Mommy keeps tellin us 'bout this place, and she said she had daddy convinced to go next time.
I asked her to go--pleeeeeeeeezzzzz--but we can't. She said something about it being her and daddy's versary--don't know what that means, but I guess it does NOT mean going to the park.

Maybe next time?????

Baylee- it will be at the same place as last time. IF your parents feel comfortable with it, I can drive up that way to pick you and Ringo up, and, of course, drop you back off at home. Maybe if they still aren't comfortable meeting me just one time, we could meet some place between Cinti and Columbus before then, and become better acquainted? Background check? He he he....

Binx and I will be there!

I want to come, but I just don't know. We are planning on comming to Columbus,Ohio August 15-17 to camp with some friends.

So I don't know if hubby would want to make two trips to Ohio in one month. I'll see what he says. If we do go I'm just going to bring Ginger. Ruff don't do to good with long trips.

:eek: two trips to Ohio in one month. ..

Tina ~

That would be a *lotta* driving! :(

According ot MapQuest -

Union, WV to Columbus, OH is 350 miles and about 6 hours...

Union, WV to Findlay, OH is 440 miles and about :eek: 8 hours.

But you'd know most of the route!
MapQuest sends you back through Columbus to get to Findlay! :p

Suggestion:
Camp in Columbus an extra 2 weeks -
then the drive to Findlay would only take a couple hours!

:rolleyes:

Karen

I'm pretty sure we'll be able to come, barring unforseen emergencies ... or one of us having to work that Monday (which has happened in the past ...)

Cincy'sMom
07-19-2003, 06:03 PM
We aren't sure yet what we are doing that weekend.
Normally, we have a cook our at our house, but that could easily be Saturday.

Another thought is that Ralph and I have been trying to plan a trip to Vegas for quite some time and Toledo is getting a new airline w/ raelly good rates, starting that weekend. Since neither of us gets a lot of vacation time, working a trip in on a 3 day weekend, might be the best option for us (question will be hotel prices ona Holiday weekend)

So I guess we are a definate maybe :)

Man once again, feeling very left out :D and there's no way I could even attempt to make it. According to mapquest it's a whopping 3256.31 km away which translates to 50 hours, 3 minutes I get there late and then have to turn around. :D

This time I'm working harder on Dustin! So :p


According to Yahoo Maps it's:
545.7 miles
and
8 hours 23 mins

but that's taking us straight thru Indianapolis, which is bad for us little country folk. Anyone know of a way to bypass there?
Thanks in advance!

Do you have an address to the bark park so I could use mapquest and see how long it would take from my house!!

Thanks!!

For you Out-of-Townerz trying to find the BarkPark ~

You're looking for the "K-9 Field of Dreams Dog Park"...
Located behind Pavilion # 7,
inside the Hancock (County) Parks "Riverbend Recreation Area"...
Just SOUTH of Ohio route 568...
ON Marion Township Road 208...
about 5 miles South West from downtown Findlay, Ohio.

If you follow the instructions below (from another Thread) -
You can see and/or Print (must use a color printer) a series of Very Detailed area maps that show all the local Township, County, and State roads. You might want to shift (left & right; up & down) slightly to see all the township road Numbers and Names on the zoomed-in maps - but the zoom-in detail is excellent!

GO TO: http://www.mapquest.com

Click on their *Maps* link - you'll get a fill-in-the-blanks form ~

In "Address/Intersection" -
type in "township 207 AND township 208"
(without the quotes).

In "City" put Findlay; in "State" put OH;
no Zippy Code required.

MapQuest will pop up a super-zoomed-in little map -
shows a square corner of the reservoir and the two roads Twp 207 & Twp 208...
Just about where the "208" block is shown is almost *Zaktly* where the BarkPark iz, just below or south of where Twp 208 hangs a 90 degree turn to the left (west)!!

You can use the "Big Map" clicker to blow things up and cut down on the ads showing... then Zoom Out to get a better idea of "where" you are.

Zoom out slowly - too many jumps and you'll be seeing half of the USA!

After you look at the map -
You can click on "Driving Directions" and reference the Location you entered for the map, and your Home Address -
MapQuest will then display a set of Turn-By-Turn Driving Directions.

