After days of being cooped up in the house cause of the mud & rain, Mommy decided to take us to the park. YIPPEE! We went to Bullis Park cause it's close to the house. It's not a dog park, its for humans but its the only one close by. Mommy doesn't know if San Antonio has dog parks so if my pals Doodle or Austin read this, let us know if you know of any dog parks. Any-who, Mommy put my pink 'harny' on me & put Rinky's collar on, grabbed our leashes & off we went!
There were alot of little human pups playing on the playground but the rest of the park was empty so Mommy decided we'd go on the nature trail. It was fun...lots of interesting smells. Mommy let us off our leashes cause noone was around & she trusts us to stay close. Plus Rinky hates being leashed & was being stubborn. As soon as the leash came off she was just fine. I huffed & puffed my way up the trail and kept up with Mommy. We had to keep stopping to wait for Rinky to catch up. She did pretty good keeping up with us considering she's ancient! She actually trotted most of the way!
When we got to the soccer field Wrinkles wanted to go sniffin' so Mommy sat & watched us as we sniffed the field.
After about an hour at the park it was time to go. On the way back to the car, Rinky kept stopping to lick her leg. Mommy & me went back to check on her & low & behold, Wrinkles had sprung a leak!
Mommy says it's a Sharpei thing. Something about Rinky's skin having alot of fluid so her legs sometimes leak. Nothing to worry about. She just leaks clear fluid but Mommy plugs up her leaks with bandages. Rinky will have to explain it in her diary. All I know is that her back legs leak sometimes. Well that's all for now. Bark at ya'll later!
Hi Ebony, there's a few dog parks in San Antonio. One's on the NE side--McAllister Park. Here's the lowdown on it:
McAllister Park. 1 1/2 acre leash-free dog park, dog water fountain, basic agility course, short loop trail, NO RESTROOMS at the moment. Location: Starcrest & Buckhorn (park's internal name for road). Directions: Take southern (sports complex, on airport side) entrance, drive 1 mile, on left-hand side park at first parking lot, walk 300 yards along gravel trail (not visable from parking lot but you will see it 100 yards after starting the trail) (Thank you Aaryn Baltutis)
Pearsall Park Dog Area. San Antonio's Leash-free dog park. Location: 4700 Old Pearsall Rd.
I've never heard of Pei skin leaking??!! Why does it do that??
Well Ebony ...I hope your mom did not take you out in that Halloween outfit... (you do look mighty cute). It's nice that you finally got out...I love to walk in the rain but in So Ca rain is not here too often...
I do like your scarfs....
Sounds GREAT... cept for Wrinky leaking.... wondering id a tiny spot of baby oil rubbed in would ease the skin a little?
