I'm not a big fan of dog parks because I can't be certain that the dogs there have been properly vaccinated and I don't know if they're aggressive or not. All it takes is one distracted owner and chaos can ensue. Just in case you think I'm an alarmist, the worst happened to a girl I used to work with.
She took her tiny, aging Chihuahua to the dog park and in a split second, a large dog lunged at her dog's neck and killed her. I know, worst case scenario but I would rather not take my chances.
The weather was so beautiful the other day that I decided to take Sophie and Dino to the dog park in the middle of the day. I would have taken Millie, too, but I didn't want to leave Maddie home alone.
We got there and we were the only ones at the park. It was perfect! The two of them could run around and play and I didn't have to worry. I even emptied out the water dishes and gave them fresh water.
Here's a snippet of our time there. Listen to how Sophie's voice is HUGE compared to her little body and how Dino sounds like a little old man.
