I need to put my request in at work. If the boss says no problem you can count me in!! If the boss says no way...hmmm...I might suddenly develope a nasty virus and just have to call in ;)

I'll see what happens. My boss is usually pretty good about this.

Can't wait to see everyone again!

Unfortunately, I'll be at a family bash at my newphew's house. We THINK it's because there's a "special announcement" to be made (like I'm gonna be a great aunt???? :D :D) I'll let you know. Have fun guys! See you at the next one.

I can't make it to this one. If you plan one in November, please do it right away. It's not like I can ask for time off the week before. We have to do it in as much advance as possible. That's why those days were already taken. I'm so depressed because I thought we were all finally going to get together.

Sorrie you can't make it over Labor Day. :(
Sadly, we've also had some "regrets" from
Local Regulars for the Labor Day Bash. :(

We probably WILL do another one in late October or early November -

BUT- with Ohio's "weather" - we kinda wait 'n see just what the
weather starts to do after Labor Day...
(It could be :eek: *snowin* in November!)
Be a shame for you guys to get all the way *UP Here* and find
that we're havin a Bad Weather Day!

With that in mind - consider THIS >>

Historically -
the MEMORIAL DAY SUNDAY *event* draws the Largest Crowd -
folks who come Loooong Distances to attend seem to attend THAT one.

IF we can confirm next Memorial Day as a *go date* -
you Floridians could start NOW to Plan To Attend! ;)

Aww, I wish I could take a road map of the U.S. and fold "in" the middle so that California was a lot closer to Ohio.......then I could just drive right over and meet all of you and the pups!

It always sounds as though your gatherings are so much "phun"and the dogs just love every minute of it.

Have a great time everyone!

Tina... we raft the lower new river with Extreme Expeditions.
The campground is in Fayetteville, WV.

As it looks now... we probably are NOT going rafting.
So.... it's looking good for me to be able to come on Labor Day!!

I just have to convince myself and Sierra that Buddy will be okay home alone all day long.:( :(

My parents rafted the Cheat and New River some years ago. :)

BUTTTTT...
Don't come ON "Labor Day" :eek: ...
Kuz *WE'RE all gonna be there on **SUNDAY** -
the Day BEFORE the real Monday Holiday! :D

(Findlay Dawk Park *BASH* is on *SUNDAY*, Sept 5th.)




I just have to convince myself and Sierra that
Buddy will be okay home alone :( all day long.

Poor Buddy! :(

Any chance of finding a Neighborhood Kid that would spend
the day at your house and Dawg-Sit??

Kfamr
08-18-2004, 09:51 PM
I'm still working on my dad. If we do come, it'll only be us and Kiara...atleast I think that would be to best idea.

I wonder if any Ohio-ians would let us bunk up at their house? Hehe, kidding. :p But, it would save us money! :p

As of now, i'm not sure if we're coming.
But, then again.. the last times I wasn't sure and we ended up going! And I wasn't sure we were ever going to get a third dog.. and now we have 3! :p

My dad said that we would definitely probably go next year though.

No... we don't have "nice" neighbors like that...My hubby should be at the house for a while... but we all know how much Buddy loves my hubby!!!:rolleyes:
But then again... maybe they could bond. Who knows...

Besides... Bud's such a Mamma's boy that if he can't be with mommy... he doesn't wanna be with anyone!! :D
Maybe I can find a friend to come with me, so that we can take turns outside the fence with him.

KAT Famblies don't need NUFFIN! :D

It's just the DAWGGIES that need to have a Park PERMIT to
enter the Dog Park area.

"Humans" - as long as they are current on their "shots" -
don't need a permit! :D

KATs are welcome to attend - and we've HAD KATs attend -
but they always *hang out* at the picnic pavilion and don't
usually wander into the Doggie Domain.

PLAN to ATTEND - you don't really NEED a Dawg to have *PHUNN*!
But - I'm sure we can arrange to LOAN You a Dawg -
if you feel the need!! ;)

Thanks Phred! How does it work with food? Does everyone bring a potluck type thing??

Deb (and any other First Timers at Findlay) ~

Best suggestion is READ the Thread from our previous
Gathurin at Findlay >>>

"When's our Next Ohio Gathurin..." (http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/showthread.php?s=&threadid=50486)

You'll get a "feel" for the planning AND the "results"...

