I did it!!! I managed to take all three dogs to the dog park (DP in doggie code) by myself tonight!!!
There are some DP habits we need to break, otherwise things went great! Things are different with three, especially when Coby wants to copy his brothers. Who knows why we started the habit of allowing Artie and Buddy to run to the gate or why we carried them back to the car afterwards. Either way, these things are difficult with three. So it’s time to break the habits!
The park is divided into two sides – small and large dog. Tonight, the large dog side had two dogs and three adults. The small dog side had three dogs and one adult – yes, that was us!! What a bummer! No one else showed up the whole time we were there (30-40 minutes). The temperature was a beautiful 63 and the sun was shining, but there was a lot of mud!!! At least my small dogs could walk on top of the wet ground rather than sink into it. Speaking of mud, one of the large dogs was rolling around in it. It was pretty funny and really messy! I sure hope they came prepared with a towel or something to clean him up! Oh the joys of a dog!
Below are some pics from tonight.
