Fun at the Dog Park!

There is a lovely park close to where I live, Marlay Park. I often walk there with the gang. Sometimes, I will meet friends or my brother and we will sit outside the cafe and have coffee and cake! They do a delicious vanilla latte there.

Marlay Park was one of the first parks in Ireland to open a dedicated dog park. Usually in parks here, dogs are allowed off the lead in any area of the park at certain times of the day. I prefer this method as poor Casper is too anxious and overwhelmed when faced with all the other dogs at the dog park.  It is better for me to wait until the allocated times and choose a quiet area to let him off.

However, since Pippa joined our gang, I have found that I frequent the dog park more often. It is great to have a secure area where she can have a good run and really stretch out her legs. I made a video of a great day that Pippa and I had at the dog park with a friend and her two Swiss Shepherds, Okami and Yuki.

Would love to hear what you think of dedicated dog parks? Are dogs allowed to be off-lead where you live? How do you ensure that your dogs get enough exercise?

Happy Easter to All!

This is the life! Some coffee and half an easter egg. Nom nom nom! The dogs will be getting an Easter treat too…but it won’t be coffee or chocolate. Come back tomorrow to find out what they got! What are your plans for the day?

Happy Easter Everyone!

And a gentle reminder not to share your chocolate with your dogs. Mine put on their most expressive begging eyes, but I stay firm. No chocolate for dogs in this house!

No Chocolate for Dogs!
