Well it's that time of year again and I'm inviting you all to come down to the Kettering Bark in the Park (http://k99online.com/event_guide/bark04home.html)!

There will be doggie olympics, musical paws, a costume contest, owner/dog look alike contest, stupid pet tricks and much more including a 5 k-9 walk (it states only 1 dog per walker but I'm getting in touch with them on this because I'd love to do it).

We'd love for everyone to join us on Saturday the 25th of September. I know some of you had talked about coming so I hope your still planning on it:) Check out the link I included.

I hope to see you therehttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v43/anna66/Smileys/hippy.gif

If you want to *see* a http://www.MapQuest.com MAP or get
MapQuest Driving Directions - enter this info >>>

"Address" = [ E Dorthy Ln AND Woodman Center Dr ]

"City" = [ Kettering ]
"State" = [ OH ]
"Zip" = [ 45420 ]

Delco Park is in the NorthWest corner of the Intersection;
the Main Entrance to the parking lots is via
Woodman CENTER Drive -
just north of E Dorthy Lane (don't let E Dorthy LANE fool ya -
that "Lane" is a Major City Street!)

And read the WHOLE Road Sign - there are a LOT of "Woodman" derivatives!

"Woodman DRIVE" is a main city street running north/south -
(also signed as Ohio Route 835 E/W)...

"Woodman CENTER Drive" is 1/4 mile west of "Woodman DRIVE" ...

And we won't talk about "Woodman Center COURT" -
hopefully you won't stumble onto that one! :rolleyes:

Here's a City of Kettering "map" of the area -
it's detailed but does NOT show "Woodman CENTER Drive" :(
(don't 'ask' - I dunno WHY they left it off :p ) -
They mention "Krispy Kreme" as a landmark at the
Dorthy Lane & Woodman CENTER Drive intersection.

NOTE: the Kettering Map is a ".pdf file" -
you'll need the Adobe Reader program on your 'puter to *see* it!

Delco Park .pdf file MAP (http://www.ci.kettering.oh.us/pdfs/about/Delco%20Park,%20Vicinity%20Map,%206-19-02.pdf)

If you're :confused: - PM Cinder & Smoke for help!

No spotties for me :( :D

Glad you guys had fun!! I wish we could have made it down, but we did have a good time at the park up here. They HUGELY expanded from last year, and I spent 3 1/2 hours there with all four dogs, before I took the dogs home and then went back for another hour with Ralph and his borther and sis-in-law. I'll have to get my pictures up too!

Looking forward to more pics :)

Just got off the phone with Phred and thru a HUGE yawn said "tell Anna we had a great time and it was a great day and a lot of fun", so I second that!
Nothing makes me happier being with my dog and among other dog lovers and with good friends to enjoy it with. :D
We had a fabulous time!

shais_mom
09-26-2004, 12:22 AM
a little explanation about the pics that look similiar to this one is that Anna was in the handicap bathroom at the park and her girls were in there with her. I couldn't go in the stall b/c Keegan wouldn't go in there with me so I waited until Anna was done but then Phred came up to hold her.
And of course me the ever instigator I was outside calling Huney and Roxy - knowing they would just look at me they really wouldn't leave their momma!
But it made for some funny pics!

All the pictures are wonderful! I loved seeing all the doggies. I wish I could have been there.

My favorites are the individual pics of Anna, Staci and Phred with their furkids. So good to see you guys!

Staci, I got a big laugh from the pics of Roxey and Huney in the bathroom. Too funny!

Looks like you guys had good weather and a great day. Hopefully next year I will be able to make it.

Great pictures, Phred! You are getting really good with that camera. I loved them all. I really wish I would have been able to go. I missed seeing you all and it looks like such a great day. Cayenne really does look like she has grown. I hope I will get to see her sometime soon. She looks so pretty.

I forgot to mention that this was soooo cool!
It was a younger couple with a baby and 2 dogs. I heard the guy telling Phred that she had always been a strong dog and about a year ago when they had been running at a park and the next day she couldn't get up or walk. She had slipped a disc.
It would take a special person/couple to take care of a dog like that. I am not sure if I could do it - just the financial aspect of it alone. She wanted in the water so "dad" walked her down there and lifted her in! Notice her little doggles too!
