YES, Kay...

BUTT - Don't *sweat it... ;)

I've been working with the Hancock Parks Director to devise
a "Visiting Dogs Policy"
that the Parks & Health Departments can agree to;
AND that the Local Taxpayers (who really *own* the Park),
will feel is fair to all.

What is Absolutely POSITIVE is that *ALL* "Visiting Dogs"
will be *Required* to bring WITH them and possibly Turn In ~

1) COPY of a Vet's Receipt showing that Annual Vaccinations were
. . given within the Last Year;

2) COPY of a Rabies Shot Vaccination showing that the shot
. . is CURRENT (within 1 or 3 years - depending on the vaccine used)

3) Dog should WEAR its City/County/State LICENSE,
. . as well as its Rabies Tag.

WE will get the "policy" worked out with Parks...
"Guest Permits" are being considered.

We'll keep you posted -
but you "Out of Towners" can start rounding up
Items #1, #2 and #3 above.

Bottom Line - Don't *Sweat It*!!
We'll get the FurKids IN!! ;) :D

Thanks for the info Phred! :)

I'll have to get copies at the store.
They wear their tags 24/7 so that's no problem.

Katie and I will be there on the 18th. Can't wait! Not for sure what I'm going to bring. I'll be sure to bring something though :p

Since Katie and I will probably be coming to a few of the get togethers, how do we go about registering for the dog park? I'd like to get that taken care of.

Robin :)

I believe you can print of an application online. Ithink Phred posted alink once before, but I don't remember which thread...if he doesn't reply soon, you can do a google search for Hancock County Parks and should be able to find it.

Basically, you need to send vet records and $10 to The Hancock County Park Office, 1424 East Main Cross Findlay Oh, 45840.

( Check payable to Hancock County Parks Field of Dreams)

How do we go about registering for the dog park?

Here are *links* to two Hancock Parks District web pages;

The first link has an brief "Tail" about the Dog Park at the
Very BOTTOM of the page >>>

Hancock Parks / Riverbend DOG PARK (http://www.hancockparks.com/whats-new.htm)

And here is the *link* to see and PRINT the
Dog Park Yearly Permit Application >>>

Hancock DOG Park PERMIT Application (note: is an Adobe .pdf file) (http://www.hancockparks.com/dogpark-app.pdf)

NOTE: You Must Have "Adobe Acrobat Reader" installed on
your 'puter to Load & See this .pdf file...
If you don't have Adobe Reader -
I guess PM Me at "Cinder & Smoke" and we'll get you a form.

Note 2: The Application is TWO Pages long -
be SURE to Print Page 1 AND Page 2;
Page 2 is a WAIVER that Must Be Signed & Returned -
and is at the Very BOTTOM of page 2. ;)

What you need to SEND IN with the Application is >>

1) CHECK made out to Hancock Parks Foundation with
Memo to: Dog Park Permit

2) COPY (originals won't be returned) of the Dog's
. . Annual Vaccination Record from the VET...
. . (A Copy of the Office Visit Receipt is fine if the SHOTS
. . are noted & has Vet's Name on it).
. . DATE needs to be within ONE Year of now.

3) COPY of RABIES Vaccination Receipt ...
. . DATE within 1 or 3 years - depending on the vaccine used;
. . Most Rabies Receipts show an EXPIRATION date for the shot -
. . Rabies Vacc must be "current" (not expired).

4) All Dogs must also be "Licensed" by the City, Town, County,
or State where you LIVE. Fido should be *wearing* his/her License.

Send it all to:
Hancock Parks District
Attn: Dog Permit
1424 Eeast Main Cross Street
Findlay, OH 45840

Cost of $10 / year registers 1, 2 or 3 Dogs.
You'll receive a Plastic Laminated "Permit Card" in the Mail -
BRING IT WITH you on visits -
they WILL be Checking Permits this year!!

A note about the "DATES" shown on your Receipts ~
Parks is "happy" if the Dates on the Vet & Rabies Receipts are
"Current" within the LAST 12 Months of when you send them in...
In other words; if Fido had his "Shots" anytime AFTER April 1 of 2003 -
he's Good to Go!

And a 3 year Rabies shot is good if it was given
AFTER April 1, 2001.

