Barbie and Ken go to the Dog Park

Today Barbie and Ken went to the Dog Park with their dog Wilson.

They read the rules carefully to Wilson.

Barbie was a little worried about how BIG some of the dogs were.

It was a nice park with shady trees, grass and dirt and bark-chips and even a "fire-hydrant" water fountain for the dogs...
Since the park was an "off-leash" park, Barbie and Ken sat on a bench in the shade and watched the dogs run and play.
A nice old dog named Abby came and sat beside them.

Wilson was faster than all the other big dogs! It was fun to see him run so fast.

But then Wilson did his doggy "business" and Ken gallantly offered to clean it up.

He had a little difficulty getting the clean-up bags out of the dispenser however, and almost hung himself! Typical guy, he neglected to read the directions.

When Ken was done cleaning up the poo, he threw a giant foam ball for the dogs. It was difficult for him to throw it very far, since it was such a huge ball, but the dogs didn't seem to mind.
Unfortunately, one dog thought that Ken was just another plastic chew toy and chewed on Ken's head instead!!
Poor Ken. Barbie reminded Ken that rule #8 said "Use the park at your own risk." Be careful Ken.

Fortunately, Ken doesn't have much inside his head, it bounced back into shape just fine.
His hairstyle was a little smushed though. He said it didn't even hurt! Barbie thought he was just acting tough...

When it was time to leave they got Wilson some more water; Barbie told Ken he really should wash the dog slobber out of his hair because it was making his hair stick up.
Ken told Barbie his hair looked like that regardless of what he did. Barbie gave up trying to give Ken hairstyle advice.

Wilson looks similar to my neighbor's jack russell who is unbelievably fast. She tells me he speeds down the hall and runs along the vertical part of the couch "Matrix" style.
