Information on the Colorado Springs real estate market and enjoyable places to visit in the Pikes Peak Region.
Hello my name is Sullivan, but my friends call me Sully. I want to share all of my fantastic adventures around Colorado Springs with you. I am six year old Yellow Labrador Retriever, but I have the energy of a six month old puppy.
Every morning I wake Mike up with a big, fat, slobbery kiss and thank my lucky stars that I live in one of the most dog-friendly cities in the country. The Pikes Peak Region is home to many breathtaking sights, friendly people and endless adventures.
One of my all time favorite adventures to go on is to the Bear Creek Dog Park, which is located at the base of the foothills in beautiful southwest Colorado Springs. Just this morning I gave Mike the “puppy eyes” (which I have perfected) and persuaded him to take my sister, Benelli, and me there. He even rolled down the window on the way so I could breathe in the crisp mountain air and let the wind flap my ears.
We jumped out of the car and ran straight for the basket full of donated tennis balls. Mike grabbed a ball and some baggies from the dog house baggie station (just in case I have an accident…or two…) I ran free of any restraints throughout the entire fenced-in, 25 acre park. There are several small trails to explore and lots of benches and picnic tables for Mike to relax on. I made my usual rounds and said hello to Louie and Ullr, and I even met a hot little Husky named Zami. All the running and sniffing made me hot and sweaty, so I charged into Bear Creek for a cold drink and refreshing dip. We took another walk around the ¾ mile loop so I had time to dry off before getting back into the car.
On the way out of the park, I passed by the 2 acre fenced-in area for small dogs only. That is one area of the park that I don’t need to explore. For one, I’m too big, but in all honesty, I am a big baby and those little dogs kind of scare me. Mike decided it was time to put the leash back on and say good-bye to the park, but I could have stayed there all day. (I hope I see Zami again soon.)
Nap time is calling, so I am signing off until my next adventure…
