If Sparky or Lou Lou had play dates planned with their canine friends in Bettendorf, you might want to make other arrangements.

Bettendorf Parks and Rec department want you to know they've closed all of the city's dog parks after all the rain in the area.

According to their Facebook page the squishy muddy conditions aren't ideal for Fido. I haven't seen a formal closure from the rest of the QCA dog parks, but I'd guess conditions are similar. Watch the Bettendorf Parks and Rec social media  posts to see when the parks reopen.

Does anyone have a treadmill my pup can borrow?
