Over our end of summer break we went to Brooklyn's Prospect Park to check out their famous dog beach and dog friendly green spaces. Even though we lived in Brooklyn years ago and the hounds Grand Dad still lives in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn we had never been to the park. It is not a traditional "dog park" in fact their is a leash law in effect from 9 am to 9 pm but it seems that it is not enforced. The result, since this is a large green space transformed into a doggie paradise. I didn't see a single unpicked up poo or dog fight. We brought only our three pugs since Bob and Norbert can be somewhat unpredictable with off leash dogs. I also kept Weasley leashed since I'm not 100% confident of his recall. I think its the fact that ever single dog guardian I saw in the park seemed to know the dog and respectful of other people's dogs that keeps this place so wonderful. Of course I can only speak from one visit but the idyllic sight of all those happy dogs and happy humans was definitely one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen, unfortunately my phone pictures don't do it justice, and I can't wait to course back. Of course Tubby, Ping, and Weasley loved it too.
After we we played in the park we visited the delicious Pie Shop Four and Twenty Black Birds.
They have the best pie and I love this sign they have hanging outside their shop.
If like me you are a fan of the TV show Twin Peaks, you may remember this is a reference to a famous line from that show.
