We're gonna let Dad handle this wun... DAD >>

Let's all gather round the PT puters and PLAN When and Where
our NEXT Pet Talk Gathurin / Meeting is going to be held.

The next Big Holiday is the Fourth of July - which falls on a
SUNDAY this year;
so the "Federal day-off Holiday" is on MONDAY, July 5th.

LAST Year (2003) we had a Birfday Party for Kia in lower MICHIGAN on
SUNDAY, JUNE 29 (2003) - Hosted at a *NICE* Dawg Park
(WITH Dawg Swimmin Lake!) by Kia, Kimmy and Andy.
They are "game" to Do It Again - THIS Year!

Then we "skipped" over the 4th of July (2003) and
had a July Gathurin at Findlay, Ohio, on Sunday, July 13th.

I'll reproduce the Planning Calendars down at the bottom of this post -
so you can *see* how the days & Holidays fall.

I'm not pushing for anything in particular; but some of the
"thoughts" expressed before include:

. . Sundays seem to work well - a few have to "werk" :( on Saturdays
. . 3-day *Monday* Holidays are nice - rest up after the trip!
. . BUT - can Everyone who wants to come get "OFF" on Holidays??
. . We should try to Plan Ahead for folks who can only
. . . make it to ONE event.

. . ?? IS Father's Day (Sunday, June 20) a good or bad day to
. . . hold a PT Event??

Let's *look* at the calendars >>>

We're possibly going to Michigan around July 4th...
Dad said we could go to Ohio for a few days if we do head up to MI.. and could attend another meeting. So, around July 4th would be best for us, although don't make plans FOR us.

It'd be neat to have one in the Michigan dog park, with the swimming area sometime while we're up there. :)

06-03-2004, 08:31 AM
Both the 20th and 27th of June are busy days for us, but we haven't missed a gathering yet, so one wouldn't kill us.
Go with the majority.

I'm not sure what are plans are for the weekend of the 4th, but if it is then, my dad will again be home from Florida.

06-03-2004, 12:29 PM
Since Kia's b-day falls on a Tuesday, I was thinking of having a party either the JUNE 19th & 20th or the 26th & 27th weekends.

Whether this happens or not, I'd say still plan to have a Findlay gathering on July 4th if the consensus is that people can make it.

*edit* Seeing Staci's post made me realize I didn't specify the month. oops! :o :)

06-03-2004, 01:41 PM
I am not sure if I can make the 20th gathering. I am going away for that weekend and not sure when we are coming home.
I have to work the weekend of July 19th and 20th But the rest as far as I know are free...

But Don't plan around me either, the only one I missed has been Kia's birthday last year (:() b/c I was in Chicago. Let Majority rule.


06-03-2004, 01:44 PM
But would we be able to get the shelter house on the 4th at this close of a date?
I know that this year at the park over Memorial day was not last last year at all. But I am not sure what the 4th would be.
just a thought

06-03-2004, 02:06 PM
I am pretty certain that I will not be able to make it on July 4th. The family is supposed to have a big get together and if I don't make that my parents will probably have my head...lol. I'll check with the family to make sure that is still on. Either way I have already put my request in at work and that doesn't even mean I will get that day off. Don't plan around me though. Like the others have said go with the majority. I will always be able to make it to others.

Staci's right :( ...

We'z too late to grab #7 for the 4th! :mad:
Both #6 and #7 are "paid for" by someone else on Sunday, July 4th!

But #7 *IS* available for the Holiday MONDAY - July 5th...

So Dad RESERVED Pavilion #7 for MONDAY, July 5th!

*OR* - we could have Pavilion #7 on the SATURDAY - July 3rd...
But gotta know *QUICK* to change it before someone grabs the 3rd...

He also checked on Labor Day SUNDAY - September 5th...
And he also Reserved #7 for Labor Day Sunday -
kuz #6 (next door) was already :eek: "gone".


