Our Hike, Our Park...

Today we are joining all of Blogville for Hike in the Park Day!! Many thanks to GIZMO and FINN and Charley for hosting this special event. We are excited to share our amazing  park with you.

It doesn't take long to get to our or poppy just  open the back door and we're there!! Our park is open from sunrise to sunset, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. It's all ours.....3 years ago when we moved here mom had 2 requests--#1 she wanted a swing. Poppy was kind and gave her 3 (located at various spots in the park so the peeps can rest)  #2 mom wanted a groomed walking trail for walking in the park--she got it. Approx. 2 miles of trails.

Let's get started...

 We always have to stop and check out the woodpile for furry friends and 
to make sure there's enough wood to heat park headquarters!!

What do we have here???

Schatzie trying out the tree balance beam.

 Schatzie enjoys a dip in the creek

 the park is really just starting to green can see our 
park ranger/grounds keeper has mowed the path.
 Sometimes we like to walk on opposite sides of the creek :)

Park Headquarter and snack shop
 There's even an archeological dig in the park
It's really a badger hole...we can smell him!!

One of 4 swimming ponds

Hey Mom, say CHEESE!!!
we have a trail cam to spy  monitor the wildlife in the park
 Schatzie trying her paw at fishing---yes, there's fish in our ponds and 1000's of frogs

A breath of fresh air

 Near park headquarters you will find another swing calling your name.
You can enjoy the beautiful flowers and birds while the park staff fixes your breakfast or dinner.

 or you can just kick up your heels and let out a big WOOF!!

Hope you enjoyed your visit to our park. If you're ever in the area stop by and we'll give you a royal tour.

Remember at our park
collars and leashes are

P.s. Where's Sasha, I'm hungry!!



  1. you have an awesome it...

  2. If ever I am in your area I will most defiantly stop by!! Your very own park at your back door. Life is good. AND you have your own stick pile and fish in the pond. Well you are in heaven in my opinion. Sticks and fishing, it doesn't get much better than that. I love your park you lucky pups. Thanks for the tour.

  3. Wow, what a great backyard/park you guys have. So many options for different types of exercise - love the balance beam! Thanks for sharing - you guys are certainly candidates for FitDog Friday!

  4. Looks like a lovely park where you could spend all day at!

  5. That is an incredible park! You're very lucky to have that outside your back door and to have such great groundskeepers too. We are looking forward to having the same type of thing when we move to the 40 acre homestead later this year. Happy trails!

I am trying really hard not to be jealous, i love your park and if that park was in my back yard i would never leave home. you know how much i find to snap at on our little 100 x 100 feet of property, so think what i could find there, and that swing is calling to my kindle.

  9. Wow! Are you guys from Germany??? Schatzie we haven't heard since we left Germany and a "nude" park (no collars) reminds us of the nude beaches. Sure looks like a fun place to race around in!

  21. 1st - I am so jealous! I wish we had our own park! Where we live everyone is really close together!

    2nd - I love swings too. There is just something so peaceful about sitting in a swing and enjoying a warm summer breeze, watching the trees sway and the birds drift along on the wind...

  22. Between the balance beam and chasing 1000s of frogs, I could be happy all day . . . not to mention the optional leash thing! You have the best park staff ever. ;-)