** Write DOWN the ZIP Code - they forgot to put it ON the Application! :rolleyes:

And: The Application has LAST year's Dates on it - "2003" -
don't worry - They'll send a 2004 Permit! ;)

ANY Questions??
Post em or PM me. ;)

Mike and I talked about it last night and this morning and we are beginning to question whether or not we will be attending this year. It's turning into a bigger hassle than it's worth. We will probably come to the May meeting, but, are still debating about others.

So, we will make a command decision in plenty of time to let you all know, so if we can't make it, other arrangements can be made for the main course.

I've "erased" what was originally posted here -
it is (or was) "repeated" a few posts later (below)...

A further explanation is offered in an "edited" post where I
answered a question asked by Donna (moosmom).

Sorry about this!

/s/ :o Phred

Mike and I discussed it and have decided that we will not be attending the gatherings this year. For as many times as we visit, it seems ridiculous to pay $55 to register the 11 dogs when some residents of the county only pay $15 a year and they live there. Phred mentioned rotating dogs, but, I'm not sure they would go for that and if we got "caught" doing that we don't want to end up with a fine.

Also, we both are working closely with the LaGrange County Animal Shelter in LaGrange, IN and need the time to devote to building kennels for the dogs so that they have better living conditions until the new shelter is built. We have been actively involved with coordinating transports as well and we are coordinating 2 for that weekend so that 7 dogs can have a chance at life. One of them is running on Sunday the 18th.

So, that's a longwinded way of saying, we won't be there, so the main course needs to be revised.

Sorry, but, we have discussed this many times and weighed the options and decided against it.

Mike and Molly

Hi guys!

Unfortunately I'll be unable to make it as well. Maybe Memorial Weekend. We'll have to wait and see. Have a great time and think about me.

ATTENSHUN Dawggies -
are your Hoomins *ready* for the
Findlay Bark Park Gathurin on the 18th of April??

PLEASE READ and UNDERSTAND the Following >>>

Last year the Hancock Park District was VERY Understanding
and Forgiving of our not having Dog Park PERMITS for all of
our dogs when they visited...
Parks basically just "looked the other way" and didn't object to
a "few" dogs "visiting" once or twice.

Although several of us have tried,
and a Very Cooperative Park Director has also tried;
it is very unlikely that any major changes in the established
Park Rules will be adopted this summer.
The Dog Park Rules are formulated after Public Hearings -
and rule changes will be a Long & Tedious procedure.

What this means is that EVERY DOG that enters the
Bark Park Enclosure MUST Be REGISTERED in advance.

HOW to REGISTER was covered in detail a few posts ago -
PLEASE!!
Take the Time, Spend the $10, and REGISTER NOW!!

And Please Understand -
it's not that the Park District doesn't want us
to come into their Park - they think it's GREAT :) that so many
folks travel to Findlay to enjoy the Dog Park!!

I'd also like to point out that we "out-of-towners" get off pretty "cheap"!
EVERY Homeowner (and probably Business Owners) HAVE to
PAY a Hancock County Park TAX every year!
It costs a Homeowner anywhere form $15 to $100 per year to support
and pay for the operation of the Park District!
And they PAY that Tax whether or not they step foot in a Park!

**EDIT** to ADD >>
I wasn't very clear with that...
The TAX every Hancock County Resident pays yearly
does NOT include "Dog Park Privelages"!
The TAX is based on a home's "market value" -
a $ 50,000 home pays ~ $15 Park TAX,
a $100,000 home pays ~ $25 Park TAX,
a $150,000 home pays ~ $38 Park TAX;

AND they ALSO PAY an ADDITIONAL $10 to use the Dog Park!

So our having to pay only $10 to use the Dog Park isn't such a bad deal!

We all hope that this doesn't discourage anyone from attending
the Pet Talk Gatherins at Findlay!
The 2-Leggers AND the 4-Leggers ALL have a GREAT TIME!!
Don't miss out!

And if you're going to Bring a Friend WITH Dogs -
form up a "Family Group" and Register up to 3 or 4 dogs on one permit -
just don't "tell" anyone!

Any Questions or Concerns?
Post em or PM to "Cinder & Smoke" ...

There *IS* Time to Register - if you send it in NOW!
As long as the Park Office gets your $10 and the Application WITH
the Dog(s) Vet Records ON or before April 16 (a week from now) -
there won't be any problems.

