Birthday wish - Dog parks

There are not many parks in Malaysia that welcomes dogs. This may be attributed to the multi-racial society we live in. A quick search on the internet reveal two dog-friendly parks - Sentul Park and Bandar Utama Central Park. Unfortunately, the park in my suburb is off-limits to dogs. If anyone out there knows of any others, please drop a note on my comment box. As a result, for most dogs, myself included, daily walks are normally just around the housing estate. My humans also have to be creative to find places for doggie outings. More often than not, this would be at places where there are not many other humans.

Since my birthday is coming up soon(I turn 6 this Tuesday), my wish is for Malaysia to have dog parks. My humans have come across dog parks in their travels. Dog parks are more popular in the western nations, e.g, Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada. Dog parks are more than just a place where dogs are allowed. It is purpose built for dogs and their humans - it is a place where we can run off-leash and play fetch with our humans; a place where our humans don't have to put up with dirty looks or get told off for bringing us; a place where we can socialise with our friends in a secure environment. Ok, realistically my wish probably won't be fulfilled by next Tuesday, but maybe some day. I know that some dog lovers in Subang are trying to work out a proposal for a dog park in their suburb. Good on them! I wish them success.

Meanwhile, I think I'll persuade my humans to take me hiking in the hills for my birthday treat...
