Novato public schools are back in session, and Duke, our beloved Laborator / Pointer mix is very happy that he gets to go to Dogbone Meadows Dog Park to see his best friend, Hunter, again. Since Dogbone Dog Park is in the opposite direction of my house in Partridge Knolls, San Marin Area, to my work, Frank Howard Allen Realtors, Duke only gets to go there after I drop my younger son off at the local school which is just a block away from the park. This means Duke has not been there for quite sometime 😦
The park is very popular, lots of dogs and their humen go there to hang out with their buddies. The place can get overwhelming for Duke and I late afternoons after work. I love going there in the mornings where things are calm, and there are only a few familiar dogs and very responsible dog owners. We enjoy seeing each other and catching up. And Duke! He is in heaven! You can not find a happier dog (o.k. maybe the other dogs at Dogbone Dog Park).
See the following for info about the very premier Dogbone Dog Park, Duke and his best friend, Hunter! I still need to take some pictures later in the day when the sky is blue and bright.
—————————————————————————————————————–Dogbone Meadows Dog Park in Novato, Marin County, located en route to Stafford Lake and West Marin, dogs often bring their people when they are on the way to the beaches. The dog park is right accross from Novato Chase luxury homes, is probably the best dog park in Marin County, or maybe even California. Due to the great location and the natural surroundings, there are talks of starting the first community garden in Novato next to the dog park.
Built by dog loving volunteers (or shall we say, slaves of dogs), the property is around 1 acre, with tracks for dogs and human alike, toys and exercise stations (the hoops, loops, bridges, jumps, tubs, etc) for dogs only. The volunteers planted trees for shade, put down benches and , water fountains, , porchesThe backdrop is Open Space, part ofO’Hare Park, great hiking, horseback riding trails.
This is a morning with unusual heavy fog from West Marin, a beautiful background for the dog park.
Duke (black with white spots, rescued from 2nd Chance Rescue) and Hunter (Golden, dapper with his red bandana – he has a whole collection of those) love to come here in the morning – Duke, after dropping his brother off at local high school, and Hunter, after dragging his mom for his daily 2 hour walk and play (can’t say Hunter does not have a GREAT life, even Duke is envious of him!) – Hunter will chase the tennis ball and Duke will run along Hunter.
Makes Happy Dogs and Happy people when their dogs are tired the rest of, the day!
It’s a foggy morning, but I thought it’s interesting, so I snapped the pictures.

Time to chase the ball!
Duke’s best friend, Hunter, whose only passion is chasing the tennis ball!
