The dog park is usually closed until 11 a.m. for maintenance on Thursdays, but not this week.
Whether you need your kids, spouse or dog out of the house while you're preparing for Thanksgiving dinner (and you don't want the dog to snatch up the Turkey like in A Christmas Story) you can send the whole family to Bow Wow Beach bright and early Thursday. The dog park is usually closed until 11 a.m Thursday. But for the holiday, the beach will be open at 8 a.m. Send the family out to work up an appetite before feasting! Editor's note: For fun, we uploaded the video clip of the dogs taking the turkey in A Christmas Story. Enjoy! Anyone ever have that happen in real life?