Do we really *WANT* our regular #7 Hang-out on MONDAY, the 5th????

Or would we wann do the Gathurin onna SATURDAY???

Ebberbuddie *Check In Quick* -
Final decisions anna Munnie gotta be in to Parks by next week!

1) SATURDAY, July 3, or MONDAY, July 5 ???

2) Labor Day SUNDAY, Sept 5 ????

06-03-2004, 02:40 PM
I'll check with the family and see if there are plans or not for the 4th.

I'll either be in Atlanta or Toronto Labor Day weekend.

I changed my previous post to reflect that I meant weekends in June not July for Kia's b-day. :)

06-03-2004, 02:53 PM
I would rather stay in Ohio. My parents wouldn't want to drive all the way to a PT meeting in Michigan. I know for sure I can't come to the july 4th, we are having a big family get-together. I'll have to check with those other days though. :)

06-03-2004, 03:47 PM
Is there any chance of putting together a MI meeting within the 5th-15th of July? (That's normally the times we stay in MI, not including before the 4th or on the 4th..)

06-03-2004, 09:28 PM

you guys aren't gonna go like june28th-june12 or so like we did last time?

06-03-2004, 10:53 PM
I don't know when we're leaving to go, but I figured sometime AFTER the 4th would be better for a meeting than before... so I left those dates out.

06-03-2004, 11:00 PM
Oh ok...that makes sense

06-04-2004, 12:32 AM
Monday the 5th doesn't work for me at all.
I will have to work that day. We at the hospital honor the holiday on the 4th and it's back on Monday the 5th. And I don't have enough vacation time after my grandma's funeral to use for it.
I would be able to do the 3rd or the week after would work better for me. (And it sounds like a lot of other people also)

Cinder & Smoke
06-04-2004, 12:44 PM
:eek: We need to HEAR from summore Folks!!

Sounds like July 5th isn't so swift a day...
Do you want me to cancel/release #7 on the 5th??
I could switch our "hold" on #7 to the 3rd of July (Saturday)...
but if the whole 4th of July weekend is bad for most folks...
Sould we plan on doing FINDLAY on July 11 or 18 ??

That might open up some "space" between Kia's D-Day Party in Michigan
(in late June) and a mid-JULY Findlay Gathurin.

Let's try this ~
I'll send Parks a check for $90 today - doing THAT will set us
up for *locking a day* with just a phone call.

We'll *lock up* Labor Day Sunday (Sept 5th).

Then, whatever we pick for July and August dates,
we can do with a phone call.

BUT - in fairness to Others who may want #7 over the 4th of July
Holiday weekend - we SHOULD decide purty Quick-Like -
*IF* we want either July 3 or 5 at Findlay!

Kimmy! ...
Consider that June 20 is DAD's DAY!
Makes no never-mind to ME (I'll have my Kids WITH me)...
But can everyone else "skip" being Home wiff Dad?
'Course SATURDAYs in Michigan is still a possibility, too.

C'mone Folks - let's HEAR some more voices here!

06-04-2004, 01:25 PM
Well scratch the weekend of June 20th. Not only is it Father's Day but also NASCAR at Michigan International Speedway. :eek: Can't miss that! :rolleyes: :D

Looks like we're leaning more towards June 26th or 27th. Need to check with Andy and see what works best for him and our families. I'd like my parents to be able to come out and check out the Bark Park. :)

06-04-2004, 01:42 PM
I think we should do it the next weekend, Phred. I just don't think that weekend would be good for a lot of people. There are more 'probably not's' then Probably's.
But then we will miss Carl coming home from FL :( But Maybe Diana and I can have a mini PT meeting ;) and Amy's crew.
Keegan really likes Carl! Must be in the name - that is her Grandpa and Great Grandpa's name. ;)

06-05-2004, 02:54 PM

Kia's watchin da NASCAR Race on Dad's Day;
an it looks like there's not much *interest* in
a 4th of July Gathurin...

