It's with mixed emotions that I write an article about our dogs. If you follow my posts you saw recently that we lost our dog recently. Dexter lived a long and happy life and we were blessed to have had him with us for 18 years. I do wanna say a big shout-out to the Emergency Vets who were there for Dexter they were fantastic and helped us through this difficult time. Also a big thank you to you at home who sent your warm regards it was very much appreciated.

According to Google, "Wantage Dog Park is the largest dog park in the tri-state area. This eight-acre park is divided into fenced-in areas for big, small, and older dogs. Your pet will enjoy an agility course, plenty of toys, and fresh well water."

This is one large dog park and it's a 90-minute drive from the Jersey Shore. This park is sure to not only give your pup a good workout, but you should get your steps in as well.
