Touring Tuesday: Our Dog Park

Remember a few posts back I explained that our dog park isn't really a dog park? It's just sort of a place that leashless dogs and their respective owners go and enjoy themselves. There is a group working very hard to kick the off leash dogs and handlers out, but the dog lovers in this city are fighting just hard to make sure that doesn't happen. The group wants the dogs and owners to occupy a small, fenced area located behind our local Humane Society. On today's "Touring Tuesday" I want to show you why we are not giving up without a good fight. :)

Your park is pretty! A Bridal Emergency Kit is the million little things that will make the day go easier - espcially in event of an emergency like a dress stain or tear. This is a pretty good list: http://weddings.about.com/cs/bridesandgrooms/a/emergencykit.htm and I would add a tin of white shoe polish (If you're wearing a white dress!) It's the best way to cover up last second stains.

Oooohhhh, and on of those dollar store sewing kits! Seems like I would always find a last minute snag or tear in dresses to fix!

Thank you for this. I didn't even realise that there were such emergency kits. LOL You rock :)

Awww... Jetta! Please give her an extra hug from me. This park sounds like a very nice place for the dogs to play, so I understand why the fight is on. I wish we had a dog park in my hometown for nice dogs to play together, but unfortunately off-leash dogs have been banned from all our city parks because of too many mean, untrained dogs being let loose on the public.
