Road Trip to Saratoga, Part II, Saratoga Spa State Park

On our first evening in Saratoga, we brought Finn to the Saratoga Spa State Park.  This place is beautiful and dog-friendly.  Plenty of paths to walk down, plenty of trees to sniff, plenty of history to read too.

Uh Finn, this isn’t a dog whose butt you are supposed to sniff.  *sigh*

    If it’s standing there, Finn, you’ve every right to sniff it! You never know what other dog christened it.

    What a wonderful trip.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

    hey Finn,

    What a pretty park! Looks perfect for a walkie with the humans, and I bet there are lots of pee-mails to sniff/read!

    Love the foal statue! And Finn, you gave me my laugh for the day! Such a great photo! Sniffing a statue bum! BOL!

    I would have sniffed that horse’s butt too… IF I could have reached that high.
    We are glad that you had a nice place to have a walkie. ALSO good that you kept your dad on the walkin string… gotta keep them safe…esp. when so far from home. RIGHT?

    You know Finn, if that horse was real, it’s be sniffing your butt, so turn about is fair play!
    Glad you enjoyed the park. It is a beautiful one, that’s for sure.