-----------------------------------------------

And ALL the important intersections *DO* have signs with either the Road Name or Number!! But read the WHOLE sign! As you get close - ALL the signs start with "MARION" followed by the road NUMBER! (Dad wuz thunkin there wuz a Lotta roads named "Marion".)

If you ask someone for directions - be sure to say "RiverBEND" Park - there are several other little parks in the Hancock Parks District with names starting with "River..."

** Pay attention to Routes 23 and 15 -- (if you use the southern approach)!! It "looks" like the same road (actually a highway) with both numbers - but Not So! You leave Upper Sandusky (route 30) onto Ohio 23 and OMG! 23 just morphs into Ohio 15 as you get closer to the Findlay Reservoir.

On most Highway Maps, the Findlay Reservoir appears as a rather large, square shaped Lake - south-east of the City of Findlay. Good Landmark! The Dog Park is within a quarter mile of the north-east corner of that Reservoir!

07-25-2003, 03:35 PM
Well, Mapquest tells me it's would take me a little over 3 hours to get there. I don't know how well Buddy would be in the car that long!! (Our drives have never been over 45 mins.) But we shall see!!!

I would LOVE to take them there, that park is HUGE!! I just know they would love it!!

Andie ~

Missouri is a BIG state!
WHERE are you starting out from (TOWN Name = ??)

As for going thru INDY -
You might spend a lot of time trying to Bypass Indy...
Grit you teeth and take a deep breath! :p

Or look at a MapQuest of just Indianapolis;
then Zoom out and Plot you Own Trail around it.

MapQuest *may* give you an "Option" of excluding Indy from your route. I never tried that.

Tell us What Town you're Starting from;
and I'll see what we can figure out.

LOL a big state full of little towns.

It's Matthews MO where we are from now.



Might just let Dustin drive the Indy part. I freaked out going a mile into Memphis TN last summer! I grew up driving on gravel roads don't be throwin me into these big cities. :p

Sorrie bout dat!
We all got purdy distracted by dat "other matter" :mad:
an plum furgot we'z playin "Tripple A" on this thread.

Hey Andie ~

MapQuest says it's just about the same in Time and Mileage if you go through INDY or take another route that runs you through Kentucky and then Cincinnati. :eek:

Given the two choices - the more northern route thru Indy is probably the better choice. Cincinnati is a larger city - so the Interstate passing either thru or around Cinci will have you in congested, city traffic for a longer time going thru Cinci. The city traffic period to pass thru Indy should be less.

Matthews, MO to Findlay, Ohio, via Indy - is about
9 Hours of driving...
Covering 550 miles.

Best pack a lite lunch! :p

Let us know if you need more ideas.

;)

----------------------------------

HEY ~ Tubby & Peanutz ~

Are your Mom & Dad plannin on moturin ober inna Rollin Howze??

We'll hafta figger out a new way fur you to get off the Innerstate - don't think the Boyz will have dat Bridge rebuilt affore Labor Day! :rolleyes:

Cinder & Smoke, here's a lil tip for you, so you won't starve on the truck going home. ;) Not that I think there's any risk of that! Make to sure to grab some cookies pretty early on while dad is all confused and busy, and go hide then in the glove box - it's up front I guess. You should be able to reach that. :D

Have fun all! :D

Food~ I don't think I will bring Cheetos again:p Even though they are good. I will bring some treats for the Doggies and I'll make some (non doggie)Dog Chow, It's Chex covered in peanut butter,chocolate, and sprinkled with powdered sugar. Trust me it's great and I'm an Ok cook (I want to become a Home ec. Teacher when I grow up so I've had some experience) I don't think I'll bring any pop this time. But if you like the idea of the "Not for Doggies Dog Chow" I can bring that:)

I was THINKING of bringing MooShoo with me for the day. He's very laid back and mello and does well on a harness. He doesn't mind dogs at all and I though it would be nice if everyone could meet him.

I would also bring a BIG carrier to put him in should he get tired or restless.

We had a kitten (Sammi) at the last meeting and he did very well (they had him on the grass in rabbit caging with his food and litterbox in it.)

What do you guys think???? :D :D :D

08-06-2003, 04:22 PM
Sure, Moo - Cum'on ober!

Bye-da-bye - How fast kan you *RUN*?

:eek: Dad's :mad: !

