There aren't many dog parks near us... all require at least a 20 minute drive... so we always seem to go to the same ones. Today we decided to take Darwin to a new park, so we made the drive over to Luther Burbank Park on Mercer Island.
We parked up from the park at the community center where there was a big lawn of grass. I was trying to get Darwin to do a sit so I could get a good picture of her with Lake Washington in the background, but she decided she'd rather lay in the grass... but she also wanted to sniff so she scooted herself along laying and sniffing and scooting. It was so funny.
It's a pretty small park, but it has a sandy area for running around and easy access points to the water. Darwin is in no way a swimmer... we've tried, and she'll do a quick dog paddle and then turn back to where she can reach bottom... but she likes walking and splashing through the water and will even fetch tennis balls from the water and shes not a fetcher either.
She does this funny thing where she'll push the ball under water and stick her face in to get it. It cracks me up every time.
It was a beautiful day to be at a park on the water and we'll definitely be going back there again.
