A tired dog is a happy dog

This is what we love about the dog park: it makes us very very tired. Every morning, we try to spend at least an hour at the dog park. We get home around 8 a.m., and the day hasn't even started yet for most Floridians. South Florida is definitely not a morning kind of place. But it's great for morning kind of people who like some quiet time. There is only a handful of great dogs and congenial people at the dog park when we get there -- right when the gate opens at 7 a.m.

We get back up to the condo, make the bed, empty the dishwasher and do other little things, all before most people in the building have woken up! Then we can just laze around. Lazing around is a major talent, after sniffing, of hounddogs.

Later this morning, Samantha's cousin came over to hang out by the pool. Booker budged over a bit and let her share "his" sofa for a minute. He got some gentle ear rubs and a belly scratch for being so courteous.

Hi Booker,
Thanks for signing my guestbook. It took this long for me to find you! And usually beagles have great sniffers. Great to meet you. We've fostered several coonhounds like Zorro. They were all so sweet! Nice to meet you!

love & wags,

You look pretty comfy on that sofa with Sam's cousin, Booker!
We think you're smart to hit the dog park before it gets hot and crowded! We'd do the very same thing!

Love ya lots
Maggie and Mitch
