Dog day afternoon

As you may, or may not, know Riley and I live near a dog park of sorts.  It is basically a decent size of grassed in area by the water where the neighborhood dog owners & their canines come to hang out after work for some off-leash play.  Unfortunately I never get to go off leash because my mom does not have faith that I will come back after getting the scent of a rat or a goose or a duck or a chicken bone or...well, you get the picture.  Occasionally Riley gets to go off leash and play, however.

The other day mom decided to bring her camera to the park to take some pictures of our dog friends.  Above is a picture of "Dash" (his full name is Dashel but I don't know how to properly spell it).  He is a French Bulldog (aka "Frenchie") that lives about 5 doors down from us - I think he is very handsome.

Here are some other pics of our friends:

Triple threat or Three dog night?
One happy Wheaton!  My mom said that it was very difficult to get a pic of this dog because he would rather sit in her lap than have his photo taken:
Double trouble puggles!
This is Ainsley...she is also a neighbor.  We never get to say hello to eachother because I just want to howl at her - I hate to admit it but I am jealous of her beauty.
I don't remember the name of this handsome fellow but I know that he was rescued.  He is such a lucky boy!
Another handsome canine friend:
This is a cutie pie smiling for the camera - isn't she bootiful?!
Another smiley girl:
And another handsome boy resting in the afternoon sun:
Unfortunately, the playtime photo session got cut short because Riley decided to go for a beverage with the stylish "apres-work" crowd.  Mom had to go fetch him from the center of this crowd.  When she finally caught up with him she found him trying to order a pawtini from a cocktail server - he was trying to explain that in dog years nine years old IS legal...

Riley should have gotten a pawtini and mengled with the crowd. It was so nice to see your park friends. That one in the last photo, is big and scary! I bet he is a good guard doggie.

Toffee,

It looks like you and Riley have lots of nice friends to play with. And I think that you are much cutter than a puggle-you have such nice markings.

Your friend,
Niamh