Cinder & Smokey want to see you ALL in a week!! :D

/s/ Phred

And a lil PS:
I've had a PM asking if "NO Dog" Visitors
(HOOMINs - who don't bring a K-9 Companion along with them)
need to be "Registered"?

The Answer is NO - Humans withOUT a Dog -
do NOT need to "Register" to attend the Gatherin!

And if you're gonna Bring da KAT (or a Cone :D ) -
THEY get in for "free" too!
It's ONLY the K-9 / Dawggies that need to have a Permit!

Hmmmm... wonder if GOATS are allowed in...?? :p

So sorry to hear you won't be coming Molly, Mike and Donna:( We'll really miss you all.

Since Mike and Molly won't be bringing their famous brats (darn!) I'll bring some hotdogs and buns unless anyone has any other suggestions. Just let me know!

I'm looking forward to next Sunday!!!

Cincy'sMom
04-08-2004, 06:06 PM
I'm sorry to hear you won't be coming Mike andMolly, but certainly understand the commitment to the shelter. Those dogs sure need you!! If your schedule fress up later inthe year and you want to come, I think you could get all the dogs registered for $40 (4 on each of 2 passes, $15 each, the remaining 3 on one for $10), and could actually bring 8 at a time...4 for each of you. That is the way I understand the rules anyway.

My mom had to get a second pass this year since she has 5 dogs, so it cost her $20. And she can only take all 5 if my dad is in town :(

We'll miss you too, Donna! Hope you can make it mater this year!

Anna, I'll bring some hot sausages to add to the hot dogs. And I'll still bring a cake.

Cinder & Smoke
04-08-2004, 08:11 PM
I would like to know why you feel it necesary
to post the same post twice???


*EDITED* Friday Morning 4/08/04 @ 11:45 AM

:eek: + :o
"Dad" did a *DUMB* stunt... :p

I did a little research,
and found a "Feature" in the PT "Edit Options" that allows you
to select 5, 10, 20, 30, or 40 POSTS to display on a page...

I've always had 20 Posts / page as my display format ...
so what I said just below here made some "sense" to me...

BUT - if you have selected 30 or 40 Posts / page -
my "repeating" what I originally had posted above
(just "erased" by me) -
looked to many to be a rude and totally unnecessary "harping"
of the subject!

OOPS!! :o

Donna was quite right - I DIDN'T need to "repeat" myself!

Ya learn sumpin Every Day!
Sorry bout that!!

*end* *edit* by Phred
--------------------------


Answer:

I watch the "Views" counter on the Index pages;
and there weren't many "Views" of the post before it went
one page back from the current page.
And from past experience, some folks don't always read the
"older" pages on a thread.

I also sent a "reminder PM" to the Dog Owners who expressed an interest
in attending the Findlay Gatherings.
I truly Hope that no one takes offense to that PM "reminder" -
but I also don't want anyone that plans to attend on April 18 to
not know that the pre-registration (of Dogs) is now a requirement.

I'm Very Sorry if I've seemed to "badger" anyone -
NOT my intent!
Just want to make sure everyone knows the "current scoop"!

PS:
If anyone needs Travel Routings or Directions to Findlay -
post here or PM me at "Cinder & Smoke".

I think you should be fine Robin. They just need to have your paper work on file before you you come, and there is no way it should take more then 5 days to get across the state. You may even have your pass back before the weekend, but if not, don't worry.

If you are unsure, you could call or email the park office Friday to be sure it has arrived, but I wouldn't even worry about that.

I'm sorry that Donna, Molly and Mike won't be there. We will miss you guys. I hope you will try to make it to one later on.

I can't wait to see all the people and their furbabies! Just have to make it through the week.

*edit* Just got off the phone with Leslie. She can't make the Findlay trip because she's picking up her husband from the airport on Sunday. He's flying back in from Germany!

She says hello and has marked her calendar for the other dog park get togethers. :)

Now... I'm off to bug Donna. :)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I will Amy. :)

Here's the weather forcast for Sunday from the National Weather Service:

Sunday. Mostly sunny in the morning. Then becoming partly cloudy. Breezy with highs in the mid 70s. South winds 10 to 15 mph in the morning. Becoming southwest 15 to 25 mph in the afternoon.

