Another run at Chapman Field Park

We had so much fun last week, Dusty and I decided to do it again and drove to Coral Gables this morning to hook up with Dawn and her girls at Chapman Field Park.

It was a humid day, a bit less comfortable than our outing last week. Dawn, Rosie, Lily, Luna, Dusty and I did have the large enclosed area all to ourselves when we got there. But the two hounds weren't quite as energetic in the dog park as they were last week -- at least in the beginning.

We were joined not too long after we got there by a young local family with one of the cutest puppies ever -- a 4-month-old weimaraner named Shadow. This beautiful, energetic boy was all ears and paws and energy, and he was able to coax Dusty and Luna into a couple of good runs. Catch a glimpse of Shadow at the end of this video.


Dawn got some great photos of the two hounds I really wanted to share:

Another great day with the girls. We skipped our planned return to Panera Bread. We were all too exhausted to extend the day further. Dusty got a quick bath immediately when we got home. Dawn told me in a text a little later that Luna got a bath, too. All of us got a nap.
