Dog Park Day!

Hi everyone!

We went to the off leash park today. We all had a great time. Hubby's mom called and said she was going and would we like to come too..well of course! It was a gorgeous sunny day here in Western Washington, clear and cold. The park was full of dogs and their people. What fun!

We also had a lovely view of Mount Rainier with it's fresh ice cap. We are really blessed to have this spectacular mountain nearby. It dominates the view, sometimes it is very small in the distance but at other vantage points it looks huge. I am sure this is a trick of nature, but it is interesting to see.

Look at this cute little corgi puppy, so adorable! He is four months old and he was fast! That's why he's a bit blurry.

I'm not sure what type of dog this is, just a cutie!

Here's the two Ollie's. You can see our pug, Ollie in the front and then the tiny yorkie behind the chihuahua was named Ollie too. I would call our Ollie and this little guy would come right to me.

Here's Annie, Mom's westie. I love her pink ears. I tried to get some pictures of her other dog, Archie but he's very social and was always on the move.

Here are Cesar and Ivan, a pair of puggie boys. Their mom was very nice.

Here's Mr. Photogenic! That Ollie sure takes a nice picture. :o) I love his expression in the second picture, so cute!

And here's the girls! Charlie and Honey are so cute together.

After the dog park, hubby and I went for long overdue haircuts. Sorry, no pctures of us, the camera batteries died at the park. We both have chilly necks, but feel much better with our new do's. We also went out for fish and chips, yummy!! Now we are back home all snuggled with puppies on our laps. I am working on crocheting a sweater for me! More details to follow!

Take care everyone!


  1. You have a beautiful dog park. We love our park, but the weekends are always a toss-up ... lots of dogs that don't get out often enough and owners who are "neophytes" ... today there was a huge FIGHT with horrible noise and lots of rolling around. Everyone was shook up. Thank goodness that kind of behavior almost never happens during the weekdays when there are fewer dogs and people.

  2. What a FUN day you had! Dog park, hair cuts, fish & chips, and a relaxing night at home!! Does it get any better than that? :)

  3. That Ollie has the most beautiful face! I've wanted to get a black pug for quite some time, but alas, the hubby says that 2 dogs are enough! I love coming here and being able to get my dog fix for the day!

  4. Hi! I am glad you had fun and that it was a sunny day! I also need a hair cut, desperately! hubby gets one every 2 weeks and I get one twice a year. I think it should be all the way around...

  5. Awww, look at all the cute doggies! Thanks for visiting my blog today. Come back any time!

  6. That looks like a very fun and exhilarating outing you had! And what a view. I wish we had mountains in my state.

  7. What a great time you must have had. It looks like so much fun.

  10. What a beautiful day you had at the park! The mountain is gorgeous! Catch you another day.

  11. Hi Puglette, thank you for visiting my new site. I love new friends! Happy to meet you! You and your family are so adorable and look so happy. You have such fun things to do- like go to a park. How fun that must be!
    Thank you again for saying hi!

  12. Hi Puglette! We have been gone for a while, and we just came to catch up on your blog. Now we have lots to say!
    1) I left an award for you on my blog yesterday.
    2) Happy belated birthday to Honey!
    3) LOVE the picture of Charlie at agility!! My mom wants me to try agility. How old was Charlie when she started?
    4) My mom has been searching all over Etsy for a water bottle cozy for the new SIGG bottle she got for Christmas, and couldn't find one she liked. Then she saw yours that you made!! Have you considered selling those?
    Ok, think that is it for now. :) Hope you are having a great week!
    Love Clover xo
