HI! It’s Poppy here! Sabrina finally let me take over her blog for a day – I think she just got tired of me bugging her.
I wanted to tell you all about the dog park and how much FUN it is! Sabrina and I went a few times while there was still snow on the ground. But it was always too cold to really understand what the fuss was about.
Well just about overnight, the weather has gotten warm and all the snow has melted. Seriously! Just last weekend it was too cold to do anything more than run out for a quick pee, anything else and my toes would freeze.
So on Friday when we headed out I wasn’t too excited, even if the air was warm. The first thing I noticed was the mud. It made the ground slippery, just like the snow but without any of the cold.
(Mum’s note, I’ve posted the pictures fairly small to ensure easy page loading, click on the pictures to biggify and soak in the cuteness.)
Grass feels so nice on my feet and it gives me so much traction so I can run. I run so fast, you can barely even see me.
And then there were all the lakes. Mum says the ground is still frozen so the water hasn’t had a chance to be absorbed. Blah, blah, blah, WHATEVER! Lakes are almost as much fun as the grass.
Here’s me looking all regal posing with a tree. The water was nice and warm – not as warm as when I have a bath, but way more fun!
It didn’t take long before I started splashing around. Sabrina, the priss didn’t want to get her delicate paws wet.She misses out on so much fun! Here she is thinking about going in but still acting like a scaredy-pug.
But enough about her, I’m here to talk about MY dog park fun! Here’s the best part about going to the dog park…….. it’s chalk full of stuff to chew on and eat! Nothing makes me more happy than finding stuff to eat!
There’s bits of wood………….
……………and pine cones……………
Oh yea, and new friends – they are another great reason to go to the dog park. I made lots of new friends but me and this guy hit it off right away.
Mum says that once the weather gets warmer – even warmer than now – the rescue’s Meet-Up group will start meeting for outdoor walks. Imagine a big pack of Pugs and all their friends going for a
walk run together! I can’t wait! In the meantime I’ll have to settle with making my own friends. Maybe next time I’ll see you at the park!
