Today was the day our beautiful brand new Salem Rotary Dog Park had it's Grand Opening and ribbon cutting. Lexi, Nitro, Chris and I all attended this awesome event and took photos of the ceremony.
I was nervous to let Nitro play in the dog park because he is deaf and I worried he wouldn't pick up the warning sounds from other dogs if they growled. Much to my surprise, Nitro was a perfect gentleman and he watched the other dogs body language very closely. At home he just gets in Bailey's face and barks very loud at her. With the strange dogs, he did not bark even once, he just played gently. I was very proud of him.
Below is the video of Nitro playing with his new buddies.
They even used Nitro's handsome face on their poster because this is the shelter we adopted him from.
Below are photos from today's festivities:
Salem Animal Shelter. They are the shelter that saved my Nitro and where we adopted him from. The new Salem Rotary Dog Park is adjacent to the shelter.
Salem Red Sox. Nitro used to play with Mugsy back in May at the Pet Expo when he was six months old.
My name is Christina and this is what started out to be my dog/horse blog named after my dog Lexi. Slowly my blog has morphed into a dog/life/farm blog. I love to take photos of everything relating to the farm and local events. I am also a Design Junkie and love to take my old run down ranch and redesign every inch into my dream retreat. Join Lexi, myself and all the delightful creatures at Bluebird Farm and have a peek inside our wonderful world... "The World According To Lexi"

Wow, I kind of have to wonder what my dogs would do if presented with a giant, moving, talking, stuffed animal person.ReplyDelete
what a wonderful day you all had :)ReplyDelete
The weather couldn't have been better for this! I love the photos of Nitro and Mugsy! Too cute! Wish I could have been there. I'm glad to see Nitro got to play and all went well. He really is a gentleman. Have a great, sunshiney weekend!ReplyDelete
I am really glad they liked the dog park. Some of my five dogs do, and some don't Ive found it to be a very individual thing but every community should have oneReplyDelete
Congrats on the new park! What a great bunch of dogs!ReplyDelete
Congratulations on a wonderful new dog park! Did Lexi ever run and play like Nitro?ReplyDelete
Drools and licks,

@Minnie and Mack. Lexi did not play in the park. She only plays with Tallulah at home and no one else.ReplyDelete
