Titusville - Hoolie's favorite afternoon, the dog park


"Well, throw the ball already!"

One of the attractions in Titusville is an excellent fenced-in dog park. In fact, they have two, one for under 25 lbs and one for over 25 lbs. On the way over, Hoolie's leash is horizontal, tugging us ahead to hurry up and get there! All Hoolie wants to do is run and perhaps pay some attention to other dogs but not much. I throw, he runs, I throw, he runs, etc. I get as much exercise as he does, almost, since he never returns the ball. 

There is a little time for socializing, but not much - off to chasing balls again...

Eventually, his tongue gets longer and longer, like an indicator of the level of his exhaustion. He would run until he dropped, I think but he's getting on in years so as soon as he drops to rest a bit, we know it's time to move on. He pays some attention to other dogs but only to greet them, he jus likes to run. 

A big warm up is on the way with temps in the 70s for the next 7 days or so. We continue to be on vaccine alert. All appointments seem to disappear within 5 to 10 minutes of posting for reservations. We will try again tomorrow morning. We see no drop off of demand down here!

Hoolie looking great! Awesome that you keep him active, as well as yourself. Vaccine supplies here in CT are tight as well, keep trying and you'll get it. Thanks for all the posts and pics - look forward to them each morning. Stay safe, stay healthy!
