Rio San Gabriel Doggie Park

Henry and I had a great time at the Rio San Gabriel Dog Park.  Its in Downey California about nine miles away from our house.  I didn't know it existed until I started searching for news about the new dog park in the pre-building phase in Whittier.

When we first went into the "below 15" at the shoulder" compound, Henry acted like he was attached to me with a tether.  Any distance over ten feet sent him scurrying back to mama - tempted but not ready to commit.

Although my boy was a bit hesitant at first, in the end Henry and I both thought it was great, and we will be visiting it again.  The dogs and their owners were all friendly.

The cute little lady on the top right was Henry's favorite.  He seemed to think she was just the right size and she must have smelled great, because there was lots to doggie sniffing going on. 

The pups didn't do a lot of chasing and running - okay, I must admit I was hoping to get out of our exercise today - they just seemed to want to hang out together.  There was a lot of wandering going on.


  1. What a nice place. I only like doggie parks with no dogs. BOL
    I know Downey

  2. Ah Lily, they were really nice. I think a cutie like you would be okay!
