I wanna take you to the dog park, dog park, dog park!

It’s a gorgeous day outside, so we decided to brave the apartment complex dog park (more of a run, really) even though it is super muddy and gross. (Apologies for the not-great photos throughout this post. My phone camera can only do so much with a wriggling puppy.)

Muddy, messy dog run

The minute we let Coraline off the leash, she took off running laps around the area, making sure to run right through the middle of the disgusting, stinky mud pit near the entry gate every time. Bits of mud were flying up everywhere, but it did not seem to bother her in the least. She mercifully did not manage to jump up on either of us.

First dog run visit of the season

There was, of course, all kinds of other fun to be had: poo to be smelled and shooed away from, leaves stuck in the mud to try to pull free, soggy limp sticks to try to shake, and many many spots to mark.

Beautiful sky

It’s so nice out! It feels like a reward for having made it through all the dismal days of winter.

The apartment dog run is a bit of a mess

Even before we got back to our apartment, it was clear that it was bath time.

 

We are not amused

While water is one of our favorite things, we do not like it when it is on our face.

Apres bath

We will put up with a good toweling off after bath, though, when it comes with kisses. Now she is all snuggled up under the exploding TARDIS blanket, happily worn out and ready to nap until dinner time. We are all very much looking forward to being able to go to the future Mount Pleasant Dog Park when it opens later this year!

I wanna take you to the dog park! dog park! dog park!

This afternoon we took Coraline to the dog park and I managed to remember to bring my camera. We went to the small dog area first, and played with the dog and grandson of one of my Leadership Canton classmates and some Dachshunds. Then we moved to the big dog area so she could do some serious running. She’s creeping up on 20 pounds, so we feel like it’s okay for her to be in either area right now. Most of small dog area dogs don’t seem to have enough energy to run with her like she wants to, and she’s so fast that she leaves them in the dust. The big dogs are better at keeping pace with her.

There were plenty of other dogs there, and she got to run around like crazygonuts for close to an hour.

I love this next one, because she looks like she’s doing some kind of b-boy move:

Here she looks like she’s been caught doing something, though she wasn’t:

Taking a moment to cool off:

There were several other puppies around her age there today. Leading the pack:

This Doberman puppy was beautiful! Just a little younger than Coraline, and great at playing chase:

It was super fun! We had to carry her out when we left because she was so tuckered.
