Dog Park

Ten Feet Off Beale at the Dog Park

This is Harrison. He's a mutt that has very quickly taken a very special place in my heart. If you sit on the floor, he will be in your lap. If you leave, he waits for you to come back. If he hears a strange noise, he tilts his head to the side. If you take him to the park, he'll play with other dogs but keep coming back to where you're standing just to say hello.

When I started dating Jeremy, I knew Harrison came along with him and now I can't imagine life without either of them.

Anyways, back to the dog park. Shelby Farms has an amazzzzzing off leash dog park. It is huge! (that's what she said) Jeremy and I took Harrison out there on Saturday to stretch his legs and play with other dogs. Even though he wonders around without his leash on, it's so funny to me that he never lets us out of his sight.

He made some friends, but didn't want to get too far away from us. At one point, Jeremy starting petting a huge great dane and Harrison did not like that! I don't know if he felt intimidated or was protecting Jeremy, but it was pretty funny. Luckily, the great dane thought he was playing and didn't go into attack mode. Harrison would have been toast.

There were hay bales. Obviously we stopped for a photo op. Harrison really understands the model walk. I mean, he was clearly doing it better than me!

PS. This wasn't our first time at this dog park! Read about the first time here!


  1. I love love love the dog park. My furboys love it, too!

  2. We love going there, but usually have to stick to the Overton Dog Park if we want our dog off-leash! Harrison looks like a sweetheart!

  3. Aww! I wish our doggy would ride in a car long enough to go to Shelby Farms for the afternoon with us. We are taking little baby trips with her, like around the corner, lol.

  4. What a cutie! I always mean to take our Cosmo to the dog park--so much fun, but it does take a little planning!

  5. We went to Shelby Farms for the first time a few weeks ago, and it was beautiful!! I was pretty impressed.

  6. that's such a cool dog park! love the hay bales!

  7. What a handsome pup!! Dogs are the best :) I'm glad Mr. Harrison has a mommy in his life now, very important ;)

  8. Aww Harrison is adorable!! We have two pups and they are the furry loves of my life. But they don't get to go to dog parks because they are wild and crazy maniacs and bad to the bone. For real.


  9. What a beautiful space! And you both totally have the model walk down, have you thought of entering in ANTM?


  10. He's such a cutie! I want a dog so badly!!! That dog park sounds like a blast!

  11. What a dog park! It looks like there is so much space it doesn't even look like a park.
