Goodbye Uplands Park

It is that time again. The sad time to say good-bye to our Uplands Park.

Today is the last day that Dogs are allowed in the Park until July. This is because the birds are making babies. Some Dogs, like Ojo, are very disruptive to the baby birds.

I would like to point out that I would not be disruptive to the baby birds. I am Good Dog. I stay on the path, and I walk very slowly and calmly. But our person says there is no rule that says, "Only Dogs that stay on the path are allowed". Instead, the rule says "No Dogs". This is very disappointing, because this Park is one of my Favourite Places Ever.

Tonight we went for a special Walk after dinner to say good-bye to our Park.

The sun was also saying good-bye. The rocks and moss were warm. The air smelled like water and growing plants. The grass had bunny poop in it. (I ate some!)

We walked and sniffed and walked and sniffed while our person pointed her big-black-eye at things. Including us! (Because we are very beautiful in the setting sun, don't you think?)

So this is good-bye to Uplands Park until July. When we come back the grass will be very tall and very brown, and very full of seeds. The dirt will be hard and cracked.

This night, tonight, with the warm rocks and the fresh growing plants, (and the bunny poop!), was the best time at Uplands Park ever.

Good-bye, Park. We'll miss you!

(Are you sure we can't sneak in again tomorrow?)

Your person took beautiful pictures of the two of you in your beloved Uplands Park, Cobi and Ojo!

What a shame you can't go to your beautiful Park. Butt, baby birdies do need looking after and it'll soon be July and you can go back again and catch up on all the GREAT sniffs!

Hi Ojo and Cobi, those are beautiful photos of you in your Uplands Park. I too have a lovely area - in this case a magnificent stretch of sand dunes and an estuary - where I am not allowing in spring and early summer because I'm told it is an important nesting site for Arctic terns. I have absolutely no interest in disturbing Arctic terns, but no-one believes me.
Yours in sympathy,

Well, I guess that's OK if it's for the birdies. Once when I was a youngster, I found a robin nest in the lower branches of the pear tree. As soon as there were eggs in it, I ate them, quick as a wink!

Farewell Upland Park! We think that rule stinks. We love birdies and could help them learn to respect dogs.

When you do go back, watch out for those grass seeds, we all got them in our ears this year.

Last night was my first night without the boot or the sockie and I didn't lick and mom is so happy! Yay for me!
And the No Hide Chew took me over an hour to finish and I actually took a small break - something that I never do! I hope your person buys one for each of you. You will like them!