Let's *PLAN* Kia's Birfday Blast first;
then skip a couple weeks and plan a Findlay Gathurin in July.

On Friday I sent a $90 Deposit/Reservation check off to Parks -
that's good for 3 x $30 Reservations/Rentals of Pavilion #7.

We HAVE RESERVED #7 on Labor Day SUNDAY - September 5th -
So mark your calendars, ask for that day *off* -

PLAN your B-Day Partee! :)

06-07-2004, 01:02 PM
I have not posted because living here in Findlay I can pretty well make it any time. Carl will be home the 4th but that isn't a good enough reason to have a meeting. Any weekend will be good for me and my crew.

Cinder & Smoke
06-08-2004, 02:13 PM

OK, let's Try this - again...

Since the 4th of July Weekend didn't seem too *hot* -
I called Parks and told them we didn't want #7 on
either July 3rd or 5th (4th was already gone).

Hey Kia ~~
Any word on WHEN your B-Day Partee is gonna be????

As for a July Gathurin at FINDLAY -
only a couple days are available for Pavilion #7 -

As of this afternoon (2 PM) - #7 is Available on
two Sundays - July 11 and July 18...
July 25 is NOT available - Parks is holding a Big
"2nd Annual Hancock Heritage Days Festival"
on July 24 & 25 - BIG Crowd in the Park and
Parking can't be guaranteed so they just won't allow reservations.

If we want #7 on either July 11 or 18 -
we need to "Reserve" it pretty Quick-Like!

On SATURDAY, June 26th, I will be hosting Kia's birthday party at Orion Oaks Bark Park in Lake Orion, MI.

Anyone and everyone is invited, even if you don't have a dog. :)

The Mundane Info:

Where: Orion Oaks Bark Park
When: SATURDAY, June 26th
Time: Roughly 1:00 p.m.

The Bark Park entrance is located on Joslyn Rd. (exit 83 off of I-75) between Waldon Rd. and Clarkston Rd.

A day or annual permit is needed to PARK in the Bark Park lot, but no permit is needed for the dogs. Day permits are sold at the Main Entrance to Orion Oaks Park on Clarkston Rd., between Baldwin and Joyslyn Rd.

I'm not sure if the 'guard' to the Bark Park lot sells day passes or not. I'll ask him next time we go.

Having a permit will not guarentee a spot in the lot. It is small and can fill up quickly, especially on nice days.

Canterbury Village is less than a mile south of the Bark Park. Andy and I have parked there and walked to the Bark Park. It's a nice walk. There is also a school parking lot just Northeast of the Bark Park entrance. I've parked there before too. We've recently been told that anyone parking in the school lot will be ticketed, but we've had no problems.

So, for those that don't want to risk that, I have no problems shuttling those that want to park at Canterbury to the Bark Park and back, if you don't want to walk.

Links you'll need:
Orion Oaks Main Page (http://www.co.oakland.mi.us/parksrec/ppark/orion.html)

Mapquest Map of Area (http://www.mapquest.com/maps/map.adp?searchtype=address&formtype=search&countryid=250&addtohistory=&country=US&address=W+Clarkston+Rd+%26+Joslyn+Rd&city=Lake+Orion&state=MI&zipcode=48362&historyid=&submit=Get+Map)

Now to the Fun Stuff:
Orion Oaks' Bark Park offers seven fenced acres with lake access for dogs to swim, wide-open spaces, woods and fields; drinking water is available on site.

I will be providing refreshments again. :) If I can get a decent headcount, I'll have Frosty Paws for the pups.

All in all, just come on out and have a good time. :D

06-11-2004, 05:38 PM
Whenever we all decide on a date, I need to know some stuff.

If it's a day my mom is off work we can come down. (she promised me last time but she worked)

Okay. Elvis is 4 months old. How old does a puppy need to be to get in the park? What do we bring? if I came it would just be Elvis. Katie isn't too great with tons of dogs.

