Dog Garden

Yesterday we went back to Dog Garden Dog Run with Jazz and Dixie. It is so hot and humid here in Tokyo but at this dog run (about an hour from home) it was much cooler because of the trees, the green grass and the breeze. I wet Jazz and Dixie's new T-shirts, put them on and the girls were away - racing around the dog run like crazy, chasing each other and playing with some of the 9 Border Collies we were sharing the dog run with. There was also a small pool which I put J&D in but Dixie immediately jumped out. I also sprayed them a bit with a hose much to Dixie's disgust - she hates water even more than Jazz does! Both girls found something smelly (dead worm??) to earslide and roach on! It was quite funny to watch them do that on the down hill grassy slope. Fire works from a nearby summer festival scared Dixie and sent her running to the safety (??) of a wooden gazebo where she was joined by a scared Corgi. Jazz stuck close by us. After about two hours we headed back to Tokyo stopping at Costco and another dog run on the way. The last dog run is part of a shopping mall complex that has a large pet shop and a dog run you can use free for half an hour. It was too hot to stay out for even the thirty minutes though, so we went back in to check out the pet shop and ended up buying J&D a new bed each that is covered with a cooling fabric. Despite the heat we had a great day out with the girls.

What a nice park! Bet you had a fun time there with your BC friends. Did the roaching feel good?

I wish we had a dog run like that here. It looks beautiful and green. Ours isn't even fenced in hence we don't go there hee hee.

Hugs and tail wags

Jazz n Dixie look so cute:) I think I must be a beagle too (hmm...does that sound a bit narcissistic?)...I am the right size, but I look a bit different:)

I found your blog at AO4's - Guess I'll return soon - you've got such wonderful photographs here.
