Adventures at the Dog Park

Good Dog!

Having a car has dramatically increased our dog's quality of life - Luna loves the freedom of running around off leash at the dog park. So many dogs to meet, so many trails to explore and so many things to smell; I think she thinks it is more like dog heaven then a mere park!

I have to admit that while enjoying the sun, the silence of trees away from the roads, the gentle breeze and the sounds of the river I felt more relaxed than I have for a long time. I've been looking for a place like this to get away to, away from the noise and bustle of everyday city life. It's great that this is close and the dog can come too!

What a great picture. The floppy tongue really makes it so! :)

It is an astonishing amount of fun. And I am still very proud of our dog - we were hesitant at first, but she validated our faith that she wouldn't run off and makes it a great time.

Thanks Brett - I rather like it myself too! And yes, we all had so much fun! And there are even trails for running and biking and stuff!

the dog park at Terwilligar in my opinion fully justifies my entire City tax bill. Hope it doesn't change too much over the next year.

Wow - now that's saying a lot! I really like our dog park too (in Riverview by the Valley Zoo). I like that the river is there, but I am not a big fan of wet dog smell... might be a bit of a conflict there!

I love the dog park. Laurier is the best one.

Will have to check out both Laurier and Terwilligar! I am fairly impressed with our dog park.
