Some Colorado Dog Parks

I am not sure if I will ever run around in a dog park again. Last week I was at the fenced doggie park with Arrow. I don’t know what got into me. I was standing next to a leg and I bit it. It looked kind of like a Great Dane leg, but it belonged to a woman. She was bleeding. It was a little bite but it was bad. Her pants tasted kind of like socks. Maybe I need glasses—or contacts.

Arrow was running around and I was hanging around. I calmly nipped at the leg and then went about my business. It was bad. We had to leave. My mom is worried about me.

I’ll tell you about some dog parks in Colorado that I visited while I can still remember them. The places I may never see again.

Cherry Creek State Park in Denver is very nice. There is a big section where doggies can run around and play. There is the creek and a muddy pond to swim and splash in. Lots of trails. There is a place with horses in part of the park where doggies aren’t supposed to go. (Where Arrow went under the fence and ate horse poop.)

There is a smaller-- but not too small-- fenced park in another part of Denver called Stapleton. (Where I had my unfortunate nip incident.) It is mostly sand with a few trees and places for humans to sit. It isn’t bad as long as it’s not too hot. When it’s hot, it’s like a desert.

We went to a fenced in but woodsy park in Golden, a city not far from Denver. This place was nice because it was cool. There were some paths and lots of trees. It is part of a bigger park. I walked around with a doggie who looked like Amber Mae.

Arrow couldn't get under the fence to the archery club.

And there is Cheesman Park, around the corner from our house. You aren’t supposed to be off your leash there, but it’s been known to happen. It’s got good smells even on the leash.

Sorry I haven't been on the computer much. And you know whose fault that is.

Oops! Deefor, maybe it was because you lost a tooth??? I'm sure it was just an accident!

Hi Deefor
I am back from vacation...those were wonderful photos. I have a friend in Colorado too

Sharon said...

Oh, Deefor! May that was a bad lady and your extra sensitive senses sensed that she was bad!

all those dog parks look so nice! I wish ther was one around here!

Mango said...

Uh oh, little Deefor, watch out. I got kicked out of the doggie daycare for a similar accident involving a boxer dog putting his head in my mouth.

Hey Deefor,
Didn't you say the lady's leg looked like a Great Dane's? Well, then of course you had to bite it! My cousin Great Danes have very tasty legs, I nibble on them all the time when we play. Makes perfect sense to me.

Deefor!!! I think you and Arrow should come to Arizona and play in my park with me. It was rated the #1 dog park. It's called Cosmo Dog Park!!!

Consider this a formal invitation. BTW...did the leg at least taste good. Humans deserve a good bite here and there!

Don't forget to post pictures of your goody exchange package!!! Go to Chef's blog and post it in the Album!!! Woohoo! Can't wait to see!

There must be something in the Colorado air that is making us act weird. I was a very bad dog this weekend too! Hopefully whatever is going on will end soon or you and I will be having a very long and boring summer.

Deetz said...

Maybe the human woman was a mean ugly undercover witch or alien and you sensed it and snapped at her to leave your human alone. You know we dogs sense when something isn't right. I sure hope you don't get into trouble and still get to go and play at the parks.

Poppy said...

Uh-oh! I hope you are still allowed at the park.

Don't feel bad. I know it was naughty, but the urge to nip, especially if we know they deserve it (and I'm sure the humans have no idea, but we animals can tell) can be overpowering and can happen to the best of us. Tell your mum not to worry, and not to give up on the dog parks!
