One of the great things about our new neighborhood is the fact that we are so close to nearly everything we need. Their are Food Trucks on Wednesday night and Thursday afternoons. Farmers Markets and Swap Meets on the weekend. Starbucks, supermarkets and restaurants all within walking (and for sure, biking) distance! One of the best thing according to Lewis, is the Bark Park. A huge dog park that is fairly close to our house!
This guy hasn't really been to the dog park before, because it makes me feel incredibly anxious to let him off the leash to run around. Who knows what other dogs are going to do? What is he going to eat? Will he get loose? Needless to say, I need to get over it because he is a dog!! And he needs to have fun!
Here he is meeting my best friends dog, Henry, for the first time! Instant friends!
Look at those boys go! Haha! He had so much fun running like a crazy dog, chasing tennis balls, and chasing dogs smaller then him! Every time I see this photo it makes me laugh. I can totally make out a crazy eye and tongue going flying!
I was so proud of him that he was so good, and didnt get into any trouble and so proud of myself that I was able to let him get dirty and run free! It turned out to be the perfect morning to go! It was nice and warm outside, and there weren't too many dogs. He told me he had a ton of fun. The only thing he didn't like was the public water fountain bowl, he couldn't figure it out!
And he was so happy he found some mud to cool off in. I, on the other hand, was not so happy I had a muddy, slobbery dog on my hands but we headed straight home for a bath and a nap (him, not me!)
So far we are loving our new hood and all of the fun things we (both) get to do!
