Dog run at a rest stop – amazing!
Not that my dogs are lazy but I do worry they don’t get enough exercise while we are traveling from here to there. I guess there are others that share my concern because at a Rest Stop on I-35 near Blackwell, OK we were delighted to find these dog runs. Count them – Two runs!
They’re big, with a footprint of that of a house, and little shade but with grass and benches, they were such a delight for puppies and people. A great place to stretch both human and canine legs. An interesting observation of the rest stops of this area, whether in Oklahoma or Texas, each has some feature targeting a segment of the traveling populations. There were playgrounds, ramada topped picnic table, dog runs, and such.
We aren’t thrilled about traveling on an Interstate. The boring repetitiveness of the scenery, the heavy truck traffic, and high speed limits have us preferring the US highways or “blue roads”. However, with the diversity of the Rest Stops we saw maybe our opinion might change. (Not likely but at least who knows. LOL)
