So naturally, I was incredibly excited when a new dog park opened on Saturday, a mere 10 minutes from my house. The park is located next to the also newly-opened Karl Stirner Arts Trail, along the Bushkill Creek, and you have to walk a little ways along the trail to get to it - no problem for a high-energy guy like Elvis. ;-)
The park isn't huge, but it's certainly big enough for Elvis to run around like a maniac:

Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of Elvis with his new friends, but he did make a bunch of them. One of his favorite games at home is for Glen or I to chase him in circles around the dining room table. Well, I think that game has been supplanted by getting chased in circles around the dog park by 5 of his new doggy friends. He had the biggest, goofiest grin on his face the whole time, with a hint of smugness because he knew he was faster than any of them. We even got a mention in the local paper, as did Elvis' new buddy Nemo. And for the record, Mr. Malone, Elvis is a black and white ball of energy, NOT a brown and white ball of energy. ;-)
I have to admit that at first I was annoyed by the lack of parking in close proximity to the dog park... but I guess if this is where I have to walk to get to the park, I can't be too mad about it:
How was your weekend? Did you get to enjoy the same wonderful, crisp fall weather we had here in the Lehigh Valley?