"Dad" here...
Although they both *live* with a KAT - Cinder & Smokey Have Been Known to give a kat or two a bit of a *run for it's money* when one ventures too close to the Shop.

That said - both should be fine with a Visinting Kat - once introductions are made and Butts Are Swatted if either one gets a bit too excited.

But we can't speak for ALL the Pet Talk Pups, nor any of the "Locals".

Moo might get a lil more attention than he'd *like*; but he should be safe enough in Mom's arms.

Only other worry might be the elements - too warm/cold or sunny... but then he should be OK under the Pavilion cover if the weather gets too extreme.

As for Sammy's visit - he seemed to be OK with everything Outside the Bark Park Yard...
But I don't *think* he ever ventured INside.

Summary - if the weather won't bother him -
bring ole Moo Kat along!

:D

Phred,

Did you guys know that there's no need to go through
downtown Indianapolis when coming west to east through
Indiana ? We have a I465 loop around the city. It connects
all Interstate routes through Indiana & bypasses the city proper.

Well, I'll have to give it some more thought. I wouldn't bring him into the dog area as it IS their territory. I also don't know much about the other dogs. I would definitely keep him in the pavillion with me and would have a large carrier where he could retreat, should he become restless or tired.

Hmmmmmmm...anybody else care to comment???

We were out at the Dog Park last night, and so I must say...bring bug spray!!! The mosquitoes are awful!!! It shouldn't be too bad, if the sun stays out, but if it is cloudy, watch out!!!


The parks department is inprocess of adding water, inside the gates!!! The whole has been dug for a few weeks, but nothing more has been done. Maybe by Labor Day weekend we'll have water?

anna_66
08-10-2003, 09:34 PM
If the mosquitos are anything like they are here, we'll need lots of bug spray:eek:

Now, when you say they are adding water, do you mean like a pool or something for the dogs? If so that would be awesome!

shais_mom

I think they are putting in access to a hydrant inside the park so we don't have to walk all the way to the bathroom.

similar to the heavy duty one next to the

As for anyone else stayin in a Rent-a-Bed...
Don't *think* anyone else is doin a sleep-over.

There are several motels on I-75 near Findlay - check on the Web for FINDLAY, Ohio.
And you might consider driving part way home Sunday evening;
then stay at a different motel on the way whenever you get tired. You'll be driving on main east/west routes - so there will be LOTS of motels available.

Yes, we are coming. We will bring brats again (no, not kids....bratwurst lol). We are bringing DeeDee and Shawna this time. Just please everyone who is coming, don't approach DeeDee until she gets used to you, she is a fear biter, but she is getting better and we would like to test her. We are also bringing our friends Tammy and Andy and their 2 dogs (one is still officially a Cobb Care foster) Zeus (GSD pup) and Ruthie (hound from CC). They are going to bring something, but don't know what yet.

He's been to the White Coat and is on medication; which seems to be working. Johanna reported that the Binx was tearing up the house this morning - running around and *bouncing* off the furniture.
"Light Activity"?? Binx must not have been lissnin when the Vet said that!

Leslie said a long time ago she was bringing Grahan & Kersey to the next Bark Park Meeting - but she hasn't confirmed that on this thread.

Interstate 75 DETOURS ~
Exit #157 / Ohio Route 12 EXIT is CLOSED
for Southbound I-75 Traffic!!

This will effect Karen & Paul, MoosMom, all the Michigan Gang ~
Anyone who uses I-75 Southbound to Findlay!

1) Exit I-75 at Exit # 161 / "Highway 99"

2) Turn Left heading EAST onto Highway 99

3) Cross over (straight thru) North Main Street
4) Cross over set of Railroad Tracks
5) Highway 99 bends right - follow it
6) then Highway 99 turns off sharply to the Left - DON'T turn with 99...

7) Continue STRAIGHT onto "Highway 212"
8) Follow 212 (Cross Highway 18; pass Bright Road)

9) 212 changes from 4-lane to 2-lane...

10) Follow 212 to STOP sign at Highway 236
11) TURN RIGHT onto Highway 236 (you're going south, now)

12) STAY ON 236 going south...

You'll pass through 2 stop lights, 1 at Sate Route 12 and 1 at US Route 224. At the 224 intersection there will be a Walmart on your right (just a point of reference).

Continue south on 236 until you come to a STOP sign.
At this point 236 T's into the side of State Route 568.

