Driving home from work yesterday I was inspired by the cooler weather, and by cooler weather I mean under 100 degrees. I decided this would be the perfect time to take my seven year old indoor dog to the Bark Park. He loved the idea, so off we went. It was raining slightly so there was no one else there, but Sergeant didn’t mind and ran around like a two year old. We played hide and go seek behind the large pillars and ran around so much that he actually hurt his foot. I checked it over several times and couldn’t see a cut but he wouldn’t put his foot on the ground. He was a complete trooper and walked home on three legs and didn’t complain once. By the time we got home it seemed to do better after a bath and a Frosty Paws ice cream treat.
The Bark Park was a fun place to let Sergeant run around free and I liked the bench in the shade to take a break and they had a vending machine of dog goodies plus drinks for the humans. They have several water fountains for owners and their pets and waste stations that were strategically placed.
Good job Deep Ellum and thank you Deep Ellum Foundation for taking great care of it!