:eek:

We best get rocks to keep our food plates from blowing away. :D

I'm sorry to hear that Leslie won't be able to make it this time, but I guess picking her husband up after being in Germany is more important:D

I'm so glad to hear it's going to be warm and not rain, so I guess I can deal with the wind!

Sorry all - but I'm afraid Leo and I are not going to be able to make it after all. I will not be returning from San Diego until Sunday - my trip was extended a couple of days. :(

I am going to try to make the Memorial Day trip though if at all possible, and hopefully there will be another later in the summer.

Leo and I are really bummed out, but I received my Dog Park card, so I have to make it at some point this summer. :)

Well, it looks like I am the first one home and to post. Can't imagine why. A good time was had by all. A very warm and windy day - several us are now several shades redder than we were when we got there. Fine day to forget teh sunscreen! 87 degrees here today.

As usual Phred was the first to arrive. My three boys and I were a close second. Followed by Staci, Anna, Amy, Kimmy, Andy, his friend and Robin and her friend. I don't think I forgot anyone.

The food was great, the friendship better and the dogs had a great time running, chasing, eating treats, being petted and loved! Another gathering , another success.

Here is a picture of Phred and Staci sitting on the new bench

I have been thinking about the gathering all day today, wishing I could be there. Since I couldn't, I decided to drive up and check out the dogpark at Satellite Beach. I found it. It looks okay but it is no Findlay dog park. It is only 12 miles from my apartment down here. I also found a petition online requesting more dogparks be built in Brevard County. Got to add my name to that list. Keep those pictures coming. It will have to hold me over until the end of May when I'll be home in Ohio for the next gathering.

Needless to say we had an awesome time once again (well...except for the getting burnt part:rolleyes: )!

I think all of the dogs really missed each other and missed all of the humans too. They all wanted plenty of lovin', pets and belly rubs! I felt like I was in heaven:D

Besides all of the doggie fun, we humans had a great time talking and eating. We really missed those of you who weren't able to make it. I hope you'll all be able to come to the next one in May!

Well, enough talk...on with the pictures!


Here's (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4287119189) the album link and below are a few of my favorites!

Yes, I am home. Sorry it took me so long to post, but things have been a bit overwhelming since I got home.

I had a great time today at the dog park, despite the fact that Katie was a bad girl today. I hope that this is not a sign of things to come and it was just a bad day for her. Anyways....I loved seeing everyone and all the furkids. Everybody looked fantastic and I love being around all the doggies. What a special treat that is! You just can't beat it.

Ok....the reason I am late getting on here and don't have my pics to show yet is because when I got home their was the cutest little puppy in my living room. My son was the only one home and I kept asking him who the puppy belong too and he would just smile and say it was ours. I just couldn't grasp that idea and still kept asking him who it belonged to. I thought that it might have been one of his friends. He kept trying to explain to me that it was actually mine and that Alden had got it to suprise me for my birthday this month. Surprise does not even begin to describe how I feel. I just can't believe this :eek: I am at a loss for words and can't even think of a name for her! She is sooooo adorable. Katie want to sniff and lick on her but the puppy just whines and growls at her. That part is going to take some time. Brandon says they got her from a farm and she was an outside dog along with her mother and they were filthy! He said you wouldn't believe the tub after Alden gave her a bath. Ok, enough chatting. Here is our latest addition! Oh...Anna and Amy and all you other husky moms. I'm going to need lots of advise on this one ;)

I can tell that Brandon is already very attached to her. Puppy and he are sound asleep in his room. I have to work all day tomorrow and it is going to kill me! I have to get to bed now so I will post all my findlay pics tomorrow if I get to them Everyone's pics were great! Gosh, I just love all those dogs!

OH, Amy! I hope she turns out as beautiful as Nebo! I never saw this coming. Alden says he has done some research, but I don't know a thing about them except I think they are beautiful. I am going to have to do lots of researching. Any advice from you will be much appreciated!!!!!

Wow, still just can't believe this!

Very real, Kay! I keep pinching myself and she is still here. Yes, I think Katie is very overwhelmed, Staci. She had a big day and is sound asleep right now. So is the puppy. I just wish I didn't have to work tommorrow so I could work with them both on getting to know each other. The puppy is a bit frightened. I think she only know the outside and her mommy and that has all changed very quickly, plus Alden had to give her a bath when he got home with her and he said that freaked her out a bit too. I need help with names!!! Nothing is coming to me. I just feel shocked right now! We were always talking about getting another one but said we would wait another year or two. Then he surprised me with this for my bday. That man always figures out some way to throw me for a loop. Gotta love him!!!!

