This is what i've come up with for Amy, My dad, Nebo, Kiara and I for our trip to Ohio...

Tuesday.. March 22nd - Drive to OH
Wednesday.. March 23rd - OH
Thursday.. March 24th - OH
Friday.. March 25th - OH
Saturday.. March 26th - OH
Sunday.. March 27th - OH
Monday.. March 28th - OH
Tuesday.. March 29th - Drive home from OH

I've compiled a poll as to which dates we'd be there, and which would be the best for a meeting in Findlay.

Minus the driving dates (and the 23rd) - please, those of you who would intend on coming - vote for which fits best.
I DO have school starting on the 28th, so these are the days that work best for us to be in Ohio.

I'm hoping to atleast see a few people there, even if it isn't the regular big crowd.

I just wanted to add this idea I have...

I think it'd be a ton of fun!!

Whichever day we pick..
We could have someone take easter eggs and hide them around the park - the people and their dogs walk around picking up the eggs (each egg could have a milk bone in it or something) - and whoever gets the most eggs would get some sort of "grand prize" or something.

Amy and I think it'd be A LOT of fun for both dog and owner, and just something to ponder about. ;) I thought about it a while ago.

I think that I could probably make it to any of those dates. Just as long as I have 2 weeks notice (3 would be even better) so that I can get my request in at work. My boss is pretty good about giving me days off. Even if I can't I can always *cough, cough* call in sick ;)

I think an Easter Egg hunt sounds wonderful and festive! I'm in!

Robin :D

I think my first choice would be Saturday, the 26th, but I could also do Friday or Sunday.

That being
1) Easter weekend (I thought we had decided that that wouldn't work or was that just Ohio people - that might be a big family day for people)
and
2) my weekend to work there is no way I can make it Sat or Sun.
**If I could make it at all I could make it Friday** - I thought Anna already said she had to work that day?

I will vote but I am sure I won't be able to go....

I looked in the other thread and I didn't see where she said anything except she couldn't do it on Easter....but I could have missed it.

Staci I was really hoping you would be able to make it. :( Do you think Friday the 25 is possible for you?

Would friday the 25th work for anyone else?

(thanks Amy!!!)

Well, it doesn't look too good for me. :( :( :(

I can't take any time off work, and I couldn't even leave after work because I am 3 1/2 hours away from the park.
Saturday would work... but as some of you may know, my hubby is working is Las Vegas, and that being Easter weekend, he is flying home for the weekend. :( :(

The only thing that could work out would be if my hubby can not find a cheap ticket home for Easter weekend, then I could join you at the park on Saturday. I could not do Sunday, it's Easter, and I spend time with my family for the Holiday.

(unless I am really really bad and call in "sick" to work one day :eek: :p :D )

I'll keep an eye on this thread so I know when you all are getting together!!

I am off work that day, but Ralph is not. The dogs I could make it, but he probablly couldn't. That is why I said Saturday would be better, but Friday is definatley do-able

I'm so excited!!! We'll finally get to meet Nebo and Kiara & everyone!
Any day is good for us, since we live here. I don't have my March schedule for work at the mall yet, but I'll swap days off if I have to! Friday's good, Sat.'s good, even Easter is good for us, but I know there may be alot of people doing family stuff then. Love the idea about the egg-hunt, we'll just have to watch to make sure the dogs don't eat the plastic eggs too!!!;)
Let me know if there is anything I can help with, ok?

shais_mom
02-21-2005, 12:03 AM
I think Friday is doable for me but I am a minority I see so I understand will miss ya Amy but hopefully will catch ya in Cali! ;)-
I meant I thought Anna had to work Easter sorry didn't clarify my oopsie! ;)

02-21-2005, 09:00 AM
I'm not going to vote:p I think as long as I know soon enough ahead (like here soon;)) I'll be able to get whatever day off. And I'm also taking a couple days off while you all are here so whatever day would be doable for me:)

02-21-2005, 09:25 AM
Saturday would work best for me.

