Have you been to the Randall Dog Park? It's located just south of Randall Park in Yakima and take it from Tater, my Golden Retriever, your dog is going to love it!

Even as the weather turns colder, the dogs and their owners just keep coming out for a chance to roam around the spacious dog park, visit with other dog lovers, throw a ball for whatever dog happens to feel like running after one and getting a breath of fresh air!

First things first. Tater needs to get a lay of the land and sniff out a good place to go.

Then it's time for the first ambassador of the welcoming committee to check Tater in.

Randall Dog Park has plenty of parking and a really nice space for dogs to run, play, make pit stops - easily picked up and dropped in several waste barrels on the grounds.

Tater finds that he gravitates toward friends he's seen more than once at the park. But, all the dogs seem eager to meet one another.

We have witnessed very, very few incidents of aggression among the dogs at the park. Sure, there is wrestling and a few growls and barks here and there, but for the most park responsible dog owners seem to equal well-behaved dogs.

Today, after we returned home, Tater had run after so many balls and had played with so many of his doggo friends, that he only had the energy sufficient to stop by his favorite espresso stand for a pup-cup and then crash as soon as we got home!
