A dog park called Seattle

When we returned to the city, we (Buko and Jacks, to be specific) were elated to have beds and airconditioning. Not to mention Whole Foods (organic meat!). What we did not realize, however, is that this city called Seattle is, in fact, a magical place where dogs roam off leash, can socialize freely, and have ample opportunity for aquatic frolicking (not to mention the beautiful views). Also, we're endlessly entertained by the attention paid to picking up our (dogs', that is) poop. :)

We first visited Marymoor Park in Redmond, written about in Bark magazine as the best dog park in the US. We thoroughly enjoyed it, and while we might not concur with the superlative, it definitely ranks up there. Our buddy Wally recommended one of his old haunts, Magnuson Park, which we thought was outstanding: lots of room to run and his sissy Morgan's great beach. We also checked out Dr. José P. Rizal Park in Beacon Hill because our human wanted to connect with his peeps. No peeps, but a fun trail and terrific views of Safeco and Qwest Fields.

Good butt sniffin'. Can we just live here?

Oh I'm so jealous! Ethel doesn't even know what she's missing. And now that there's coffee at the dog park there's no reason to leave! (Except no organic meat on site, eh?)

We hope Ethel makes it out here to explore these great places--and, hey, when we live in Humptulips, we'll have all the time in the world!