O my goodness! What a surprise! I would fall over dead if Carl ever surprised me with a pup! (course how would he have a chance when I keep finding them and "encouraging" him to let me bring them home. (Honey, there is a broken coated Jack Russell at the Lucas County Humane Shelter, if you would like to surprise me. I am sure Amy would be happy to go pick her up for me.)

The pup is BEATUTIFUL! I have always thought I would like to have a husky. But then again I think they might be a little too much for me to handle. But you have done a great job with Katie so I doubt you will have any trouble.

I come on here to check out all the new pictures from the park and find out there's a new addition to PT!! OMG was the first thing out of my mouth when I heard that you/Alden had gotten a husky pup:) I'm just overjoyed (and a little jealous;)) for you! Now little Katie will have a playmate all the time! How old is she? There must be another thread so I'm off to check it out!!


Great pictures Amy and Staci!

You all with your dogs! I am so jealous! I am mostly on the cat end of things (but not completely) and wish I had a dog I could bring to the park.... You guys are very lucky!
Anyway, Question: of all the pups and dogs that were adopted out from the Chicago catastophe, do any of you know how they are doing and are they keeping anyone updated on their well-being?
And what happened to the remaining dogs after the law said "no more adoptions to non-licsensed shelters" (If I remember correctly- it had to to do with silly stuff). I know this is not the right thread to bring this up on but since there is no thread here about this story anymore, figured someone would know (Mugsy?)
In the meantime, I will look at your photos of good fun!

Cinder and Smoke,

I believe you're right. The colors look so much brighter &
the pictures clearer on IS.

I didn't notice in the other pics, but Cinder & Smokey were on
their 'dual lines' in some of the shots. :D

Thanks everyone for all the wonderful pictures. I hope to join
you all at the May PT Meet. :D :D

Hi Everyone!

I love all the pics! I will try to get mine posted over the weekend. Like Phred said I have been very *bizzie*.

I had a really great time Sunday and loved seeing you all and all of your furkids. They are all beautiful! Its like being in doggie heaven. I love it! The food was great too. Gosh, I really did stuff myself and then I took home lots of cookies, cake and brownies and stuffed myself later on that evening...lol. I really loved Diana's potato salad. Yummy! I usually only like my mom's so that is a huge compliment Diana! I also want to get your carrot cake recipe, Anna and Staci, I want your taco dip recipe. PM them to me if you can ladies. YUM YUM! Next time I'll make sure I get there a little bit earlier so I can have more time to chat and catch up on what eveyone is doing.

I am really hoping that I can make it to the next one this memorial day weekend. sound like I am going to be able to meet even more new people. I love it. I did want to ask everyone if they thought it would be alright to bring Katie. I don't want to cause anyone to worry or offend anyone. I would really like to try one more time. I am hoing she was just have a super bad day. I am going to try and take her to doggie day care again just so I can see how she does there. She did really well the other time I took her. . Oh well, let me know what you think and you can be honest. I won't be offended.

Oh, yeah, I have to mention that I even got to bring some books home that Amy and Staci trade around. That was an extra treat. I will try to remember to bring some of my own to pass around and make sure I bring the ones back that I borrowed.

Great Day and Great Fun.

Hugs to you all....Robin :)