My family doesn't really get together for Easter anymore. No big family plans on my side... however, I know the religious holidays are big on Andy's side, so it'll probably be just Kia and I coming down for the day if we can make it. :)

Maybe Donna would like to come along for the ride.... :)

The only thing, since Amy and I will be traveling from a LONG distance away - we will not be able to supply all of the food, drinks, and so on. As well as reserve the pavillion. Would anyone like to help us with that? :)

I don't have a problem reserving the shelter...and it is looking like Saturday? Should I go ahead with that.

I'm sure all us Ohioians can come up with food. If all else fails, we will order some pizzas :)

Kfamr
02-21-2005, 10:59 PM
I think Saturday is a go - I wish there was a date that could work for *everyone*


If everyone who's going to attend is interested in the "Easter Egg Hunt" - I could buy and bring the supplies/prize/ect for that. :)

Of course we'll help with the food and drinks!
And I think the easter egg hunt sound like fun:D

The 26th would be great for us - but almost any day would be. I too can help with food - or anything else. As far as reserving the shelter - I highly doubt if anyone will be using it that day.

cyber-sibes
02-22-2005, 12:43 PM
Chances are no one will be using it, but if it's reserved, the park dist. does come through and cleans it up, puts out new trash bags, makes sure everything's ready to go. I'll take a good look at it my next trip out and see how it's faired over the winter. Last year they did some maintenance on that particular shelterhouse. (and boy,was I glad, 'cause that day I locked my keys in the car, and the maintenance guy helped me get the car unlocked!)

Amy told me about this.

I may most likely will go.. It'll depend if my friend will go with me or not. :) I'm not sure if I can bring both girls, but Rosie is the one that's most likely to get along with the gang.. Anna is more aggressive.

ramanth

YAY! :D

Kfamr
02-24-2005, 11:16 PM
I very much so appreciate everyone willing to help. :)
BIG Thank yous to you.

Now - We need to decided what we want to eat. Do we want the usual hot dogs/burgers, or to order pizza? Doesn't matter to me, either is fine.

I can bring all of the stuff for the Egg Hunt, but if anyone wants to bring an additional prize or what not for the winner - feel free!
I'll have my dad hide the eggs so everyone can participate. ;)


Now - Saturday March 26th is the final date - WHO will be attending..

I'm glad Mark will be attending. :) I'm getting so excited. :D

Just a reminder to those who are new to the dog park -

YOU MUST REGISTER ALL DOGS WHO WILL BE ATTENDING

To register - click this and print it out

http://www.hancockparks.com/dogpark-app.pdf

You have to have Adobe Reader to open it.
If you can't open it, let me know. I'll try my hardest to get it in some other format.

Findlay's zipcode is 45840 - they didn't have that on the permit.

Please read it completely as it requires some vet info & $10 to get a permit.


Thanks Amy (cincy'smom) for the info. :D

Here's a *link* to one of last yera's posts >>>
"Findlay + Permit" search HIT (http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/showthread.php?s=&postid=808083&highlight=Findlay+permit#post808083)



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 March 1 of 2004 -
he's Good to Go!

And a 3 year Rabies shot is good if it was given
AFTER MARCH 1, 2002.

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

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

Thanks Phred. ;)

Since we'll be there March 24-28 (I think?) we could do another mini meeting of sorts maybe at a different place for those who can't go on the 26. Just a thought...

I just saw this (sorry I have been so neglectful of my PT friends lately). I am on vacation that week - so minimally Leo and I will be there. If I can borrow my sister's car (mine is too small) - I will bring Barney as well. I will probably not spend the night - but I can drive out that morning and drive back that night like I did last time.

Audrey I think you should go to this one ;)

Yeah we should probably figure out the food thing...it's coming up faster than you think.

As much as I would like to cook something to bring that's not really possible with the traveling so I think I'll buy something when we get in Ohio.

How 'bout if I bring some sides- stuff like potatoe salad or macaroni salad? (since I live so close, it won't have to travel far.)
Any preferences?

clara4457
03-08-2005, 08:14 PM
I could bring chips or pop or something that travels well :D

Barney is getting his shots Friday, so I will be sending in my paperwork for the permit as soon as I have his proof of vacs. His previous owner failed to send us shot records, so we have to revaccinate him. :(

As it looks now, I should be able to bring both Leo and Barney - my sister is letting me borrow her Element. Two big dogs in a small Geo Prism doesn't quite work. :D

Phred - any chance you can email me directions again? I can't find the ones you sent me last time. My email is [email protected]

Looking forward to it.

