Ok Hazel, these are for you!

Jaida, Heidi, Poko, Darby and Bos had a play date at the dog park today! It was very busy and lots of fun, despite the presence of a Basset Mafia :eek::laughing:

Seriously, the park was FULL of them! And I don't have pics of Heidi because the Basset Mafia was out to get her...I'm not sure what she did to slight the Family but apparently the offense was serious enough to warrant a serious barking-at! :eek:

Is this the dog park at Yonge and Tower Hill? We're due for another visit there and will likely stop by on the weekend.

Oh, I love the sheer flurpiness of it all! :flirt: Looks like a great deal of fun, too! :D

Poor Heidi, though. Did the poor dear have to wait in the car? :dog:

She was in and out....in after she got snarky with some boistrous labs, then out once they left...then in after the Mafia chased her around the park for 20 minutes. BARK. BARK. BARK. Right in her face! It was like water torture, only louder :laughing: She handled it very well, though, I was very proud of her.

Heidi was incredibly well behaved at the dog park.:highfive: Heidi for not laying the beats on the Bassett family!

The Bassetts were like fat little men in matching suits (with big ears of course), following her around bark, bark, bark right in her face. They couldn't catch her, but the moment she stopped they were |right| there! bark bark bark
I have not seen 4 bassetts in one spot before. It was quite comical, and they really seemed to be in gang mentality.

Thanks for the pictures! Your camera's "snow" feature works well. I can't wait to see what it does in fly infested, Arctic mode!

The Photoshop I got for xmas helped too! I have to practice lots before I go up to minimize the suckitude.

Great pics :thumbs up Love Jaida & her new BFF :D

Basset Mafia :laughing: Good for Heidi :thumbs up How did Poko handle The Family? :D

I take it Gracie & Harvey don't do so well with lots of new off leash dogs so they stayed home? :sad: :grouphug: for them

Hey Growler,

Gracie and Harvey would try to own the dog park, so they had to stay home :)
Poko did not seem to care either way about The Family. She just sniffed and ran, and chased a bit. She has not been with other dogs before so she is just learning to play.
Jaida is a doll, and was tireless with her ball :)
