Medford Dog Park, a Dog’s Perspective
“Hey dad,” says Bubba, “Last time Skruffy gave the Dog Perspective, this time it is my turn. OK?”
Ok with me Bubba, go ahead and tell the story….
When I first got to the Dog Park, I thought I was in Arny’s backyard again! I searched all over, but no Arny. Can you see me in that picture in the upper right?
Yep, there I am over by the…..HEY DAD!
“Yes Bubba, you are doing fine, go ahead and continue.”
BUT DAD, I don’t remember seeing that pink ribbon sticking out of the grass…where did it come from?
“Well Bubba, if you remember…my mom found out about having Breast Cancer right before we left…and I told our blog readers before we left Sacramento that I was adding a pink ribbon to all of our pictures in honor of my mamma.”
Oh, ok…I must have been sleeping when you did that.
“No Bubba, I think you were in Arny’s garage that day rolling in the bondo dust right after I cut your hair and gave you a bath….anyway, continue your story”
I followed that big huge wall, and went way out to the corner looking for Arny…couldn’t see him, couldn’t smell him…but I did smell so many other dogs that for awhile there I was just in my own little world…
So I worked my way back to that bench area, when from my right I hear this very familiar “jingle”, and then a “BARK - BARK - BARK”. Oh no, it’s Skruffy running over to me…that sure snapped me out of my little world….
Ok Skruffy, what do you want now? Yes, I saw those other dogs….Oh, ok, I will go sniff them with you.
Hey Skruffy, I thought you said “Go Sniff”, not “Get Sniffed”!
Yea, this one I heard from way out there….I think I finally found a dog with a bigger mouth than you Skruffy.
Watch out Skruffy, this one looks like he sees lunch coming his way.
I know dad was wanting to go pretty soon, so I started up the fence on the other side of the park.
I circled this tree a couple of times…still no Arny, but there sure were a lot smells around that tree!
Ok dad, I hear you calling….thanks for letting me tell the story…that park was sure fun, but nothing, and I mean NOTHING tops Arny’s backyard!
“Thank you Bubba, now I will talk about where we are staying just a bit.”
There are six spots at the hospital for RVs, each with water and electricity. There is no cost, and it is short term unless you have a special circumstance which requires a longer stay. However, there is no place to dump, so you have to take care of that yourself.
At night it was very quiet. Around 8 we heard a helicopter land, then take off again a few minutes later. We heard no sirens, few cars. Happy we only have to be here for two nights…but it sure could be worse. Tomorrow we head further north into Washington.
note: Marcia has had a good day. Says thanks to all well wishers.
