Big Break

There is a city park in Oakley that is called Big Break, but which I think should be renamed "Doggyland". Every time I go there I think that this is what heaven will be like for dogs. There is a huge open field with streams running through it. There is also a place where there is an inlet from the Delta, where the dogs can swim. We took the dogs there today, and they really had fun. They were running almost the entire time; chasing each other, chasing balls, and swimming.
This isn't the most exciting picture, but this is the view of the Delta from the park.














This picture looks like a ship run aground, but it really is ported in an inlet nearby.
















Here are Sally and Duke enjoying a swim














Here is Duke doing his favorite pasttime, retrieving a ball from the water.














Here's Sally doing her favorite pasttime, digging in an animal hole. Sometimes she looks like a headless dog.













Charlie's favorite pasttime is eating, but he does enjoy an occasional dig.













And 50 bonus points to whoever is the first one to tell me what animal prints are shown here. :)

I just posted, then googled "racoon prints" and I really might be right! lol ;) My husband shows me animal footprints, but he knows them all.

I think you are right...you win the million bonus points! Use them well. ;) These prints were all over by the stream that ran through the field. At first I thought that the little dog that was with us had made them, but then my neighbor pointed out that these were old, dry prints, not fresh moist ones. I really do think they are raccoon.

Looks like a fun place. Our dogs hate water... and one of them is supposedly part Lab... go figure.

LOL I thought they were human hand prints, I didn't even think about racoons! How fun to see the dogs playing like that! I bet they all slept hard the rest of the day LOL

I was going to say raccoon too, but I guess someone beat me to it...
