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?
I don’t even know if I have any readers left at this stage! My year has been very busy and unfortunately, Fluffy Tufts had to take a back seat. I will have a bit more time in the new year, so I really hope I can update you all and start sharing our adventures on a more regular basis!
Things to look out for: a new addition to the gang, some exciting news for me and Mr Fluffytufts, extremely cute dog trick tutorials and lots more…
The blog has been a little quiet over the last several weeks. I guess sometimes life places too many demands on us and this means that something has got to go on the back burner! I have missed posting here, reading your comments and visiting your blogs. Thankfully, things have calmed down a little and I look forward to sharing more photos, adventures, videos, recipes etc with you all!
New Year’s Day 2013 marked the one-year anniversary of the Fluffy Tufts blog! It has been an interesting year with many changes, some good (A New Home and the arrival of Venus) and some not so good (the passing of our beloved Munchy). A number of you have been following us right from the beginning and many others have joined in along the way. I would like to thank each and every one of our followers, as without you all, there would be no reason or purpose in continuing.
Finally, I would just like to let you all know that we now have a Facebook page. The regular posts will resume here on the blog, so if you don’t have Facebook, don’t worry! The Facebook page will highlight some of the popular posts from the archives, animal cuteness from the internet and BONUS photos/info from the Fluffy Tufts gang!
