Welcome to the Trump International Doggy Park!


My Nature Walkie this week took me from Balmedie Country Park, through the sand dunes and on to the Trump International Golf Course Doggy Park.

To say I had a spring in my step would be an understatement.

Totally deserted, it's a great place for social distancing.

And although the chemical-drenched greens and fairways are far from nature-friendly, we will admit (in the spirit of reconciliation) that they provide a welcome dose of greenery in grey January.

Golfers? What golfers? This is a doggy park, right?

Happy Nature Friday friends! Thanks again to Rosy and the Gang for hosting the blog hop.

  2. Way to go Bertie! Did you take your bucket and spade and have fun in the sand bunker?
    I hope you "christened" the greens liberally. If I'd been with you I would have helped - and being a lady and spayed, I understand my "christening" would have had a devastating effect on that artificial colour!
    Still it was a nice walk for you, you lucky boy. Will there be lots more Trump Doggy Parks in future, do you think?

    Love,

  5. I had no idea you lived close to a Trump course, it is perfect for you and I hope you left a lot of STUFF all over the place... it is perfect for a dog park, maybe they will do that permanently. you look wonderful and full of vim, vigor and vitality

    1. Bertie has a proud record of objecting to Donald Trump and his golf course, going back to well before he became president. E.g. see: https://bouncingbertie.blogspot.com/2010/07/we-hate-donald-trump.html

  6. You don't have steps to put a spring in because you were flying over the golf course. Dogs aren't supposed to be on a golf course, so flying over was a perfect choice! Happy weekend!

  7. You did a great job using that golf course as we're sure it should really be used. Like a few others we hope you left some deposits that maybe the large orange man could step in. BOL!

  8. OMDs Bertie you are channeling your inner Springer Spaniel today. I had a big grin on my face as I scrolled through your photos. I think you should have a socially distancing WFT gathering. Hugs to you and Gail

  9. If I may be indelicate, Bertie, I hope you left an appropriate deposit, or two.

    Oh yeaaaahhhhhhh, Bertie lad, well done on making the most of the park. Most pleasant, even in the gloom!!! BTW, I think you might find Gail less inclined to offer you European trips in the future, based on the costs suggested <in this article!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
