the dog park

We’ve been wanting to take Maisy to the new dog park that opened close by, but we’ve been a little nervous about how she would treat the other dogs.  We figured a morning during spring break would be a good time since there wouldn’t be too many people out on a weekday morning.  There were only three other dogs there, but it only took about ten seconds for her to growl and snap at one of the dogs.  We decided to go into the small dog area since no one was in there.  It still gave her an area bigger than our back yard to run around in for a little while.

She was only able to visit with the other dogs through the fence, but she decided she’d rather run.  She’s a really good runner.

Mason loves her and takes care of her more than anyone else.  After he caught her we figured we might as well take her home before another dog showed up in the small area.

I’m linking up with you capture where the theme is outdoors.

  7. That's funny, when we had a Jack Russell we used to have to "catch" him too. He could even wiggle out of his leash and run away!

  17. How fun- we love riding our bikes to the dog park as a family & then letting our dog run like mad when we close that gate. He feels so free. He always sleeps really well after that. I love that you got your boys in the shots too- what handsome young men.
