I did it! I walked on the gigantic 3-foot ramp! BOL! And I'm still in one piece! Cosmo and the kitties said they didn't understand what my problem was.
Anyway, while Dad was out early running an errand, I woke Mom up from downstairs with my dreaming. It was a pitiful cry that echoed throughout the house. It has been described by Dad as the sound of a wounded bear!
Lately, Mom has not been going on walks with me and my Dad so that she can keep Cosmo company, but today she went with us and decided to bring the camera. I got so excited I was trying to jump on her on the way to the dog park.
When the homes in our development were built in 1996, there was some leftover land at the end of a street about four blocks away. A group of the dog-loving homeowners (including my parents) got together with the City to discuss turning it into a dog park so they agreed to do so on a trial basis and used leftover materials and put up a gate, but there was no water. The homeowners did volunteer work to maintain the dog park.
A couple of years ago, they finally set up a budget for the park, and now it has water, some turf, and nicer benches than what they had before, so it's very convenient and I get to go there every day. Cosmo goes when it's not too hot or when he's up for it, which isn't that often nowadays.
There is also a community park across from the dog park that was built along with the homes, and there's a tennis court there. That's how I got my collection of tennis balls, which I can always smell in a shrub a mile away! Sometimes we bag them up and drop them off at the dog park, but anytime I bring one home when I go walking with just my Dad, the first thing I do when I get home is look for my Mom so I can show her, but I don't let her have it!
That was my Sunday!
Wowza, how fun to have your own park! Congrats on using the ramp - you are brave!
Thanks, Rocky! I love seeing alot of people at the park!
Yep, I'm a brave boy now.