06-11-2004, 06:06 PM

I'm pretty sure July 18th would work for me. As of right now it looks like both me and Alden would be able to come that day. That is not a 100% guarantee though.

If that is not what the majority is though, don't worry about us we will be able to make it to another one.

Hope this helps, Phred.

Robin :)

06-11-2004, 06:19 PM
We may not be able to attend either meetings, since June 26th may be too early for us, and the 18th too late. Besides, that's my mom's birthday. I'm not sure though, because I don't even know what dates we're going to MI this year.

Amber -- Puppies have to be atleast 16 weeks of age, so yes he's old enough. You'll have to register and get a permit for the Findlay dog park to be able to go.

06-11-2004, 06:24 PM
Yesss! Im glad he's old enough!

We yet need to get him liesenced, so were do we get this permit/register?

06-11-2004, 07:26 PM
lol, yeah I know Im always asking...But it seems so complicated

06-11-2004, 07:31 PM
It's not. All you have to do is fill out the forms properly, send in the 10 dollars along with the form, and you're set. They'll send your permit in the mail or have you pick it up at the park office.

You of course, have to have proof of vaccinations/shots, as well as tags. That's not complicated either.

All we did was take a picture of the reciepts we recieve each vet visit, which lists the shots they recieved, and printed it out.

06-11-2004, 11:21 PM
Yes, Amber if it too complicated for you have one of your parents read it. It is NOT hard. You just have to do it!

I am pretty sure have to work the weekend of the 17th and 18th. So I won't be able to make it that weekend. But I will double check tomorrow.

06-12-2004, 04:44 PM
thanks guys!

06-15-2004, 07:25 AM
I'm sorry we haven't responded much. Right now our weekends are so busy, I don't know when we could make one. I don't think there is anything planned for the18th if thatis still an option, but ust about everything before and after through Aug 1 is taken. So much to do, so little time!!! Maybe if we had 4 day work weeks EVERY week!

06-15-2004, 01:12 PM
I have to work the weekend of July 17th and 18th but if that is what rules for majority, Keegan and I could come later. I would get off at 3 that day, and it isn't like I live tooooo far away! ;)

06-15-2004, 03:24 PM
I will be in Williamsburg VA the weekend of the 17th and 18th. But I'll be thinking of all ya' all. Maybe my babysitter will bring Gabbie out to the festivities.

Alden and I are on vacation 7/18 -7/25. Those weekends work great for us. Any other weekend I need to get a request in at work.

Let's try to set a date!

I hope it's not the 18th now. :(

I asked my mom is she will be off that week, and she said she wont because she is working for my brother cause he is going to a concert.

Will there ever be a time were I can come?! :(

I really want to meet you all, and let you guys meet Elvis.

06-22-2004, 12:50 AM
The 18th will work for me, I will just be late.
I hope that I will still get to see the MI people and Anna. :(

06-22-2004, 07:56 AM
The 18th would work for us, and Staci I'm sure we could stay late:)

Sorry guys :( We'll see you Labor though!

Well, I am home and have my pictures ready to go. Jack got a little tired about 6:00 and started being a little ouchy every time any one came near him. We had been at the park since 11:30 so I guess he had a right to want to go home. It rained a little after Phred, Anna and our dogs got there but by the time Robin and Alden arrived teh rain had stopped and we had a nice afternoon. It was a small gathering - I had Taggert, Snoopy and Jack, Phred had Cinder and Smoke, Anna brought Roxey and Huney and Robin had both Tori and Katie. Later in the afternoon, Jennifer, Anna's friend came too with her 3 huskies, Zachary, Cayenne and ? (oh getting old is tough!). Some regulars showed up - Scooter the little dachsund/shepherd mix, Azee, the rottweiler, Rocky the lab, Jesse, the jack russell and a few others.

