View Full Version : Kettering Bark in the park!

09-01-2004, 11:18 PM
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!

What a fun day we had today! There were so many great dogs and people. I took tons of pictures as did Staci & Phed.

First off here's some little spotties for Captain & Delidog
Roxey & Huney meeting a 9 mo. old husky
Look at this cutie:)
This was an awesome Mastiff!
And here he is trying to cool off in the baby pool:eek:

More to come

09-25-2004, 11:31 PM
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 :)

09-25-2004, 11:31 PM
An awesome great dane
And a gorgeous rottie
We even seen a Huney look alike! (kinda hard to see, she was behind the guys leg)
Another beautiful mastiff (he was a year old)
And then there was this guy. His name was Dan. He was up for adoption (if we were ready for another dog, this guy would have been coming home with me:)) He had such beautiful eyes.

Just a few more pictures in the next post:)

09-25-2004, 11:37 PM
A black standard poodle (just for you Pam;))
Keegan taking a swim in the lake. Boy was that girl having fun:D
A great picture of Staci and Keegan
And of course one of Phred, Cinder and Smoke
And one of me and the girls

There are more picturesHERE (http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=3495675093) if you want to take a look.
Hope you enjoyed!

09-25-2004, 11:40 PM
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!


Here are my pics.

09-25-2004, 11:47 PM
Wow that looks like so much fun! Lots of gorgeous pooches there :D

09-25-2004, 11:47 PM
Here is a video of Cinder and Smoke Jumping off the dock.

09-25-2004, 11:53 PM

Congrats!!! I've been without a computer at home since last Sunday and just got it back tonight. I'll have to search for a thread about her arrivial!

09-26-2004, 12:10 AM
I absolutley LOVE all the pictures! I wish I could have been there, I would love to meet all of you:D I like the pics of The English Mastiff and The beautiful Great Dane!

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!

09-26-2004, 01:41 AM
LOL, look at Keegan in this pic. :D Wonder what she's telling Miss Huney?!? :D


09-26-2004, 09:24 AM
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.

Robin :)

09-26-2004, 09:43 AM
Love this pic of Keegan, Staci.


Give her a hug from me!

Robin :)

09-26-2004, 11:58 AM
Thanks Robin! I really like the one Anna took of her also! :p

09-26-2004, 12:11 PM
Staci, those bathroom pics are too funny! I love them:D

09-27-2004, 09:04 AM
LOL! LOL! Thanks Anna for thinking of me with this!
And I see a sign there that says Pug Rescue! WOW! I wish I could have been there. Why is Ohio so far away! These pictures are all terrific!!!! You guys are so lucky to be able to get together so much! ;)

09-27-2004, 09:06 AM
Ohh Anna... I like this pup!!

You all looked like you had fun!!

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.

Robin :)

09-28-2004, 03:29 PM
I love the photo's! Wish I could have gone, but didn' t pay attention to PT to see there was a meeting - and had another appointment I had to be at on that day - maybe next time.....Go visit the PT'rs, and visit the family down there as well...... :)

Glad it was a great day for you all....looks like a few where really tuckered out by the end of the day!

09-28-2004, 10:11 PM
You got some wonderful pictures there Phred. Thanks for posting them:)

09-29-2004, 02:08 PM
I'm originally from Dayton (Vandalia)... I was home that weekend - even though I don't have a doggie, it would have been nice to meet you all!!! :o oh well!

09-29-2004, 02:26 PM
aaww what a bummer!
Doggie or no we would have loved to meet you too and you would have had a great time! :)
Let us know when you come back home sometime - maybe we can arrange something! ;)

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!
