Topeka's Bark Park

Today's Friday Shoot Out theme is Flora and Fauna and or Pets...  Well, since I don't have pets (not really, but we do sometimes leave out milk for a neighborhood cat that's been hanging around...) and since I already post quite a lot of pictures of flora, I thought I'd tell you about Topeka's Bark Park.


Anyway, my daughter and I took a field trip to the Bark Park in Topeka's Gage Park.  It's a nice place set aside in the park for dogs to run and play together and not have to be on a leash.  There are two different enclosures, one for large dogs and one for small dogs.

Here are some of the cute and lovable pets we met while we were there.









I learned that dogs are VERY hard to photograph.  They are always moving!  I have lots of blurry pictures!  Hahahahaa!

I love that last shot, a postcard-perfect photo!
Over here, dogs has to be on leash in public area otherwise the owner is liable for a fine .

Great idea to hit the bark park! They are hard to photography and when they slow down they usually have their tongues hanging out a mile to cool off.

Oh, I think these are great. I love the idea of the dog house at the bark park. Your photos are wonderful and it's a great idea for practicing portraiture of animals. You just inspired me.

I loved them all, but that bulldog really tugged at my heart! Great shots!

Well Tiffany, I'm glad you said that thing about having taken a lot of blurry shots! Because all of these shots are so natural and perfect that you make it look easy. And I know it's not. Your first shot is a perfect example of the "my town" aspect of this meme.

Ohh, that bulldog is awesome! What a great shot :) I love the one of the spaniel lounging on the bench, too...like she's just too busy relaxing to run around some park.

Tiffany said...

Thank you everyone for the enthusiasm! That lovely bulldog with the pink harness was a hit. She was SO sweet and just a cute little chunk (ok, not so little.) Her name was Tullah! How great is that??? :)
