Start of spring

first spring 09 in the park, originally uploaded by phaird.

Today started out a bit overcast. Toby and I got to the park early to help him get over his nervousness at the park by walking through the woods. We ended up taking the long trail and 40 minutes later we popped out to see a large group of people and dogs all standing in the sun. It was a great sight to see so many people out. The past few weeks with the weather improving, more and more families are out with their dogs.

There was a air of calm at the park, even with so many dogs running around, everyone just seemed to be at ease. It could be that I just walked 40 minutes and was tired but I'd like to think it the park that was calm. It is too early in the season for the dogs to play in the water and the muddy ground slowed some of the fast dogs down. Many people were just standing around, talking and enjoying the day.

I have to say the funniest moment happened when I watched a regular at the park pet a dog while the dog peed on his leg. he was too far away for me to do anything about it and he didn't know it was happening either. I felt bad for him but couldn't help but chuckle just a bit at it. We've all been peed on one time at the park at least once. Everyone knows not to wear nice clothes to the park. You're guaranteed to get dirty somehow.

A day at the dog park often brings new meaning to "getting in the trenches" for me. I always end up dirty somehow - even with my three small dogs.

Well you've got to be in it if you're you're gonna be of it.
