A while ago I tried a new dog park. The Douglass Dog Park in San Francisco. Mama and Papa were invited to a birthday BBQ party in the city and because I still don’t stay home alone (not even for 5 minutes) they asked if I was invited too. And guess what? I was allowed to go to the party even though I had to stay on the patio and wasn’t allowed inside the house, because the birthday girl was allergic to me.

But that was fine for me. I like being outside and the best was, I was closer to the BBQ. Tee-hee

But anyways, Mama and Papa thought it was a good idea to let me play before the party, so that I would be tired and relaxed. So we tried the Douglass Dog Park in San Francisco. The dog park section is located between 27th and Douglass Street. It’s all fenced in and really really big. It has a grassy area and a steep hill. I ran with some bigger dogs, when one climbed up the hill and I followed him. Guess what? I’m not a mountain goat, even though I got very high up. But Papa had to come get me down again, because I was a little trapped and couldn’t get down on my own. Oh, well…

The park also has a drinking fountain too, some trees and benches for the humans to sit on.

I had a blast! On the downside though, the park has some muddy areas too and obviously I had to jump in one of the mud puddles. Mama wasn’t too pleased especially as I was all dirty BEFORE we got to the party.

Guess that’s why no one was cuddling with me that day. I’m not used to that so I pretended to sleep.

When we came home in the evening, of course I had to go in the shower.  NOT A FAN

But the Douglass Dog Park was fun. There’s a meetup group if you’re interested: http://www.meetup.com/The-San-Francisco-Upper-Douglass-Dog-park-Meetup/

I’d give the park 4 out of 5 paws. It’s huge, has a nice few, lots of friendly dogs and humans, a lot to explore but also a bit muddy. And in our case… a little to far away from home to come here on a regular basis. But if you’re living in the city, this is an awesome place to go to.

    Snoopy, the park is really huge. I liked it a lot but it’s a bit dirty too, so prepare to have to have a bath afterwards :-)
    Puppy kisses, Pepper
