When we took our last journey, we discovered Dog Parks. Sunshine loved them, smelling, running, and being with other dogs in a fenced in area and not being on a leash. Yesterday, we toured two in our home area, one in Flushing and one in Frankenmuth, MI. The park in Flushing was full of mature trees and adjacent to a boarding kennel. The park in Frankenmuth was large, clean and grassy. Sunshine loved the freedom in both parks but seemed to like the more open spaces in Frankenmuth. Frankenmuth is also only a half hour or so away and there is a Greyhound Meet and Greet in town Saturday so we will probably return to the dog park then, too. There is a small stream in the park. The day was very hot and Sunshine walked to and then into the stream and sat right down to cool herself. Between laughs, I was able to get her out of the creek before she completely soaked herself. When we returned to a dog park that we had been at before, while traveling, Sunshine got very excited as we approached because she knew that she was going to be free to roam and socialize for a while. As soon as she meets other dogs at either of these parks, I am sure that she will be just as excited.