13) Turn LEFT onto OH-568 follow OH-568 to the east...
.. you're in the "country" now :)..
.. go about 1.5 miles and *Watch* for two
.."Hancock Parks/RiverBend Park" signs on the right

14) Turn RIGHT onto MARION TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY 241.

15) cross a "rickity old bridge" to the Stop sign.

16) Turn LEFT onto TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY 208.

17) Enter the RiverBend Park...
... Drive past a Ranger Station on your left
... The road turns 90 degrees right

18) Slow Down - turn Right into the Bark Park & "The Lodge" parking lot,
... just after that bend in the road.

"Our" Pavilion #7 is the First One on the right inside the parking lot.

SPECIAL NOTE:
There is some "confusion" on "terms" used by MapQuest :eek:...
They confuse "County Road and County Highway"
with TOWNSHIP Road and Highway"... :rolleyes: !
It doesn't matter!! :D
The Important thing is The NUMBER (99, 212, 236, etc)
NONE of the NUMBERS are used twice (Thanks, God!!)

When you look at MapQuest - "County" and "Township" road numbers BOTH appear in lil Square Boxes...
No matter what *I* called it - if the Number on the sign matches with the turn directions above - You're on the right road!
"ONLY in Ohio!" :rolleyes:

ANYONE...
Who wants a turn-by-turn MapQuest routing from their home ~
PM "Cinder & Smoke" with your request.
We'll need a "Starting Location" (Town Name, Zip Code, and the cross streets of a major intersection near your home).
Best way to deliver it is to your E-Mail (NOT a PM).

2) Turn RIGHT heading EAST onto Findlay on Ohio 12
3) Turn RIGHT (south) at the Traffic Light at "Main St"
.. note: Route 12 goes left (north) here - don't follow it
.. route sign will probably say "OH 37 South"
.. don't fuss - just Turn Right on Main St!

4) South on Main St for two blocks - BE IN the LEFT Lane!

5) TURN LEFT onto OHIO 568 EAST

6) STAY ON 568 going East

Phred, I check every time I am on. It's just that I don't need to know how to get there. The only think I have to remember to route Amy away from all the horses. :rolleyes:

But you sure do a good job on getting every one there! Thanks for your continual updated information. By the way, it is suppose to be sunny on Sunday but only a high of about 75 which sounds pretty good to me. But don't forget the bug spray everyone. The mosquitoes and sweat bees are quite bad in the shade and when the sun is hiding!!! The stuff with a higher percentage of Deet works the best. At least 7% if you prefer not to go home with all kinds of little welts.

Can you use the 5,000 BTU for the shelter?? Let me know so I know whether to lug it down the stairs and put it in my trunk.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday. I may be a little late as that is my day at the shelter but I usually go in at 8 an am out by 11, depending on how many babies are in there.

Donna,

Your offer of the AC is too kind, however, there is no shelter anymore. We are regrouping and trying for a new building. We are looking for funding and cash donations at this time for a building fund. It's truly enough just to see my friends again. Thanks again!

Phred,

You are the greatest!! Do we need to bring hamburger too?? Let me know so we can make up some patties.

Hello All!

I live in Ohio also and am thinking of going to Findlay to join everyone. I am relatively new to pet talk, so I'm not sure what this is all about. What do I need to do and what do I need to bring? It sounds like a fun day and something for us to do with our new pup, Katie. I'll have to look up how far away Findlay is though. Katie does well in the car but we have never taken long rides with her so I'm not for surre how she would do. Well, make sure you fill me in with all the details. Thanks!

Have a great evening....Robin

Cincy'sMom
08-29-2003, 05:00 PM
Hi Robin!

You are welcome to join us on Sunday! Basically, we just all get together at the dog park and have fun...not much needed to do. Everyone usually brings something to share (can be anything from a bag of chips to T-bone steaks if you want!)

Where in Ohio are you at? ( If you'd rather not post it here, PM me) One way or another, we can get you directions from where you are!


Hope we'll see you Sunday!!

Staci, I won't forget the potato salad. Got the fixings for it today!!! Will probably bring some brownies too for the true chocholics!!:)
and the plates, napkins, paper towels, and doggies and doggy treats and......

mugsy
08-29-2003, 07:48 PM
I think Tammy and Andy are bringing a veggie tray, but, I'm not totally sure. It seems like we always have plenty-o desserts but not much of the salady stuff. How's that for a suggestion Jo?