After we get an idea of how many Hoomins are going to attend -
everyone kinda *volunteers* to bring a Favorite Dish
to share with the group ~ most ANYthing that you'd bring to a Picnic goes...
Usually the only Food PROBLEM we have is there's TOO Much and
TOO Many for just one day! ;)

The Main Course is usually Burgers & Brats cooked on the grill;
and enough Salads, Sides, and Deserts to send everyone home
with a WELL-Stuffed tummy!

Next Week we'll prolly add the Menue Post for folks to sign up on.

We might go if mom and dad go.

How would we get a permit for Muffin?

Oops, just found the answer to previous question! Thanks!

sirrahved
08-19-2004, 01:04 PM
Okay, now I have more questions... sorry!

Is it allowed for an out of state dog to get a permit there?

How do you get an "annual health certificate" and do you mail it with the app?

Will they mail my permit to me?

I think that's all the questions I have for now, thanks!

Cinder & Smoke

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.
(From December 1 to December 31 of the Following Year)
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 August 19 of 2003 -
he's Good to Go!

And a 3 year Rabies shot is good if it was given
AFTER August 19, 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. ;)

Cinder & Smoke
08-19-2004, 01:23 PM
Q: Is it allowed for an out of state dog to get a permit there?

A: YES! Dogs can "live" ANYwhere...
But they DO need to be "Licensed"
by their HOME City, Town, County, or State;
and WEAR their "License Tag".

Q: How do you get an "annual health certificate"
and do you mail it with the app?

A: Read post above...
"Annual Health Certificate" isn't really required -
Parks is happy to see a Dated RECEIPT with the VET's Name on it
that shows the Dog(s) were SEEN by the Vet AND
Received "Annual Vaccinations".
A Seperate RABIES VACCINATION Report/Receipt is also required.
Make and SEND *COPIES* of the original receipts -
WITH the Application and Payment -
Parks will NOT return your receipts!

Q: Will they mail my permit to me?

A: Yuppers!! Via gud ole Furst Klass US Mail! :D

;) .

sirrahved
08-19-2004, 01:28 PM
Thanks... I found that after I posted, too *blushes*

My final question... will I still have enough time to get a permit? It sounds like fun!

Cinder & Smoke
08-19-2004, 01:38 PM
Q: Will I still have enough time to get a permit?

A: Depends mostly on You...

Parks will only take a day or two to *look* at the Application
and Mail Out the Permit Card...

If You have the Vaccination & Rabies receipts;
and send everything required by sometime next week -
No Sweat!

:D

Thanks Anna! :D


I'm curious -- Since we already have a permit, would be have to register again with Kiara.. or would be just be able to add her to our current one?


I think my dad would really let me go if my aunt hadn't taken $200+ of my money. :( I could have paid for half of the trip.

Kiara can be ADDED to your current Permit...

The COST to ADD her depends upon
How Many Dogs are already ON that Permit ...

If your/Dad's Permit only has Simba & Nala on it now...
Then Kiara is a FREE-BEE... because you can have THREE Dogs
on ONE Permit for $10.00.

You'd just send in another Application Form,
*WITH* Kiara's Vet / Shot / Rabies Receipts -
and a *Note* asking that she be *ADDED* to your current Permit.
Be sure to use the SAME Name as you did before.

IF Kiara will be the FOURTH Dog on the permit -
you'll have to send an additional $5.00 with the App & Vet Papers.

;)

I'm going to try my hand at homemade doggie treats, but haven't decided on what to make for the human treats yet. I'm open to requests and suggestions, and can make just about anything (take into consideration the two-hour car ride it will have to make, though!)

Does the question mark by pies mean that you NEED pies? I could make a couple of pies...



edit: after the third attempt I think I finally accomplished this whole "posting" task. It's late (early) and I guess I'm not really functioning!

Devon has been cooking up a storm - making homemade doggie biscuits and trying several recipes and that girl CAN COOK! I am making a cake I have been DYING to try but needed and adventuresome group to spring it on:rolleyes: Hopefully ya'll are adventuresome. We will see ;)

Me too! Now this is two trips I've missed and Kay is getting to go twice. I'm so depressed :( Anna and Robin, would you mind if Duke and I just planned a visit some time? That way, I would be guaranteed to have the time off from work. I would love to come in November to see the leaves changing. I miss that so much from Tennessee. Have fun everyone.

