Fun at the river

Louise had to come pick me up at the airport last weekend and since we were there, we decided to visit the Fraser River dog park. I'm not sure if that is exactly what it is called, but man oh man, the dogs sure do have a good time there. Ours was no exception.

The nice thing about this park is that the dogs are allowed to run off-leash along the sandy beaches and play in the water. The beach isn't really suited for sunbathers, and there is a bird sanctuary nearby too, so the dogs just love it. Pictured here is Louise meeting with one of the few dogs that was close to her size. They got along well. As for the other, larger dogs, well Louise got a bit bossy toward one and we had to separate them. But the other dog's owner was pretty good natured about it, so he cut Louise a lot of slack.

Needless to say, we had quite the little mess on our hands when we started to head back to the car. We forgot towels! We made do with lots of grass instead, and got the really muddy parts wiped off our dog before heading home.
