When my parents choose this house to rent, they were told and saw that the largest park in Cuenca was just five or six blocks from the house. So as soon as we got here mom had to show me this park. When we got to the park mom and dad saw the following sign from the street.
At any rate, mom was elated to find we could go in and discover this place. And so we did! I was so proud of her for trying once more. Look at me, this is my I"'m proud of my mom" face.
This is a park, I'm telling you. It's called El Paraiso (Paradise) and a paradise it is. It's a very big park. Lots of sports fields for kids to play in, a duck pond, lots of green space and trees and flowers, and of course the river. It's a real special place and I'm sure we'll be going there every day.
This park is so big that we may be able to find a place to play ball off leash. We saw some dogs doing that. It will be awesome to have a place to run, that's one thing I really miss. Mom told me she may try to see if they can dedicate a space to a dog park. Who knows! What I would really love to see is some real agility equipment. Mom makes me jump logs and rocks serve in place of the table ... it's a joke really, but I go along with her. I miss my agility classes, my doggie friends and my agility teacher, Robert. He was the best. Maybe I can get him to come visit. I'm not the best agility dog there is, but I have fun. My classmate, Dancer, on the other hand is something else. I loved to watch him go. He is wild. Boy I sure miss agility. Hopefully we can find a place where we can practice here.
Now, I thought you would like to see for yourself how beautiful this park is; so, I've included some pictures below.
And, of course mom had to take a picture of the ducks....
So boring... I just had to yawn ...
