Desert Dog Park

We drove to the desert dog park. It’s only super hot in the summer 'cause it’s fenced in sand mostly. Arrow had eaten a flip flop and then some tin foil from a jacket pocket. There was Tylenol in it but those were all over the floor. So my owner mom wanted to get us (him) out of the house.

My mom thought we needed some exercise. Arrow ran around like a crazy dog. But he made lots of friends. I was pretty good off leash until I saw a giant Great Dane. Like a horse. I snipped at the back of his leg and out came my leash. He was so big he didn’t notice. We never get pictures of the good stuff because my camera woman is too busy freaking out.

We got to play. After a long time, Arrow started barking at a cute dog and wouldn’t stop. He’s frustrated because nobody speaks his language. Mom listened to talk radio on the way home and Arrow barfed up his kibble. (He prefers music in the car.) She checked that he didn’t swallow any medicine. Having a dog like Arrow can be pretty disgusting. And I am censoring this a little.

At home and tried to rest. But mom pulled out the elephant vacuum cleaner. Found a great place to hide.

I saw a great dane once. I tried to sniff his butt, but I couldn't reach, so I just sniffed his ankle instead. I don't think he noticed. :)

sounds like quite a day, your Mom has a LOT of patience!!! I bet she needed some of those Tylenol after that day!

Man, your mom must have a ton of patience, hee hee. Arrow sounds like a lot of work!

hi kids, we love our off leash park, but it doesn't have sand - lots of trails and bark and trees and mud, lots of mud, we like mud. poor Arrow, he is always getting into trouble. we hope the tin foil isn't going to hurt him. he sounds like a pretty wild child. it's a good thing that you are the good dog, Deefor.

I can be trusted off leash like you. But when any big dogs come in sight, I go charging at them and that drive my hoomans crazy.