This is what I came up with:
Myself, Robin, Kay & her dad, Debbie (husband?) & son & DIL, John, Staci, Diana, Amy (Ralph?), Clara, Angie, Gabby's Mom, Jennifer, (Amber?)

I don't really venture to the meeting section very often, so I am just now seeing this thread... but, my dad is going to be in Mansfield, OH that weekend to visit some of his relatives.

I wasn't planning on going with him, but I would love to meet you all, even if I can't bring the furkids. My dad doesn't like dawgs in the cars. Besides, I think its too late to get a permit for my doggies anyways.

Anyway, I'll talk to my dad and see if he minds if I go with him, and if I do, if we would have time to make a trip to Findlay. :)

ONE Hour and THIRTY Minutes to drive.

I will definitely be there on Sunday. I have already made arrangments for Penny to stay at my sister's and Leo and I will be there with "bells on".

I am sooooo looking forward to it!!!:D

And yes Phred - I have my "permit" - got it several months ago

I will be leaving about 5am (or maybe later :o ) so Leo and I will be there about noon or there after.

I will probably not be bringing any stuff (except for me and Leo), since we have such a long drive - but I have a feeling nobody will really care. :D

NOTE**** PREVIOUS POST is for CLARA ONLY!!
She's coming from Buffalo, New York -
EVERYone else disregard that route - you'll get **LOST**!
=================================================

CLARA ~
Pick up an OHIO State Map at the Info Booth
on I-90 when you cross into Ohio!

And ADD these details to the above post -
suggest you print both the previous post and this one.


23. Turn RIGHT onto OH-568. (0.50 miles)
. . (You'll be headed WEST towards the City of Findlay)

24. Turn LEFT onto TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY 241. (0.16 miles)
. . There's a "Hancock Parks / Riverbend" sign here;
. . and you can see an "Antique, Rickety Bridge" that you'll cross over.
. . Cross the Bridge and you come to a STOP sign at Township Rd 208.

25. Turn LEFT onto TOWNSHIP HIGHWAY 208. (0.63 miles)
. . See "Riverbend Rec Area" sign as soon as you turn Left onto Twp Rd 208
. . Drive past a "Ranger Station" on your left and the road will force you
. . to turn 90 degrees right.... slow down!

26. Turn RIGHT into the FIRST Driveway / Entrance to "the Lodge" -
. . a New & Fancy Pavilion/Meeting Building that sits close to the road.

"Our PT Headquarters" Pavilion # 7 is the First Shelter you'll be looking
at as you enter the parking lot.
There are also small, yellow signs for the Dog Park.

NOTE: to see & Print a Detailed map of the Findlay & Dog Park vicinity...

Start with www.MapQuest.com
*click* "MAPS"
Enter this location in each box:
Address = [ Township Road 207 AND Township Road 208 ]
City = [ Findlay ]
State = [ OH ]
Zip can be left blank

You'll get a SUPER Zoomed-in map showing a corner of the Findlay
Reservoir (Looks like a Square, Blue, Lake) with the "Lacation Star"
about 1/4 mile south of wher the Dog Park actually IS.
The Dog Park is about where the [208] box is on this map.

ZOOM - OUT 1 step at a time to see slightly larger areas..
Twp Rd 241 is labeled if you get the Zoom & Centering "just right".

Pay Attention to the MapQuest MILEAGE at each step

If you "ask" any of the "Natives" for help - you're going to
the Hancock County Park District's "RiverBEND Recreation Area" -
"east" and a touch "south-east" of Findlay (and in Marion Township).
Another Landmark is the "Big Findlay Reservior".

Don't know if any of you who are going have seen it, but HERE (http://petoftheday.com/talk/showthread.php?s=&threadid=57920) is the reason why.

I'm going to miss you all terribly. I wish everyone could just come to our house (I really need some comfort from all my friends and their furkids). We have a big yard and even a "time out" pen for anyone who gets out of line:p And of course I have lot of doggie treats and the hamburgers all ready in the fridge (but Debbie will be picking them up so you all don't go hungry...hope you like them!).

