Who comes to see the World’s Biggest Beagle?

That is a question often asked of us during media interviews or by drop-in visitors to Dog Bark Park.  Our reply is usually short but true, “The world, & people just like you.” 

Guest dog Miffy the beagle from Chicago

 

Today our visitors included two gents from Scotland on a whirlwind drive across America, a car full of young folks from Pocatello, a couple from California, a truck driver & his wife on vacation from Nampa, a guy from Nevada returning home after attending a Univ. of Idaho Vandals football game (UofI won!), a geocacher, and pug owners from California.  Some came because seeing the World’s Two Biggest Beagles was on their agenda; others were drive-by drop-ins.  
Miffy came from Chicago recently with his human parents, Nisha & Sascha, who have been teaching in America for about five years.  After reading an article about Dog Bark Park in the Chicago Tribune they planned a vacation to Idaho to include a two-night stay in the big beagle.  Miffy and Sprocket, our resident golden retriever and ambassador-in-training at Dog Bark Park, enjoyed some spirited play together.

Guests Vikram & his parents from India w/Dennis

Our first guests from India also visited recently.  Vikram & his parents were travelling around western US & he went to great lengths for the visit to Dog Bark Park to be a total surprise for his folks.  Dennis & I enjoy helping to plan surprise or special occassion visits for our guests.
Recently an Austrian magazine published an article about architectural wonders around the world. Included was a photo of Dog Bark Park sandwiched between images of Pisa, the Eiffel Tower & the Roman Coliseum.  Never would we have imagined to be in such esteemed company!
