Play Date at the Park

Last Sunday it was a beautiful, crisp day so we headed out to a local neighborhood park to meet up with my aunt & uncle and their young English Bulldog, Bella, about whom I've written before here, to chat, enjoy the beautiful weather, and let the dogs run around. 

Tucker doesn't exactly love Bella ... she's bigger, heavier, and has no concept of personal space or doggy etiquette (Tuck is doing his best to educate her on this front, but to little discernible improvement thus far) ... but as long as he isn't in a confined space with her, he is ok.  And they actually did have a good time together sniffing around this park, which they had basically to themselves except for some neighborhood kids who were kicking a soccer ball around.

Some snaps from the outing: 

Tucker was warmly attired for the outing in his red hoodie ... and sporting his new ID tag (more on that later!) 

Tucker & Bella exploring the bridge ...

More of Tucker on the bridge ... lots to see from up here! 

Bella decided to see if her face would fit through the bars like Tucker's did.  (It doesn't.) 

Bella descending the bridge steps ...

When Bella's play became rougher than he preferred, Tucker simply climbed a tree ... 

 Ha ha you silly Bulldog ... you can't get me up here! 

Not one to dwell on lost opportunities, Bella decided to abandon trying to chew on Tucker's legs (in the most playful manner - no malice intended) and pose for a few more photos.

She really wanted the treat I had in my hand.

No one could say she isn't photogenic! 
Oh, we're leaving?  I guess I'd better get down from here, then!

Oh that Bella. I think our daughter and her family have Bella's twin, Zoey.

Anyway, we can see that Tucker is being very sweet. Love the red coat. A very nice day to go to the park!

pee ess what do you and your mom think of this horrible word recognitin/verification thing Google makes commenters go thru? It's furry hard to understad and it takes me 3 or 4 times to make a comment any more.

This was a most wonderful post. I loved all the pictures of you two gorgeous darlings. Little tongues, hiding in a tree, crossing a bridge, adorable outfit - ah, just great!

Bella is gorgeous, but then Im a bulldog lover. Your photography is really getting amazing. Poor Tucker, bulldogs are a bit bullyish we still have to monitor Bob closely during play time and he doesnt go to dog parks and the like. They make up for it with their cuteness and their bullheaded bounciness
