Well, I was wrong. It seems like bad planning to me, but no dogs are allowed on the trail (except seeing eye dogs). There's just a small strip of land where they're allowed to be. I was disappointed, and I don't think we'll be going back. Ebon was a bit too. He prefers pavement to grass for some reason, and kept trying to go to it. The "dog exercise area" is less than half the length of the trail if you include going out and back from the parking lot.
In addition, here's some footage of the cats being odd. I have a lot of pillows and they decided one of them was the best thing in the whole wide world. Jen is to the left, Ash to the right.
I'm also having an interesting debate with myself about how to deal with the Thanksgiving holiday. I'm leaving early tomorrow for my grandparents' house and I don't quite know how I'm going to handle the blog while I'm away. We'll see. I do have some posts prepared.