Well, Robin, I think you handled Katie excellantly. I have heard that Akitas are extremely stubborn. But I think Katie is such a sweetie. She got into it with Keegan b/c Keegan was so jealous of any dog that got near her Mommy. It wasn't Katie's fault at all, in her tiff with Keegan. The tiff she had with Kia, like you and Kimmy said Happened so fast I have no clue what happened, I just grabbed Keegan to prevent her from going over there. I think if I remember correctly, someone maybe had treats, and maybe is that how is started? I really don't know. :(
I think that Katie, (at the time of course, she isn't now)Keegan, and Kia all suffer from "single dog syndrome". Katie might be better the next time b/c she shares you now with Tori. On the other hand, she might be more protective over Tori, like Dazzi is over Taggert and Snoopy. I know that Kia and Keegan have gotten into it before if Kia gets near me with Keegan and if Keegan gets near Kimmy with Kia. Honestly, 2 years ago when Amy, Anna and I first met at the dog park, I seriously didn't think I would be able to let Keegan off even inside the fenced area b/c I didn't think she would EVER come back to me. I just didn't think that she and I were as bonded as my RB greyhound, Shaianne.
Little did I know. She never left my side that day! All the other dogs would go off and play with each other, but Keegan preferred the company of the people! If you see any pics of that day, almost all the pics of Anna, Amy and I, Keegan is somewhere near me! It really made me realize that she did love me and we were bonded. I think that was when it truly hit me that she was MY dog and I had a "MY" dog again.
Annnnnnyyyyy way, I digress. I don't think it is fair to you or to Katie to drive all that way and NOT bring her! And I don't want to see you NOT come b/c of that. Remember, I threatened Keegan that I would leave her at home if she didn't stop picking fights!!! :)
Those are my 2 cents! ;)

anna_66
04-23-2004, 08:00 AM
Well of couse I think you should bring Katie! I wouldn't let a couple of tiffs keep you away. Try it again, if it doesn't work then.... I'd hate to see you miss our gatherings!
I can't wait to see your pics! Give those gorgeous girls of yours a big hug from me!
Anna

P.S.
I'll try to pm you that recipe asap:)

Cinder & Smoke
04-23-2004, 11:35 AM
We'd hate to see ANY of the FurPups get :eek: left at home! :(

Some options to consider...

Start a NUNbuddie gets a Free Lunch policy -
No Treat wiffout a "polite" *sit* or *shake* or *beg*...
(Dad gets :mad: when he sees wunna US jest *grabbin* a treet!)
An Ho-BOY - whut we gotta do ta get a treet when we getz back HOME :rolleyes:!
"Werk" fur two minnitz fur a louzee bisquit!
We'd rathur have a "Pay as ya Eat" program!

Should we load up a *Squirt Bottle* with an
"Attitude Adjustment Solution"?
Big Question is What would "work" for ALL the Dogs?
(Hate to use something that would *burn* if it got in the eyes.)

Time Outs?
I know it's better to NOT leash when entering the enclosure
(so no dog feels it's at a "disadvantage" when getting the
initial *sniff-over*).
But What About "Time Outs" when we're not close to the "Jail"?
Is it "safe" AND "effective" to *LEASH* Fido and enforce a
brief "Time Out" beside Mom/Dad to calm an overly-excited pup?

As a Last Resort -
An :eek: Muzzle?
I HAVE one for Cinder - but she's never "tried it out"...
Got it when it seemed she'd never stop "greeting" people with
her :mad: TEETH... but she finally started getting the message
with enforced SITs (or getting tied to a table) when visitors
came into range.

"I'd" rather see a pooch have to wear a muzzle for a while
rather than be left at home.

The reason I did not come back to the park was because I felt I couldn't bring Buddy with me. Some may remember last fall, I kept Buddy on a leash all day. I took him off twice and he just made me nervous charging at other dogs, I "think" he just wanted to play.. but he also is very very protective of me, and would not let other dogs get close to me. He had NO problems with people comming near me or petting him.
He's a sweetheart.
I felt very left out, and I feel it was because I kept him on a leash. But that's what kept him calm.. as well as piece of mind for myself. Anna and Robin were the two I remember most for trying to make friends with me.
It all just felt weird.... the best thing I remember is how Sierra and Roxey became great friends, and I would have loved to have brought Sierra to the park to play with Roxey and all the other pups again.... but I just couldn't leave my Buddy boy at home. So that's where I'll stay I guess.
When I first joined PetTalk, I thought to myself... Thank God I found people just like me..then to get to go to the park and meet these people and their dogs... how cool!!!!
But then after the park..I guess I feel like I've been pushed out of the "in crowd" as funny as that sounds comming from a 28 year old... it's just the truth. I really wish I would not have gone to the park last fall. Maybe I wouldn't feel like this. Maybe I wouldn't feel like no one likes me. Last year people were making Birthday posters for people, and they had all the dogs at the park put the paw print on the poster. No one asked me to have either of my dogs put their paw prints on it.
Sorry to have gone on like this... but after seeing all the fun you guys had... my emotions have just taken over me.
I'm sure people will have things to say about this... someone ALWAYS does!!:rolleyes:
... life just sucks sometimes... it really sucks!:confused:

Cinder & Smoke
04-23-2004, 03:42 PM
Angie ~

So Sorry :( you felt left out - certainly wasn't intentional!
I remember petting BOTH Buddy and Sierra...
And I think I had Buddy on the leash for a while.

