A (muddy) visit to the dog park

Do you notice a theme going on here ? My last post was about Henry deciding to play in the mud and getting his first bath !!! Today mom and dad took us to the state park and it was like one big mud pit ! We live in Colorado, where it is normally pretty snowy this time of year. The last week the weather has been unseasonably warm in the 50's and 60's. All our snow is melting away and we have lots of mud and puddles. I LOVE mud and puddles but mom and dad don't share my excitement for it.

We all headed out around noon. This is a state park so there are no fences. Mom and Dad don't quite trust Hannah and Henry just yet so decided to keep them safe and sound on their leashes. They said we would see how they do at the fenced in dog park.

I can't remember the last time I had this much fun ! There is just something about the wide open space to run. I have a backyard, but it just isn't the same as exploring someplace new !

I ran and played with the other dogs along the path like I was a young pup again.  I really wish Henry and Hannah could have run along side of me so I could show them how it's really done but I don't want to lose my brother or sister !

Mom and Dad kept laughing at me because I would find every muddy tennis ball along the path. All the other dogs would drop them when they got too muddy.  A tennis ball is a tennis ball to me - muddy or not !! I wasn't letting go !!

Dad was working on leash manners with Henry and Hannah along the way. To get a treat they both had to sit and be patient. Hannah does well but Henry has a long way to go still !!

By the time we left, we were all exhausted ! That was enough exercise for me ! When we got home it was time for baths and rest time. I don't think I wanted to move for the rest of the day I was so tired !!
