Bark in the Park

One game a year, the NY Mets open a section of seating to dogs!  Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the North Shore Animal League.  We have been waiting very patiently, and watching the weather, and yesterday morning we were off to see the Mets take on the San Francisco Giants!  We were told to be at our gate by 12pm so we could go on a doggie parade around the warning track of the field.

So we got there.  And waited...

and met some serious Mets fans...

and waited....

and finally we got in!  And look who is hosting the ceremonies...Ron Darling!  (He was a Mets pitcher in the 80s).  I got within arm's length of him!  

Look at all the people who came out with their dogs!

Whoa!  We hung out and waited for the parade...

Here we go!

And then we were shown to our seats, but not before Finn met the other goldens at the park.

Finn laid down in the shade under our seats, and we got to enjoy the game!

And the Mets won!  5-4!  We were shocked!

Thanks to Natural Balance for our cool loot too!

    a pawsome day for the game :)

  9. OH No Finn?! Your a Mets fan?! I won't tell my Dad but will tell you this....I am so excited you got to go to the ball game...they would never take me cause I don't play nice sometimes....but will also tell you this that the Yankees don't do this. Wonder if he's switch over:)

  10. WOW, what an awesome idea for the Mets to do. I love that proceeds go towards a good cause and my favorite is that there is a doggy parade- so cool! What could be better than baseball with your dog?

  14. Finn, you are a lucky dog. That sounds like great fun. Did you get a hotdog to eat? No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  15. Finn....
    Oh my goodness!! That sounded like so much fun!! We are huge baseball fans around here, and my favorite team is the Boston Red Sox!! Yes.... I did notice your owner's hat!! ;)
    I am not sure if my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE Beagle/German Shepherd cross, Rose, would have enjoyed it, though.... Too many people, dogs, tempting "human" foods, and fans screaming!! ;op

  16. WOW that sure looks fun! I'd have to be carried though, you wouldn't believe how many times I've been stepped on in crowds!

  17. Wow! What a full day YOU had Finn!! It would take us about eight hours to drive to the stadium, but it would have been fun to be in a parade along with the other dogs! And you even got a bunch of cool treats!!! Paws UP! xoxo Chloe and LadyBug

  18. What a cool event. Sounds like fun and it benefits a worthy cause.

  19. Wow thats awesome,I so hope I can work up to that with Haylie one day. Our local hockey team here has a dog night and I would love to take her but there are soooo many kids that there is no way she is ready for that now. :) Thanks for stopping by! Finn is our hero!

  20. hey Finn,

    Oh my dog - that is SO pawsome! How very cool of the Mets to host such a pawsome event! It looked like so much fun, especially walking around the field before the game. And the treats - what a great stash of yummies! :->

    Thanks for sharing your pawsome day! Such great pics! And furry happy your team won!

  22. That is so great that you got to go to the ballpark! I have wanted to do this with the Newfs but when our ballpark has a day like this for the pooches it is aways in the middle of summer and too hot for them!

  23. That is so cool to be able to bring your poochie to a baseball game! How fun can that be?! Looks like a perfectly wonderful day you had too.
