New Running Digs

Took a drive over Sunday morning to check out what will be our new regular dog park in 2 weeks. I am thrilled to report that there will be no more iDirt! Woot! I’m sure Kate’s feeties are thrilled as well.

The new park is the faux grass, but not the longer kind that’s supposed to look like a lawn. It’s shorter, like, sports turf stuff. Not crazy slippery like the longer stuff. Looks like green carpet.

Kate was loving the cush

Good gripping

Squishy toes

Much softer landings

Bell was digging the feel so much she couldn’t keep her eyes open


All in all, a successful reconnaissance mission. Nice park. Good group of dogs. Bit of a relief, actually. Testing dog parks is like testing hairdressers. There never seems to be any in-between, right?

Although, I have to tell you, it will be tough to look at this surface everyday and resist the urge to bring a vacuum cleaner!

And, we will bid a fond farewell to Fashion Feets!



  1. Man those are some pretty amazing action shots! Teach me!
    Kasha and Africa!

  2. Boy, I wish I knew how to take such clear pictures, especially when the dog is moving so much. By the way, I love the socks!!!

  3. That looks like a great new park! I love what they are starting to do with them.


  4. Ahhhhh that new surface will feel sooo much better on Kate's feetsies! What nice place! I can understand your urge to vacuum though! LOL Your pictures never fail to make me smile - they are so full of character and personality!

  5. You take great photo's. Love the thought of turf @ the dog park. It's mainly sand here. Most of Florida is though.

  6. What great photos! The little socks are absolutely adorable too!

  7. Pawz Dog boots are the best. I have used many other dog boots and nothing compares to the Pawz boots. It is a lightweight boot but is so effective. And it is very convenient if you are on the go. I purchased my boots from the entirely pets store because they have a reasonable price and the shipping was not much for only a $16.00 item. Below is the link if you are interested in purchasing these boots. Buy a pair for your dog, your dog will thank you.
