Oh the glorious sunny days

Posted by avatar on November 24, 2013

The weather has been fabulous…I love cold sunny days, they are simply the best.

Took Sammy and Jake to Bridgeman Park on the North Shore. From Vancouver take the #1 north and exit Mountain HWY, turn left at stop sign and another left and the lights. Stay to the right and you will see the sign for Bridgeman park. I would suggest getting there early on the weekdays and it’s really busy on the weekend but so worth it. The trail starts off from the parking lot. Once you’re under the bridge, it’s pretty safe to take you dog off the lead. The trail soon opens up to a large run space where you can find most dogs chasing balls, each other or just watching the fun times go by them. The trail continues on, where you will come upon a fork in the road. Turn right and go over the bridge (no cars) or you can go left and walk through the forest. If you choose to go over the bridge, there is a wide trail that follows the river. The trail is high above the water line, so if you decide to walk along the rocky waters edge, you will likely come upon a Memorial for Dogs, that is situated about (best guess) a 100 yards from the Bridge.

The picturesque trail can be as short as 1/2 an hour or as long as you want. Enjoy meeting new people and dogs in such a beautiful surrounding.

**Please make note of any warning signs of Coyotes, Bear and Cougars. It’s best to keep you dog close to you if and when you do see these signs.

From East to West

Hudson riverEastriverRiding the City Bike along the East River today and I came upon the cutest little doggy park. Large Squirrel and all. East River is more industrial and geared more towards the Piers but as I rode along, just before the Brooklyn bridge is where I stumbled upon this East River Dog run. I loved the little Bridge, Tree and Squirrel and I think the doggy’s did too.

As I rode back from the East River, towards the World Trade Center where I live… I rode past the Hudson River Doggy Run. This one designed with Fountains and sprinklers, and as always an area for the Doggy Owners to hang and watch them play.

Have a HAPPY Last week of September!


Yorkie in New Yorkie

Yorkie in New YorkieDog lovers visiting NYC…While walking around the crazy hustle and bustle of NY, take a moment to enjoy the little treasured doggy parks.

I find it really interesting that in the concrete world of NYC, you will find little doggie parks that are designed like a kids playgrounds but for dogs.
These mini dog parks have fountains, mini pools and some even have a mini Jungle gyms. These Small and Large dog runs can be found throughout the city, tucked in beside large parks or along the Hudson river.

As you pass by, you see happy furry faces with waggly tails, jumping around playing with their friends, while their owners chat over coffee.

Makes me miss my Jakerman and Sammy J so much, as I watch these dogs having so much fun.

Dog Bed designs are under way and I’m super excited…

I will be home soon enough, and get back on track with blogging about the Beautiful Doggie parks of Vancouver.
