So I know ya'll(yeah Im southern so what) probably take your pooches to the park, but what about a dog park?? There is a huge one here in Jacksonville, behind the Dave and Busters. I took Maggie there yesterday, and she had a blast. I practically had to drag her from there. She didnt want to leave. And the way the park is set up, is there a little area, for small dogs. A medium sized for well, medium doggies. And then there is a huge area for dogs of all sizes, a agility course, and a picnic area the dogs can be with you also. Theres also some nature trails, but I have yet to explore them. You can always tell when a new dog arrives, because the dog shows up like 5 minutes before the owners do. That is how big the large area is. I mean I think the park is over 25 acres. When most of the dogs find out there is beachsand and a lake that they can swim in, they go all crazy. Funny to watch them pack up and greet a new dog. Of course then its time for 30 dogs to chase one, literally 30 or so were chasing a boston terrier who ran like a rabbit. Its also funny to watch 15 dogs chase the same ball. The park actually provides tennis balls, and of course poopie bags. It was a little pricey($11), but to know she had a blast was well worth it. And certain days of the month they have breed specific days where the price is half. At one point Maggie was covered in mud due her and about 4 other dogs trying to dig a canyon. It took me forever to try and fill that hole in. I would have took some pictures but it was raining, but that didnt seem to stop the pooches at all.
