Hi, it's really hard to translate to folks who haven't been to a Mill Valley Tripawd Pawty, how really special they are.
The dog park itself is just amazing, it's huge. They have a section for the smaller dogs, a river for those who wish to partake , free doggie do do bags if you forget yours, a water fountain for dogs and one for people.
The folks who frequent the dog park, the locals, are really very nice. They make sure that people clean up after their dogs and they keep an eye on their own dogs.
It's really nice when folks recognize us and come over and talk about dogs and whatever...
It's the friendship between the pawrents that is so very special. We hug when we see each other, find out what's going on in each other's lives, how the "kids" are, how the jobs are going, who's been sick, who had a birthday or an anniversary, and we truly enjoy watching our dogs and the ever changing group of local dogs that come and go, play, run, take a time out, return "borrowed" tennis balls. who's dog is doing a splash and dash in the "communal" water bowl, and just enjoying the day. As we walk to the parking lot, we start talking about when we'll meet again, we hug each other, say our goodbye's, pack up the kids and go home.
When Bernie Bin Laden and crew come north the mayhem reaches a fever pitch! John takes pictures, chucks tennis balls and keeps everybody in stitches. Then someone breaks out the "treats" and dogs from all over the dog park suddenly appear.
Our "group of pawrents" have become friends, we belong to a very special group, our dogs have brought us together and even if they have crossed over the bridge, their memories and our friendship keeps us together.
We are having a huge pawty on April 14Th at 11AM, come on out an enjoy the day. It doesn't matter if your dog has 2, 3, 4 or 5 legs, bring 'em. If you have an angel, you can be pretty sure they are already here helping us have a wonderful time, so join us!