Leaving a dog behind is TOUGH - I had to do that with Cinder
when I was visiting Mom - Smokey was "welcome" in the Village as
a Therapy Dog - but ole Cinder :eek: *snapped* once -
and got herself "un-welcomed" forever :(.
So on super-Hot or -Cold days when she couldn't stay in the car -
she had to stay home and :p Kat-Sit with the Boots.

If you're not comfortable with bringing Buddy - isn't there SomeOne
that could Dawg-Sit and Play with him for the day -
and let you bring Sierra?
Or Bring-a-Friend with you - and take turns
wandering around the Park with Buddy -
there's LOTS of trails in the woods
across the road from the Bark Park.

I'd like to hear some *Thoughts* from others about how to "handle"
the *snappers* - has anyone actually USED a muzzle on a dog?
Might not be totally *phunn* for he or she who has to *wear* it -
but it would be better than staying home!

You're NOT *alone* with this problem, Angie - and we'd ALL love
to see you and BOTH Kids back at the Gathurin.

I think we should be able to come up with a workable solution!

;)

Angie,

It is good that you have shared your feelings with us. It was difficult that day with so many locals and pet talker dogs in the park to get around visiting with everyone. I am sure no one meant to make you feel left out. I guess because I usually bring 3 (and leave 2 at home) that I spend so much time making sure mine are behaving that I sometimes don't get around to visiting as much as I would like to. I think because I am from Findlay I felt responsible for what happened at the park. Because of some things that have happened with the Park board I no longer feel that way - all though I do feel I have to keep an eye on my 3some to make sure Snoopy isn't barking too much or jumping on people, and Taggert isn't finding baby bunnies and hurting them and Jack isn't growling because someone is trying to share his space under the picnic table. I really think you should try it again. As Phred said I am sure we can come up with a workable solution with Buddy.

One thing I have also found in any group situation is that sometimes that lots of people are shy or hesitant in knowing how to begin conversations with newer people. I think of myself as shy, I know others see me as standoffish. Just because you didn't feel comfortable that day that it meant anything about you personally or your dogs. As in any group, it sometimes is easier some days than others to talk to everyone. Please come back as soon as you can!

Cincy'sMom
04-23-2004, 06:00 PM
I too, am sorry you felt that way Angie.
I remember coming over to pet Buddy a few times, but I don't rememeber how much I talked to you when I did...I too am fairly shy with new people and do better talking to their dogs.

And like my mom said, I felt a certain responsibilty to watch all the dogs since my name was on the pavilon reservation. I think I sort of neglect talking to most people becuase of that....and trying to keep track of my three, making sure Spot isn't humping Huney, or Sadie isn't being too rough with anyone. And well, Cincy is usually just laying around so she's pretty easy to watch :)

We did enjoy having you there, and I hope you will give us another chance. I'm sure we can thinkof something for Buddy, even if some of us take turns walking him outside the fence.

anna_66
04-23-2004, 10:42 PM
Angie,
I too am glad you made your feelings known.

Ask anyone there, I'm not usually one to start conversations (or talk much during a conversation). I mostly play with all the dogs:D I don't know if that makes me more "unlikeable" since I'm not talking much, just playing:p
But either way, I love going and so do the girls and I bet your two would love to come back (and hope you do too)!

Karen
04-23-2004, 10:50 PM
Angie, if you come to the one in May (the Memorial Day weekend one, Paul and I will be there, and we'd love to meet you and your doggies. We won't be bringing any dogs (and Miss Hoppy stays home to guard the house) so we're free to mingle with whomever! Sorry you had a not-great time, and it's always up to you, but the invitation IS open. For a second or so, I wondered if we'd feel out of place with no dogs as our responsibility, but we were made quite welcome even before I opened the Pupperoni.

