This was the Barking Park near Atlanta when we went. It was dusk but there was lots of pups and people, everyone was super nice. It wasn’t to much of a dog park, it had two sides a small and a large. No benches but did have a doggy water found. It was big enough to play some frisbee or ball, and had a few trees. But from our trip, it was one of the most popular parks we had visited in the Atlanta area.

Early Friday morning Mom and Dad woke us up…well they didn’t really wake us up, we were already excited and knew that from the bags that had been packed for a week we were in for a treat!!
We jumped in the car, with quite a few suitcases and headed off!
