Dexter At The Dog Park

Lights out

I’ve recently been taking Dexter out to a new dog park. Less people go to this one than the one in the city, which means I have to put up with fewer incompetent owners.

I know. I’m a big meanie. I’m also very judgmental.

Sue me.

Usually, Dex likes to play fetch for an hour or so. I guess that’s why his breed is called a ‘Retriever’. The only thing I think he’d rather do other than catch a ball and bring it back is to swim.

So here’s a few pictures of him at the park. Sorry I don’t have any of him in action, but it’s hard to get an action shot while throwing the ball. I’m not only judgmental, but I’m also slow. 🙂

Fun fact: I like to drop my muddy tennis balls in the clean water to clean them off

  1. youre not being judgemental, you just don’t like sloppy dog people. And there are, to be fair, dogs that should not be in those kinds of situations. They’re too aggressive.

    Im amazed that Dexter gets along so well with all those other dogs…

    • He generally does because he doesn’t know how to be aggressive. He’ll run from an angry dog or think its playing. If something snaps at him, he literally runs behind my legs and peeks through. He’s just not the type of dog to fight.

      I get tired of lazy dog owners who don’t keep their animals in line. It’s not the dogs fault, but the owner.

      Or maybe I just don’t like many people. LOL.

    On your post over at Isiah my comments are disappearing.

    Who’s moderating that? Do you have control over the comments? It’s pretty frustrating if censorship is going to be the order of the day.

    This is what i’m trying to post in response to mark:

    Hi Mark

    What ‘scientific’ evidence are you talking about?

    The Templeton Foundation (a Christian group) has spent over $1 billion in the last 25 years specifically looking for the “soul,” using science, and they have found nothing.

  3. A comment with Dexter in mind

    If you can live without caffeine,

    If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

    If you can resist complaining,

    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment,

    If you can ignore a friend’s limited education and never correct him or her,

    If you can resist treating a rich friend better than a poor friend,

    If you can face the world without lies and deceit,

    If you can conquer tension without medical help,

    If you can relax without liquor,

    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

    If you can honestly say that deep in your heart you have no prejudice against creed, color, religion, gender preference, or politics,

    –Then you have almost reached the same level of spiritual development as your dog!