Hope you will be able to make it Robin. We love new people and poochies.

If I can manage to remember, we'll get some wet wipes or something like Purell to clean up.

Hi Again!

I live in Chillicothe. Would love to have some directions to the park. I figure its about a 3 hour drive. We are thinking about coming. It would be my husband, me and our 5 month old akita, Katie. I would love to meet everyone, especially all the fur faces!!

Thanks everyone....Robin

Oh yes, please come!!! I'd love to see Katie and so would MooShoo. I hope you don't mind non-fur kids. Moo is my cat/dog. He's actually a Sphynx who acts like a Chihuahua.

I'm also bringing a new friend...his name his Carl the Cone. I rescued hom tonight from a street corner. He'll be staying with me for a while.

THE MORE CHOCOLATE, THE MERIER!!!!! :D :D :D

BTW, will someone PLEASE remind me to give some money to whoever's permit we're using for the park? Last time I left without chipping in. I had a sick bunny with me so I had my mind on other things.

Robin ~
You need "The Southern Route; via Columbus", which hasn't been posted yet. :rolleyes:
Here ya Go! >>>

1: Start out going East on US-50/ W MAIN ST/
.. OH-104 toward OH-772/ S PAINT ST. 0.44 miles

2: Turn LEFT onto N BRIDGE ST/ US-23 BL N/
.. OH-159 N. Continue to follow N BRIDGE ST/ OH-159 N. 3.86 miles

3: Merge onto US-23 NORTH via the ramp- on the left. 34.20 miles

4: Merge onto I-270 WEST toward I-71 / COLUMBUS. 2.51 miles

5: Merge onto I-71 N via exit number 55 toward COLUMBUS. 4.41 miles

BEWARE the 55 mph zones!! Smokey da Bear :eek: is *watching*!

9: Stay straight to go onto OH-15 West.
.. THIS is where US- 23 just "morphs" into Ohio- 15 West
.. don't do anything except keep driving straight
.. (and don't "follow" US-23!! It doesn't vanish -
.. 23 turns off to the north by itself.)

** NOTE what your odometer mileage is here as 23 turns into Ohio 15 !

Go about 7.5 to 8 miles on Ohio 15; then
.. SLOW Down as much as you can without getting trampled...

10: *watch* for a line of Pine Trees paralleling the highway on your right

.. *watch* for an advance sign for TOWNSHIP Road # 190
... the turn (a Right) is hard to spot at 65 mph...
... and it's NOT a high speed turn, either!!

Turn RIGHT onto TOWNSHIP ROAD 190. (a lil dinky 2 laner)

11: Go straight North on Twp 190 - go about 2 miles on 190
.. pass Twp 173
.. pass Twp 174 (on the right, only)
.. pass Twp 202 (a cross road)

.. to the STOP Sign at Township 205

12: Turn LEFT onto Twp 205; and go about 1 mile...

13: Turn RIGHT (north) onto TOWNSHIP 244 - go about 1 mile to
.. the STOP Sign at the Tee intersection with Township 207

14: Turn LEFT (west) onto TOWNSHIP 207...

.. you'll cross a lil Rickity Bridge;
.. and you're *looking* at the Findlay Reservoir! (The BIG Dirt Pile!)
.. turn RIGHT (cuz you have to to follow the road!)
.. then drive North beside the Reservoir for about 1/2 mile.

15: Twp 207 turns off to the left to follow across the north end of the Reservoir.

YOU drive STRAIGHT (now on TWP 208) and Enter the RiverBend Park

16: SLOW Down when you see "the Lodge" on the left...
.. pass "the Lodge" Building and turn LEFT into the Parking Lot.

"Our" Pavilion # 7 is the first one on the right
after you enter the parking lot.
------------------------------------------------
Total Estimated Time: 3 hours, 11 minutes

Brad said he probably won't be able to make it this time (health reasons) but that he misses Pet Talk and will be back soon. I hope he comes anyway - I'd so like to meet Callihan! And Mitchel and Brad and everyone! But Callihan, as the very first ever Pet of the Day, would be neat to meet!

