Dog Days of Summer

A new dog park opened in our town and it has been a huge hit with everyone around here. Unfortunately, we haven't been able to enjoy the park because our dog Cosmo not only doesn't think he's a dog, but he loathes other dogs of any size. Going to the dog park would be tantamount to torture for him. Luckily, Nana and Papa have newly adopted two adorable Yorkies into our family, Rae Rae and Rocko. They brought the dogs out to Biscuit Acres and we all had a great time, dogs and people alike. Rocko is on Papa's lap and Rae Rae is Nana's dog.Kami, Ellie and a couple of their friends romped with the dogs for a long time, running around with bright eyes and wagging tails.
One hilarious aspect of being at Biscuit Acres is taking in all the dogs... their shapes, sizes, colors and personalities. Here is Jack, getting a handle on the situation... oh so cautiously. He looks a little concerned.And Pete, he's one happy-go-lucky guy. Couldn't miss him with his head sticking out the back of the truck.
This white dog was one of Ellie's favorites.Our own Rae Rae is enjoying some frisky exercise.Now that the Dog Days of Summer are nearly over, we'll have to see how it is over in Biscuit Acres during the Dog Days of Fall!

I've been debating about bringing the labradoodles over there. My worry is that the Dood will try to make a lot of girlfriends. :)

I saw that when I was in Tulsa. That's really neat. It looked like it was fenced off into sections. Could you not have one section for your dogs so he wouldn't bother anyone? I am not sure how it works, but that's what it looked like...or do you have to share with other dogs?

We have a new dog park, too, but that name rocks!!

(And, one of our cats has no idea that she's a cat, either. She actually looks down on cats...and really anything with fur. It's so awkward!)

I'm giggling to myself at these adorable pics...

My family, which was never really a "dog" family, now has 6 dogs between us all! (We're the only ones w/o one...yes, my kids don't let me forget that.)

Anyway, 5 out of 6 of them are Yorkies! They are SO CUTE just like your Mom & Dad's. :)