The food was delicious, the dogs were great and so was the adult conversation. Another great Pet Talk Gathering. NOW on to pictures.
First here are my three chained together so I can eat:'

Great pictures, Diana! Loved seeing you and the furkids.

Just wanted to check in and let you all know that we made it home safely. The girls were crashed out in the back seat. Tori on the floor and Katie on the seat.

We had a great time and the weather wound up being real nice. Like Diana said good food, good conversation and great doggies!

I have lots of doggie pics but I'm too tired to mess with them right now. I'll try and get to them soon.

I hope everyone else made it home safe and sound.

Also, Just want to mention that we missed some of you regular Findlay Dog Parkers! Amy and Ralph, Kim and Andy, Donna, Carrie and all of your furkids! I'm probably leaving out someone but we missed you all!

Hugs to everyone.....Robin :)

07-18-2004, 10:04 PM
Robin, when you coming to Florida?? I would love to see you and the girls. I might have to drive up there! Actually, Duke and I would love to do that. Maybe if they have a meeting in October or so, if I found out enough in advance, I could apply for the time off. I think it would be a great adventure.

07-18-2004, 10:34 PM
Yea we made it home too!!!
POOPED but Keegan is sleeping happily.
While we were late b/c I had to work, those silly people waited to fix supper/lunch for Keegan and I!!! We had a GREAT time!!!
I am off to d/l my pics!

Thanks everyone for coming and making it a GRRRReat day and we hope to see everyone else the next time!!!!

Well, needless to say we are home (sorry I didn't post last night, had to spend a little time with the hubby and Angus;) ).

As always we had a wonderful time. We got really lucky it didn't rain (even though it sprinkled on us a couple of times) and it turned out to be a beautiful day with great people & their pups! There were a couple of tiffs between a few dog (not naming any names since one of them was mine:rolleyes: ) But overall as you can see by everyone's pictures, they all got along just great....as usual:)

On with the pictures!

Poor Jack just couldn't seem to get away from the barking dogs!
But finally he found himself a good spot to get away from all of that noise:D
Another shot of Huney & Spot playing (she had such a blast this time!!!!)
Some very gorgeous dobbies

more in the next post

07-19-2004, 10:02 AM

Everyone taking a break
I was in Husky Heaven yesterday! Look at all the huskies (and one wanna be;)).
Trying to find out who's going to be queen bee
And Star was definately the queen:eek:

sorry, just a few more...

07-19-2004, 10:10 AM
But she's the queen of my heart:D (Even though she turned into a bratty kid and we had to go home:rolleyes: )
And OMG!!!! I would have loved to take this guy home in a second!!! He made me think of Angus so much (I wish he was young like that again)

Boy was big brother glad to see us come home!
And I guess little miss bratt just wanted some one on one time with her mommy, we came home and played:eek:
Hope you enjoyed the pictures...the rest are
HERE (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=4286183449)

Again, we had a great time and can't wait to do it again (but hopefully with more of our regulars there....we missed you guys!!!!)

07-19-2004, 11:05 AM
The pictures look sooooo great. I've been thinking of all the dogs and the fun we missed during my entire 10hr. drive home yesterday. I didn't get back from Williamsburg until midnight Sunday. Hey Diana....any potato salad left? You know it is my favorite. :) Can't wait to check out the rest of the pics (when I get off work that is ....shhhhh lol).

07-19-2004, 11:24 AM
Great pictures everyone!

Diana, thanks again for watching Kia Friday night. I think it was more than obvious that she didn't want to leave! :eek: :D

It was great seeing you and your pups again and meeting Oreo and Dazzi!

07-21-2004, 12:03 PM
Thanks for the nice comments about my pictures everyone.

Diana, my camera is a Olympus camedia D-510. It is a 2.1 megapixel. I think it actually does a pretty good job and if I actually took the time to learn how to use all the functions on it just think what great pics I could get....LOL I keep wanting to get a new one with more megapixels but I don't think I actually need it. Its all just a matter of want, want, want....:p

Robin :D
