The No-Dog, Dog Park Xmas Party

One of the great things about the dog park I attend regularly is how close-knit it is.  They have an annual Christmas party where we can all get together and have lots of food and a few wobbly pops without our dogs.  It’s actually really fun to see how people look normally, as opposed to bundled up, covered in mud, and having just rolled out of bed.  Good thing we all had nametags that also had our dogs names on them, otherwise we would have had no idea whom anyone was!   Local politician Olivia Chow also attended, and it was great fun getting to know her.

The board members of the park planned a great party, complete with pot luck food items, music, and raffle prizes!  The raffle raised money for our friend and dog park regular, Mario, who passed away last year.  We are hoping to raise enough money for a memorial picnic table to be added to the park in his name.  Mike and I were lucky enough to win a fabulous prize, consisting 3 Kong squeaky tennis balls, as well as a Christmas tree squeaky toy.   He. Loves. It.

And nope…that is NOT fake snow surrounding the dog and the toy, but the toy’s guts.  He has had it for about 1 week now, and it has thoroughly been…enjoyed.


Holy Cuteness!

A Cat in the Dog Park?!

So, I understand that people love their cats.  I am one of them myself, having loved and lost a dear little friend.  I also realize that it’s good for cats to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.  What I do not understand, however, is just why someone would bring their cat to the dog park, only to yell at every dog that showed interest?!  Well, Tim did a little more than show interest actually.  He barked, and barked, and barked.  And the woman was none to impressed.  But that goes back to my point…who brings a cat to the dog park!?