I can't really say if I can make it or not. I have to work until 330 that day so I wouldn't be able to get there much before 430. On a holiday weekend I can't/won't ask my weekend partner to come in early. And Phred, I can't/won't call in sick either!! :p
I will try my best to get there but with the daylight saving's time not changing yet, I am not sure how much daylight will be there. And I don't want anyone staying until I get there and traveling in the dark. We may have to settle for me calling a cell phone and passing it around like they did in Cali last year!!

03-09-2005, 12:44 AM
Hey 4:30 isn't that late! I would love to see you again Staci! I'd like to stay there for quite a while if those I'm going with are ok with it. What time do the meetings usually start...I can't remember. Maybe we could start it a bit later.

Ok. I'm going to look into a flight. Unfortunately, if I fly I can't bring any of the kids. :(

Amy & Kay, where are y'all staying? If I can pull this off, where's the closest airport to where y'all are staying, or the park?

*scared* I've never traveled alone. What a whimp! LOL!

Staci - if I fly all the way up there, you'd better show!! :D :p

What airport is closest to you, Micki? Dallas? Isn't there 2 in Dallas? Dallas, TX - Love Field (DAL)
Dallas, TX - Dallas/Ft Worth Intl. (DFW)

I think we're staying at Anna's house which is in Piqua Ohio. From what I can figure (and I don't know Ohio so you Ohio people can give some imput) it looks like Dayton would be the closest to her house...then Columbus? I think Toledo may be closer to the park but I don't see an airport there...*edit* NM I see one now I was blind before I guess lol. I'm sure there's an airport in Cleveland too but that's not real close to either location.

Hey your dogs are small enough one could ride under your seat on the plane. ;) It's $75 each way though unfortunatly.

03-09-2005, 11:24 PM
Ok, what I would need would be a hotel close to the park and an airport close to the hotel, lol. I don't want to pay a fortune in cab fare. Can any locals tell me where the park is and where an airport is located in relation to it?

Yep, we have Love Field and DFW International.

Amy, can you imagine a being on a plane with a terrier under your set? OMG, no way!! :D

Dayton Dayton International Airport DAY

I think Toledo is the closest to the park which is in Findlay, OH. According to yahoo maps it's about an hour away.

So, I could fly into Dayton and take a cab to Piqua. I found a LaQuinta that I could stay at there and then if I can hitch a ride to and from the meeting, I'd be set. A cab back to the airport on Sunday, and it CAN be done! :D

My only problem is the flight. The only ones I've found leave early Friday, and that could be a problem with for my boss. :( I doubt I could leave early, since we'll be crazy busy by then. :(

Anna - can you tell me what hotels aren't creepy in Piqua? Is the LaQuinta ok?

And of course if you come, Pippi will have to be a definate for the park, so you have that small terrier with the big dog attitude to make you feel at home!

Sounds like things may work out for flying into Dayton, but if you can find cheaper flights, to Toledo or Detroit, we can help you out in the north!!

If anyone does decide to fly into Toledo, I'll be glad to be a chauffer - it is 1 hour to Findlay from Toledo. There actually is a smll airport in Findlay, too, but I don't know much about it. If anyone wants to stay in Findlay, I can recommend a couple places we used when we were interviewing there.

The only flights I can find into Dayton arrive after midnight. Everything else is earlier in the day. That flight leaves here at 8:57.