Our camera is packed and buried in the storage unit for Cobb Care and we can't find it! Tammy didn't realize that the camera was ours and when she packed up the office, she packed the camera and I didn't think to ask her about it until it was too late. Mike and I were over there at 11:30 last night trying to find it, but, to no avail. I guess we will just have to depend on everyone else's pictures again. :(

See you all soon!!

Well, Smokey & I are still here in Indy. We didn't make it.:(

I seriously overslept this morning (by 2 hours). It started raining
last night and hasn't let up yet. It's a cold steady rain, that has
lightened up for maybe 20-30 minutes, only to start again in
earnest. Smokey hates rain & had to be strongly encouraged to
go out & stay out to do his business this morning.I ended up
getting my umbrella & going out with him.He set a new record for
a potty, 45 secs flat.:rolleyes: My two outside cats, Momma &
Baby would not come into the garage last night, so after Smokey
did his business and I fed the indoor kitties & Smokey, I went back outside to call them again. Momma & Baby showed up quick
and were very glad to come in out of the cold rain.Phred provided
excellent directions to the Bark Park & I'm sure I'd be able to find
it easily. Next time, I hope. I'm so sorry things didn't work out
better this time. Hope everyone has a good & safe trip to and
from the park. I'm really bummed.:( Just wait, next Tuesday
when I have to go back to work, it'll be bright & sunny.

Bring your brother Brandee. It's my birthday too. That's why I requested it. Staci's is the next day. Jo is pretty cool isn't she? Sorry you were forced to spend the day with a *gasp* 8th grade teacher! ;)

What a great day it was. We already dropped off the film and will be ready in about an hour with a CD so we should have pictures yet tonight. I can't wait to see everyone's pictures...especially the pictures of Carl the Cone!

Oh btw....everyone take note.... Mike wants a Yorkie! Yeah right...he who says that Jessie is the smallest dog he would ever own. I guess Ringo changed his mind.

A Yorkie would fit on the fuel tank and he could ride around with it !!! (but also, YES it would fit in his pocket!!!)

Harley with a Yorkie on it ............ better buy a really MEAN looking collar!!!!! :D

Hi All

Just wanted to say we had a great time! Loved meeting all the people and the dogs and Mooshoo too! What a great group. :) Katie was exhausted and climbed down on the floor of the truck and slept all the way home. I'm pretty sure she had a great time too...lol...she is fast asleep right now also. I'm with Mike..I wanna a Yorkie also! See what you started Ringo. :p BTW...I would have liked to have snuck Shawna home with me also. Such a sweetie and so gentle! I absolutely loved them all. It was such a treat to sit and just watch them play and I was amazed at how they all got along. What a fantastic day!!

:) Robin :)

P.S. Yummy....I just took a bite of one of Phred's cookies ( I snuck a few home with me). Phred not only gives out good directions, he makes awesome cookies also! Yum! Yum! Yum!

mugsy
08-31-2003, 08:19 PM

You would have had a fight on your hands for Shawna!! lol You and Mike also share a love for Phred's cookies. We, also, took a few home. Shawna helped herself to a few too on the way home! :D

08-31-2003, 09:14 PM
Well we are home now, and I'll start uploading the pictures...

Christy (Dakota'sMommy) is on the phone now, saying where's all the pictures?!?!

Ringo will give anyone who meets him the Yorkie bug! What a little cutie!!! I think everyone should have a big black dog...and a little pocket pooch :)


Shawna was a sweetheart and so was DeeDee. And Billy too...but he wasn't quite as social with the humans. And Katie was great for a first exposure to an Akita...what a cutie...okay I'll sum it up...all the dogs are wonderful :D

08-31-2003, 09:21 PM
What another GREAT time! I really enjoyed riding up with Baylee, we talked and talked, and the time just flew. Too bad she can't drive yet! (on the roads that is). I am trying to upload images to Imagestation right now, but, too slow...and I am too tired. Binx hasn't moved a muscle, other than to devour 4 cups of food. He already misses his new friend, Ruthie.

Phred just called...he, Karen, Paul, Amy and Ralph (maybe more) didn't leave til 830pm! OMG!! Party animals!!!!!

More, tomorrow...

There really was NO serious rain all day :)! Little mist during the final chat and pack up session; but all in all the Weather was GREAT!

