Dog Park Saturday…

A while ago I had the thought that the dog park might yield some good photo ops, but today was the first time I actually went there.  Turned out to be a pretty good idea.  Except for the fact that when I got there several of the dogs were so enthusiastic about having their picture taken that they jumped all over me.  I wore muddy paw prints from that point on, but that probably made me fit in a little better.  I did ask the dog owners for permission to take pictures, they were fine with it.  I didn’t take Ozzie and Zoe with me because I didn’t think I could manage them and the camera.  Maybe next time I’ll be brave enough to bring them, or not…
