Hottest Pawty in the Madison Area!

Posted by GerrysMom in Uncategorized    

This past Sunday I met Max and Edward and their human mom Meg at the dog park in Badger Prairie Park in Verona, WI, near my home in Madison, WI.  AND we all met Callie (not sure how it’s spelled) too!  She couldn’t stay long.  She had come early and was out of water and ready to go home.  But we did have some time tovisit and drink water together.  Mom gave her mom a bandana and told her about Tripawds and she sounded excited to check out the website.

Then, when Callie had to go, Max, Edward and I continued on.  My grandma even came to visit with cookies for the humans.  That didn’t seem right at a party for dogs that only the people got the treats, but I’m on a restricted diet now anyway, so I’m more indignant on Max and Edward’s behalf.  It was sweet of Grandma to stop by at all though, I guess.  She’s a busy lady.

I then promptly disappeared.  I double-backed to the entrance to make sure there wasn’t anyone else to greet.  Boy did that wear me out though!  It was really hot.  Mom says with the heat index it broke 90 degrees – whatever that means.  Mom helped me strip off my harness and bandana at that point, because she was afraid I was too hot to catch up to my guests, who were waiting further in the park.  So me and the boys drank a lot of water and eventually claimed ourselves a picnic table.  Max was very good at defending it so that we’d have plenty of shade.  Though at times he did let smaller dogs visit with us.

Mom says I have to draw your attention to the cutest part of the video she took.  (Really I think the humans find any bit with little Edward in it is the “cutest”).  But apparently at one point, he was playing with my tail.  I thought I felt something.

Alright on to the video and pictures you’ve all been waiting for:

Edward the Honorary Tripawd!

Three Legged Max - the smartest of us!




  1. Wow, what a great pawty! You sure have a lot of friends. You guys look like you a good time, it does look like it was kinda hot.

    I think it’s a must to get your harness off as soon as you get to the dog park, don’t want anything slowing us down, we got places to go and dogs to meet!

    Thanks for the sharing your pictures, Edward looks like a pretty cool friend.

    Take care, Shelby, the P.P.

  4. What fun! You guys look like you got along great, that is soooo wonderful.

    Gerry, your tongue just cracks me up, I didn’t realize it had so many spots on it. Wow!

    Thanks for getting together you guys, it’s so neat to think that another Tripawds Chapter has come together and had a great time. We hope there’s many more pawties to come!

  5. The Madison Pawty looks like it was lots of fun! I’m going to get my mom to check her calendar to see if some of the dates you mentioned in June will work for us. I wonder if I could learn to drive by then so I can just drive myself if mom is busy?

    Mom thought the part of your video where Edward is watching and playing with your tail was adorable. You are so cool always, Gerry – even when it’s hot out!

    Sending lots of hugs from your pal Holly Jolly!
