitDog Friday and Park Day!

  4. Thanks for coming to Park Day today! Staying fit and visiting parks do go hand in paw don’t they…The more we get out and walk or hike the healthier we are…I see Jack & Maggie have good trail manners…It’s something I work on all the time so that I can feel confident when Giz is off lead. Hope Jack’s feeling better soon

    • He would drive himself…if only he could get a license 😉

  11. It looks like a great place to run and play. I’m sure Delilah would be over at the farm eating the peppers. 🙂

    Hope you are feeling better!!