Kay, that one's so far away that I wouldn't get into Piqua until VERY late, and I probably coudn't afford the cab fare. :(

I found a flight on AA that gets in at 12:05 am. I'm a scardy cat, but I guess I could think about taking a cab to the Piqua LaQuinta. I'm just such a chicken. I'm always afraid I'll end up getting kidnapped and killed. *paranoid*

Okay, I have a flight on hold and I'm getting ready to pay for it! I'm even going to have a short layover in St Louis (I'm getting adventurous, lol). I depart DFW @ 1 pm (hopefully my boss won't freak out when I tell her!) and will arrive in Dayton at 5:30. I don't want anyone driving an hour and a half to pick me up! :o Kay, you're so sweet to offer, but I can't ask your Dad to drive that far and back to get me. I'll just get some pepper spray and take a cab to the LaQuinta in Piqua. I'm nearly 40 years old after all. But - I'll still take a lift to the park! :)

I'll leave a 10:30 the next morning which will put me back in Dallas at 12:17. :D

I'll need to get a cell phone number or Anna's phone number so I can call ya'll when I get there, and maybe we can go eat or something, unless y'all already have something planned.

Off to book my room! :D :D :D

I can't tell you all how excited I am. My boss and co workers can't belive I'm flying to Ohio to have a cookout with "strangers". :rolleyes: I kept trying to tell them y'all are my family that I just haven't met face to face yet.

There are two grills for cooking right in front of the shelter. Out-house style bathrooms just a short walk away. Pop machines & phone over by the ranger house, and a paved trail that goes thru the park, too. Last week two people came past the dogpark leading llamas:eek: with paks and two dogs! We see horseback riders too.
It would almost be better if it does stay frozen, but when it thaws, there is a lot of mud inside the entrance. It's not too bad once you get past the time-out cage into the field, but I strongly suggest wearing old clothes & boots - and bring a couple old towels for those muddy paws before you load 'em up!

Just a small reminder to everyone -- Kiara is generally VERY scared of new people. She's never acted aggressive towards anyone or anything, but she does bark A LOT at new people and new things. We're working with her, and she did fine last time, so hopefully she will this time as well!

Nebo is a chicken with people as well...he's usually afraid of strangers though sometimes he's fine offleash like in a dog park. He will take treat bribes too. ;) He is especially afraid of men for no particular reason. So just don't feel bad if Nebo won't come to you...it's just Nebo, he's a snob. And if you try to hug him or something and he growls, don't worry about that either...that's just Nebo... :rolleyes: He is an affectionate dog but it's all on his own terms lol.

Since we're on dog quirks....
This is the first time most of you will meet Sherman. Please keep in mind he has juvenile cataracts and can't see anything in front of his face, so he will duck and back off if you reach overhand towards him. If you hold your hand low, palm up, he will approach you. He also growls at other dogs alot if they are near his head - he's not aggressive, just hates having anyone in his face. (he is also easily bribed with treats).

I'm really excited! I can't believe so many people are coming from so far away!!!

Ohhh and I just wanted to make sure you all know this before hand if you didn't know it before.
Bon is not neutured yet and unless he becomes agressive won't be till around 2.

Ok, this is up in the air again.. my mom does not want me to take Anna & Rosie now..

My mom won't let me take them to the vet/she won't take them to the vet, and I have been arguing with her trying to get the dogs their Rabies shot that they are overdue for. Ugh. I don't know what's gonna happen now. She doesn't want me to take the girls along with me in a car that's a 2 1/2 hrs drive..

I'll try everything my best to get that done. I know it is NEXT Saturday, and I still need to send in my $10 along with the form & proof of their rabies/distemper shots.. :o

I don't really understand why she doesn't want you to take them in the car? You'll have your friend to help you and when you get to the park there will be all of us. The park is fenced and everything, they will be fine. I hope you are able to bring them!

I think I will be bringing Barney. He is already feeling a lot better. The pain pills seem to be helping a great deal. I sent my paperwork for both permits this morning. I had to wait to send them until I got Barney's records.

Ok we can get hot dog and burger buns. We'll probably also bring some sort of dessert (cookies?). I was think it would probably make more sense for somebody who lives there to get ketchup/mustard as if it's not all used (which most likely it won't be) they can just take it home.

Hmmm... If I can get a lift to Walmart or a grocery store, I can bring napkins, cups, & plates. I can't think of anything else to bring that we would need.

I'm SO excited!!! :D :D :D I have so much stuff to do this before Friday!

Amy, I'm scared to fly, too. I've never flown alone. :o Are you driving back to FL with Kay & her Dad, or will you be flying home from OH?

