Parks and Markets

Every Saturday morning there's a farmers' market in the old Everleigh Rail Yards now redeveloped as the Carriageworks complex. Dogs on leashes are regular visitors at the market.

I've been bringing the boys down here for a few weeks - there's plenty of smells and market excitement for them to begin their weekend outings. Sometimes I get bones for Munson from one of the stall-holders.

Victoria Park

This particular weekend, a Bark in the Park event was held in nearby Victoria Park nest to the University of Sydney, so we had an easy walk from one venue to the next. It's a bit more commercial than BITP events that Bondi and I attended in Seattle due to a single sponsor dominating the proceedings, but it was lovely to see so many people out with their well-behaved dogs in an inner city park.

Munson encountered one of his regular playmates: Dash is a Staffie girl about the same as Munson. She was one of the first staffie pups to practice the ritual of putting her head in Munson's mouth - it seems to be quite the thing for staffies when they meet Munson.
