The Dog Park Is Closed. And That’s A Good Thing.

We caught a break with the weather today so Eko and I decided to head over to the dog park.  However, as we approached I noticed a distinct lack of play barks or the usual sound of paws flying by.  Something was up.

Eko normally heads straight for the gate but today there was a lot to investigate outside the park fence

Over the ridge of the park came a rumbling sound that quickly caught Eko’s attention.  Can you spot what it was?

“Will, I do believe that it the strangest dog I have ever seen.”

I momentarily worried that puppy paradise was being paved for a parking lot, but a worker assured me that this was not the case.  In fact, quite the opposite – the park is under renovation.

About a third of the old park was fenced off for this agility course.  Unfortunately the agility course had fallen into disrepair.  The equipment was so close together that it was tough for more than one dog to use the area at a time

We didn’t make it to the park today, but I don’t think Eko will mourn the loss once he  has his first romp in the new digs!

Be so thankful if you have a dog park. We don’t. I talked to the mayor two times over the past two years. He just says he is talking about it at the next meeting. Not! I may make an appearance at the meeting myself so it is out there.