Angie,

Thats my fear if I ever decide to go to a meeting. To be left out since im younger. And people prolly don't wanna talk to a 14 year old. lol ehh, but anyways, i'm sorry if you had a no-fun time. Maybe next time it will be better. :)

Well, I hoped you enjoyed the pics. It was a great day and I can't wait to go back!

Hugs to you all....Robin :)

Great pictures, Robin!!

I *think* that's roxey in the last one-- I could be wrong though.


Hope you all don't mind, I made a new thread for the Memorial Weekend meeting.

BUT--- I mentioned it to my dad and he seemed interested (he asked me when..and I told him about registration and such.)

Then my mom mentioned how she wants to go to MI this year -- sometime around the fourth of July.. and said we could maybe make a meeting around that time.. Well see. :)


I'm printing out the registration form for Findlay now. ;)

:( :( :(

Oh I was so hoping to see you in May. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that you will be able to make it sometime this year.

I was thinking it's Roxey also. They looked so much alike! I think Star was a tad bit bigger though. Oh, Anna!!!

Oh, Amber, I wish you wouldn't feel that way. Of course we would want to talk to you. I would love it if you came. I brought Dee Dee with me and I'm pretty sure she had a good time. Dee Dee is 12 and she seemed to do well with the adults. Most of all she loved the dogs and playing with them. Which is what it was all about for her. Most importantly, if your parents ever let you come, you should give it a try. You won't ever know unless you come. I also consider myself a shy and quiet person. I may be able to get on here and chat like crazy but in person I get nervous and am afraid people won't like me and I am not very good at making conversations. I do have to admit that I am getting better at it and that is because I finally realized that I also have to be willing to make the effort. I have learned that I can't stand back and just expect people to come to me. They don't know I'm shy and nervous they might think I am just being stand-offish. It is hard, I know! I mean it has only taken me close to 40 years to figure this out....lol. In this case remember that you are at a dog park with pet talk people and if you can't think of any conversation or small talk you can always talk about the furkids...lol...that one always works! I was scared to death the first time I went, but I knew I loved seeing all those dogs and watching Katie run with them. I thought it was awesome. I also got to meet Karen and Paul the pet talk founders. That was exciting! This last meeting was my third one and I have felt more comfortable at each one. The people are great! So nice and willing to help out if you need it. My Katie acted like a big butthead that day and no one made me feel bad or gave me disapproving looks and if you have read any of the posts here they have already told me to bring her back and try again and we will figure something out. Super, Super Nice People! Just think I wouldn't have got to find that out if I had not went that first time and went back again and AGAIN! Ok, I will stop now. See I can get really chatty on here...lol...so much easier to do for some reason.

Angie, if you are reading this. I really do hope that you will come back and give us another chance. Buddy and Sierra are beautiful and I would love to see them again. BOTH of them! I also miss their pics here on Pet Talk. Please give it another try.

Robin :)

Yay! I was pretty sure I had that right. But...I couldn't find a single pic of Cincy :( I thought I took several pics of all the dogs. Cincy gets double camera time next visit!

Oh and I forgot to post the album it is HERE (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4287062591&idx=0)

I'm almost positive that we'll be going. My dad knows not to break promises with me, and he wouldn't say anything about it unless we were going. Atleast that's how it's been from past experience. :p

What great shots you got at the park Robin!

Yep, your right...it is Roxey:D And that's the second shot we got of the all popular Huney being "loved":p
This was the other

Kay, I really hope you'll be able to come this year!!!!

I guess everyone has a 'thing' or two for Huney! :eek:


I hope so too! :D
And I hope Simba was as good as last year if we do come.

Robin you got some really GREAT shots!!!! :D

I just wanted to add...when I went to the meeting, I was also one of the younger people and I'm very quiet. I probably came off as snobby/stuck up to some (I get that a lot) but it wasn't intentional, I'm just shy. However everyone was very friendly with me and I had a GREAT time. Nebo was being a bit of a brat too (and he's very talented at spilling all the water! :o ) but nobody was rude to me or anything like that. I would absolutely go again if I could, and to those who are *thinking* about going...you should! And those who tried and don't want to go again, that's unfortunate...maybe give it another try? It's always hard meeting people for the first time!

I was so nervous to meet everyone.. Remeber on the way there Amy?

It was like and excited/nervous feeling.
I didn't talk much either.. I just kind of stuck around with my dad or Amy and Melissa.
