I took Betty to the dog park on Tuesday.

The dog park has the double gate system. The people at the dog park use the system properly.


There is a gap under one of the gates. It is apparently large enough for Betty to sneak through.

Insert heart attack emoji here…

I am SOOOOO eternally grateful to the woman who managed to grab Betty when she saw her running loose.

I am grateful to all those at the dog park who took the time to calm me down.

It was the worst feeling in the world to worry that something bad is going to happen to your dog- a thousand horrible scenarios popped into my head. I’m still a bit freaked out.

  1. I’m so glad Betty is okay! I’m visiting my kids next week and my daughter said I could go with her to the dog park, only if I promise not to freak out. Apparently Waffles the pug likes to hang out in the big dog park with pit bulls. I’m not thankful that Waffles had surgery and isn’t allowed to go for a few weeks, but…

  2. I’m glad you got your Betty back safely! It reminds me of a time I was at one of our kids’ peewee football games and my youngest was playing with a friend on the other side of the field. They were pretty young, but the other mom and I could see them and the area was fenced in, separating it from a railroad track. But they suddently went out of sight and of course, there was an opening underneath the fence and they got through. They came right back through to our side but that was the end of my nerves and of them playing over there.

    1. I felt like I was in slow motion…I saw her go under the gate and I felt myself scream….update though. My daughter took her to the park yesterday and they fixed the netting that goes below the gate, so no dog should be able to get out
