Almost everyone has a four-legged friend they care about. Even if it’s not yours, spending time with animals can put a big smile on anyone’s face. I was recently fortunate to get to spend some time with my friend’s dog named Belle. She is 7 years old and tends to snort all the time, which I found rather amusing.
Having a dog in town can be tough if your backyard doesn’t have a fence, and most of us students don’t even have yards. Conveniently for the residents of Menomonie, there happens to be an off leash dog park just west of town, over the river.
This dog park is quite the place. It has a very large loop for walking your prized pooch about, and a separate area for small dogs (less than 25 lbs). Both are fenced in, of course. From my experiences at places like this, the dogs love it.
While at the park, you will be able to socialize with other dogs, and it also happens to be conveniently located about 20 feet from the Brickyard Disc Golf course. The recent spring-like weather really makes being outside pleasant again, and heading over to the dog park is a fantastic way to enjoy the change of the season. Be sure to clean up after your dogs!
