Gumbo and Roux, outstanding in their field

Ever since Gumbo, Roux and our granddog Lucy discovered the wonderful dog park operated by East Baton Rouge Parish's recreation department, we've been itchin' to start one here. (See our other post below about the Baton Rouge dog park!)

Doesn't matter that half the folks in our world don't even believe in leash laws. We want to participate in developing a safe, fun, place for our animals to run and play with each other. Our "city digs" have a fenced back yard, but border collies need room to romp, so we regularly travel to a nearby park for some good ball chasin'.

I've located an under-used public park, and contacted the mayor about the possibility. He seemed amenable to the idea, so we'll see. I'll keep you posted as this develops.

We took Gumbo and Roux out to test our theory -- is there enough land for a good dog park? They ran and ran and ran -- chasing the ball so much that Roux finally said: "I've had enough."

She took the ball, went to the Jeep and sat down by the door.
