Last weekend DH and i took Belvie to the dog park. I've been trying to take him at least once every weekend to socialize him with other dogs. He grew up with a cat, so he plays like a cat. He loves to play with other dogs, but can be a little unsure about the process... I took him to the park on friday and it was the first time that he *really* played with the dogs. Granted they were small dogs (that's all that were there that day)but i think it really boosted his confidence because the next day he played with all the dogs in the park!

I took some pictures on saturday. He had a blast!!

Just arriving:


Playing with the doberman.. He had a blast with her!

Cooling off


He loved playing with the boxer- DH's sister has a boxer who Belvie LOVES playing with, but the boxer is very out of shape. Belvie was very suprised to see a boxer that can run faster then him!

Drinking from the mudpuddle dispite have fresh water...




And the dog that cleared everyone out...

As soon as the owner showed up with that dog and another about 75% of the people left. I've never seen that guy before, so i had no idea his dogs were aggressive... The both of them were snarling every time a dog got close.

It was still a great day at the park though!

I'm jealous that your dog park has actual grass. None of ours in NYC do. How can the dog park afford to maintain that grass with so many dogs on it?

I'm a city boy. Be gentle.

Guess NYC is just too cheap :D sorry couldn't resist that since you said to "be gentle"! All of the ones in Houston have grass...so guess you get to be jealous some more. ;) Seriously, they maintain the one I go to very well. Most of the people clean up after their dogs so I guess that helps. And grass here withstands most things...it's grown to be tough...like Texas.

Hush my mouth. Learn something new every day. You got grass. I got gravel. Jealous. Little Benji likes grass better than gravel. :(

It's a BREC (The Recreation & Park Commission for the Parish of East Baton Rouge) dog park. Most of the BREC parks are fairly well maintained and the dog park is closer to the suburbs of Baton Rouge so it is better maintained (for the most part at least). People are pretty good about picking up after themselves. I love been close to a park like that! THere is one closer to my house.... but it's not so good or popular! I'd rather take the extra 10 min. and go to a place where other dogs go.

It's hard to kill the grass here in louisiana too :)