Have a great day guys and keep us in your prayers.

I hope no one minds, but I have decided to go and keep my dear friend Anna company tomorrow. Tori and I have decided to go and cheer up Auntie Anna! :D We know she is worried about Angus and feeling a bit bummed about missing the dog park meeting so we are headed her way and hoping to ease her mind a bit.

I hope everyone understands. I will miss you all and hope you have a great time. Please give all the pups a hug from me and hopefully we will catch you all at the next get together.

We love ya, Anna and will see you tomorrow.......Robin and Tori :)

This was my first time at the Bark Park and I took a few pictures when I first arrived and then just got so caught up in the visiting that I forgot all about my camera:eek: Hopefully Kay and some others did much better but I will get ya'll started by posted the few I DID take:D
When we first arrived, we were greeted by THIS guy - I asked "are you Phred??" and he answered "I dunno"
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/sirrahbed/Findlay/Phred.jpg
But he was with these two cuties that I recognized as Cinder and Smoke:D
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/sirrahbed/Findlay/cindersmoke.jpg
This was my contribution to the food table - being the ONLY cat person there - I thought it was appropriate:rolleyes: They were all good sports and ate it too:p

Here's the only picture I remembered to take before I got to yakking and eating!!
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v170/sirrahbed/Findlay/barkparkfolks.jpg
If I remember the folks I met - this is Clara, Snoopy on the table, some ladies I can't remember Diana, Staci, and Keegan grabbing the shadiest spot in the park:D

I think PT folks are some of the nicest folks on the planet.:D On the way, we stopped to visit with Anna and Mark and met Huney and Roxey - also met up with Kay and her dad, Ken and the adorable Kiara. Kay and Ken were going to head back to Anna & Mark's with "doggie bags" of food for them and Robin who spent her day keeping Anna company.
~Enjoy~ Sorry I did not take more but this should whet your appetite for what will follow:p

We are home now too and I will see what I can do to get some pictures uploaded. We were some of the last to leave, about 8:30. Staci was leaving the same time we were and Phred still had to put his things in the car, but was heading out too.

As usual, it was a fun day for all...lots of playing, and stealing treats for the dogs, and good food and converstion for the humans. I think everyone went home happy, tired and full :)

Leo and I had a great time and I really enjoyed meeting everyone. We got home about 10:30 last night and were both pretty pooped. Leo curled up and slept the entire way home. All the dogs were great and except for a few "back off" snaps - all they all seemed to have a good time. I think Leo was a little intimidated by the sheer number of new dogs to meet (he is not usually that clingy), but by the end of the day he was quite comfortable. We will definitely be coming back because I want to meet everyone that wasn't able to make it this time.

I am not the photographer that Kayanne is but here is the link to my pictures:

All of the pictures and albums are just great. For me it is difficult to tell who is who (of the dogs) and I laughed when Cloverfdx, immediately found a "stranger" in the midst.

I bet everyone was just exhausted at the end of a very long and happy day.

:D Exactly MY reaction Gini!! It was amazing to me how everyone knew just which dog was which , who they belonged to and who was missing, etc. Being a cat only person myself - I couldn't even keep the ones there straight!! I TRIED!!: After awhile, I couldn't even pick out my granddog among all the black lab mixes!!:eek:
Now give me cats, and I pretty much know the cats:D

Pretty hard for him to take his eyes off a treat!
Kiara must be sumpin Speshul!! ;)

And if you haven't gathered, from looking at the albums ~
Kay's lil Kiara is One **CUTE** lil Pup!! :)

Although small - Kiara showed NO fear of the Big Dawgs;
and wasn't a bit intimidated by them!
And What a Personality she has!! She **SMILES** at everyone!! :)

So where's OUR pictures???
After almost TWO hours; Dad has managed to get ImageStation to
successfully load **HALF** of ONE photo! :mad:

I'm not sure who was more excited to see who....
Nala could not contain herself and just wiggled all over the place
Simba was jumping up and running at full speed
Kiara was trying not to get trampled while chasing after them and hwile they chased her.

All of them are running aorund in the living room and dad is asleep..... of course i'm on the computer!

Pictures will hopefully be posted sometime tonight!