Started raining Klawz & Pawz about the time we hit the main highway; and light to heavy rain almost the entire trip home :mad:.

Looks like almost everyone has checked in now - glad everyone made it home safely. Only one more carfull to worry about - Karen & Paul! Here's wishing them a SAFE trip back east tomorrow!!

I asked the Chief Dawggie Korrespondant if he'd like to file his report tonight... answer:

"Are you NUTZ, Dad!? We'z TIURD!!
Less jest go home - I'll file it tumorrow!"

Cinder & Smoke are *crashed* under the puter... I don't think I'll get much help unloading the car! :p

Fantastic Day, Folks!!
Thanks to All who came; and We Missed Ya to those who couldn't make it!

Since the Chief Pilot is also a bit *bushed*, I think we'll head for the Ranch...

Yap Laterz...

/s/ the *Tiurd* but Happie Phred, Cinder & Smokey :D

Well I didn't get to report in last night, so I'm doing it on this yucky rainy morning.
We had a wonderful time yesterday, & I wish we could have stayed a little longer, but with mom's arm still not up to par I thought it better to go home early.
Here are some of my favorites:

Great pictures everyone!!!! I have a few to add but with the slowness of my internet it probably will be later today before I do anything.

Delidog, I have a bone to pick with you -
Spot and Reilly are Precious Spotties!!!!!! And exactly what is wrong with my PRECIOUS Spotty, Snoopy??????:eek:

And I guess as one of the older members of Pet Talk (in age not in time with Pet Talk) I would like to say a thank you to puppygrrl4eva7, Bailey, for joining us this time even though she knew none of the other youngsters, like KayAnn or Amy (WolfQ) would be there. There has been a lot of unhappiness about some of the younger people who have been a part of Pet Talk and abused the connection. But we should also be grateful to the younger ones like Bailey who have joined us (and KayAnn and Wolf Q) and I am sure many others I am not mentioning who
show us that maturity has nothing to do with age and loving, caring, respecting animals is what Pet Talk is all about.

I can NOT believe how good DeeDee was. She has never been this good with people before. I know she was skiddish, but, she was amazing considering what she was even just 6 months ago.

09-01-2003, 12:56 PM
Dazzi, my mom's golden mix is the one in the pen. My mom doesn't usually get to go to the park becusae she "polices" the place and picks on some of the other dogs. She had been really good ou there lately, so mom thought she'd try her. After a little scrap with Graham and then Huney, she spent the ret ofthe day in the pen or on a leash.

Poor baby, I am sorry she had to have a whole day time out.

She sure is a beautiful dog. Maybe next time she will be better.

What a blast it was yesterday!!!! MooShoo loved meeting everyone, including the dogs. Carl was THE best greeter and was very polite. People who were at the park who weren't part of the PT reunion kept staring at this well dressed cone and were probably thinking we were a bunch of loonies.

It was such a pleasure to finally meet Mr. & Mrs. Mayor after all this time. Everyone was wonderful and I can't tell you how much the whole day meant to me (and Moo, of course).

Carl the Cone was happy as a clam to be the honorable PT Greeter. He refused to take off his tux because he said it made him feel important.

Thanks everyone for such a wonderful time!!!

We have brain farts VERY often. Especially when it comes to names and numbers. I'm always calling my cats by the wrong names. Please, PLEAAASSSEEE forgive me??????

Glad you two got home safe and sound. I'm sure with a little more "bribing" Miss Hoppy will forgive (although maybe not forget)

I was so great finally meeting you and Paul. No wonder you guys have such a great following.

This was the best weekend I've had in a long time!

I didn't get many pictures but here are a few of what I did get.

First off, I arrived first - what was up with that? Phred usually gets there before me. But as 4 Dog Mother (me) arrived with 4 of her 5 dogs, she realized that there were already 4 dogs in the park - 4 greyhounds. Here are pictures of them:
Fred:http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid77/p1090a7c540345925603001f3a9e51b98/fb3490fb.jpg

http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid77/p40222ddc448de75523c7e180fd014952/fb34910f.jpg
They left as more Pet Talkers arrived. Here are a few of our group:

Then as more people arrived, Dazzi, self-acclaimed "boss" of the park began to need closer supervision and I'm afraid my camera got set aside. But what I did get taken are Here (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4289231679)
