splish splash at shirlington dog park.

we've heard so much about shirlington dog park but never had the opportunity to go. there is a creek just below the dog park where dog owners let their dogs loose so they can cool off and play in the water. we haven't done that sort of thing since taking piri to rock creek park a few years ago when we were living in maryland and so we thought sunday would be a good day to go by and check it out. and boy were we glad we did. 

once we got down to the creek area we lazied around making tiny splashes and cooling off in the water. piri literally just went in {even though he hates getting his paws wet} and just laid there for a while. 

summer is definitely upon us and i couldn't be more excited {my favorite season}! but now that piri is older it's a bit harder for him to venture out with us all the time. we are a little bit more mindful of what types of activities we plan on doing with him during the summer months but for sure we'll be coming here to beat the humidity and scorching hot weather.
 // it's all zen right here. doggy meditations are the cutest thing, no?//

  6. Looks like such a wonderful place for dogs and humans. I know I'd definitely bring Stella and Liberty there! Piri looks so cute laying in the water on the rocks. I hate that our dogs have to grow old. When I took Liberty to the vet last, they said I needed to give her a "senior" checkup! =( -Jess L

  8. Ace would've plopped right down in the water as well. I have to be mindful of where I take him as well because in the summer he gets so hot. Love these photos.

  12. What a great dog park! I have been to some but none of them had a creek running through them! They are very popular on the west coast, not as big on the east coast. but that is starting to change.

  13. Looks like Piri really enjoyed cooling down in the creek. He does really appear to be having a zen moment in the pic with his eyes closed. So cute.

  16. Love Piri's zen moment, so adorable. What a beautiful park, I love places like that, so much fun especially for the summer. I wish we have places like that where we're at, but we're in a drought right now, so all the creek beds are dried up.
