Gotta Rest

On Friday me and Stanley got pooped!  First we went on our regular 6 mile run.  We always love doing that.  BUTT after we only had a short time to rest, mom and dad had to go to the dog park to meet a man from the city and to do some measuring.  One thing led to another and they ended up taking a long time.  All the while they were doing these stuffs, everybody was throwing my ball.  And they were throwing it FAR!  Finally we had to rest . . . for awhile.

Dog Park Status:  We met with the mayor on Thursday and are hoping to have the park up and running by the end of April.  The council has informally signed off on the current location (with compromises on parking).  We hope to be ready for the council's final vote of approval on April 14th.  Keep your paws crossed!

    Even if you did have to rest after running 10 miles!!!! (that is my estimate of your six mile run and all the tenny ball fetchin' you did at the park!! ☺)
    I thinks I better up my trainin'! I'm only doin' 3 miles!!! (Ma is a lazy arse cause of her head...)

  19. Awesome news Doods!! We are SO happy for you and for your mom!! You deserve a rest after running for that long! Wow!

  20. COOL!! Its getting there!! Gee....ENJOYI your rest after that run!!


  21. We have all of our paws and fingers crossed for you. We still do not have the dog park that was approved and lingered in the courts for years! Since they won't make a dog park, we are going to the human parks. I think your park should be the Murphy & Stanley Park ☺

  22. that looks like a nice shady spot for a rest and a beautiful day to be outside playin. concats on the dog park progress! we'll be keeping our paws crossed for that opening day at the end of April!

  24. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! Everything in your blog was white, and now it is green! Hurray for spring! (And hurray for Ball chasing!)
