Walk-n-Talk – and BARK – this Sunday!
It’s Walk-n-Talk time.
It’s also Dog Park time.
Our friends at WABI Burien have decided to combine the two with a ‘Walk-n-Talk-n-Bark’ event this Sunday, Dec. 1!
Also – did you know that Burien is in the running for the 2013 Beneful Dream Dog Park $500,000 Makeover Contest? We’re the only finalist in Washington State!
Until Dec. 5, you can also “VOTE DAILY FOR KELLIE AND BAILEY”, casting a vote for Burien’s “Pirate Pup Beach” dog park. Vote now!
Local B-Town D.O.G. (Dog Owners Group), headed by Kellie and her dog Bailey, wants to create a “Pirate Pup Beach” at the new dog park at Lakeview Park, on 160th.
“I would do a pirate themed park with a large and small “oceans”, walk the plank agility see saw, a “sunken” ship to climb on. Sandy beach around the water features for the pups to tear around in and a grassy area for those landlubber doggies who just want to run and fetch. They could jump or climb up over sized seashells. I’d also have a place for their humans to sit and interact sitting at driftwood tables with treasure chest benches. A drinking trough would be filled by a whale blow hole fountain.”
Watch this video reenactment of Bailey’s dream:
