Marley is a city dog, this means she does not have a large back yard to run around and play. She goes on about 2 long walks a day, however this does not allow her to run. She loves to run and have the wind style her fur.
In order to accommodate her love of running and allow her to play with other dogs we visit various dog parks on a regular basis. I have to say we both get a lot out of becoming regulars at a couple of dog parks. Marley has made friends she loves to play with and she can run around in circles as much as she likes and she has discovered a new hobby, inciting other dogs to dig holes. Yes my dog instigates this bad behavior. She'll begin scratching on the dirt and another dog will take over and begin digging frantically under Marley's supervision.
On Sunday, October 13th at 9 a.m. Carmichael Canine Corral has a Dog Park Clean up day. They are asking us to bring work gloves, garbage bags in addition to contributing to the clean-up effort. This is a great dog park that has an active Dog Park Society.
I'm sure I'll be assigned the task of filling all of those holes she has inspired other dogs to dig.