We could go shopping or something the night before so we can pick up what we need to get as well. :)

Sorry to answer for her, but Amy will be driving back to FL with us and staying until April 6th. :)

I've only flown once, with my mom, and it was to Boise, ID lol...short flight from SLC, UT. And that was many years ago. I hope we both will have good flight experiences!

And yeah I'm flying back from Florida so I'm driving back with Kay. I'm soooooooooooo nervous right now I'm going crazy. :o

Hi guys. Nebo and I are both fine. I think the flight stressed me out more than him...I about had a panic attack when I had to leave him. :o He seemed fine when they brought him out, he was just laying down quietly. No messes or anything and his PB filled kong was cleaned out so I think he kept himself busy. I think he was the only dog on the flight because when we asked the guy if he was going to get the pets he was like "The husky?"

He's enjoying himself here, espcially with his girlfiend ;) Kiara.

yesterday on my way to Pennsylvania for a meeting.

As I was driving down I-79, my car went clunkity - clunkity - clunk. As I pulled over with white smoke billowing out from under my hood and saw the trail of oil the last 30 feet my car traveled, I knew I was in trouble. After a tow to the nearest town of Meadville - it was determined that my car was beyond hope and a decision was made to put it out of it's misery and send it to the Battery Bridge. A rod blew and put a hole in my engine and made it impossible for me to justify keeping it in pain any longer. My 96 Geo Prism is now at the bridge waiting for me - free of pain and running like the new car it once was.

Well - being a lover of all things bright and mechanical, I adopted a new shiny Kia Sportage to add to my family. Although I will miss my little Prism, I knew there was just too much space in my driveway to not fill it with a new family member.

I will be picking up my new sporty tonight, so I will still be attending the get together this weekend. Since my new family member will be larger and younger, I will no longer have any excuses not to attend more Pettalk family get togethers.

There is not really a point to my diatribe, just wanted to let everyone know that I will be arriving around 12-1 in a metallic green Kia Sportage with 2 large black dogs in tow.

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

Although it's the same exact as our older one, it's brand new!

Our warrenty was almost up and or other had a dent in the side from some idiot. Good thing about getting white trucks.. the dealerships have no problem trading them back in, all of the construction workers and such are looking for used white trucks so they have no problem getting rid of them.



Anyways, We plan and hope on heading north at 2:00pm today.

I'm very, very upset about it because I'll not be there. I was excited about seeing everyone!! It is not my fault. I just feel real bad about it all. I'm sorry. Hope I don't get blasted for this.

Hey guys. I've taken quite a few pictures already. No snow, but i'm loving this cool weather. Nice and sunny, but very cool here.


Bon is SO cute. I love that big boy. Kiara is a bit scared of him, and he and Nebo try to show eachother who's boss.. but nothing that needs more than a quick "knock it off"

Of course Roxey and Huney are as adorable as always. That Huney girl sure has come around. Last time she barely came up to everyone, this time she walks right up when you call her and she even let me hold her. :D


My dad won't be with us on Saturday - He left to go to his Sister's in Ann Arbor, MI. We all figured he'd have a lot more fun up there and it wouldn't be too exciting for him to stay here with a bunch of girls and their dogs.


Anyways, i'll stop blabbing now.. we're heading off to the store soon.

I just thought to look over here in case someone was home. Thanks for the pictures :) Looks like a real good time. So was it cold? Some people look bundled up and some don't. How many dogs made it there? More pictures :)

Great pics.. now where's everyone else's.. NO excuses - even I have my pictures loaded here at Anna's! :p

Surprisingly, i've only taken 321 so far.

Here's a few of my favorites (not going to post all until I get more time at home. ;) )


Here's Leo chasing Kiki.. I swear Leo is just in love with my lil girl. ;)

We just got home!! We didn't leave until about 7:30 and then stopped to see the sand scupltures, and then stopped to put air in the tire (thanks for checking it Mark!). The dogs are all crashed, so I'll start uploading some pictures...

And I made it home!!!

Keegan is POOPED as is Mommy. I just wanted to let everyone know I arrived home safely and am glad to see that Anna's PupCrew made it too.
Sorry I missed the hunt. Looks like fun! :)
Thanks again, Kay for the double bag of goodies and the sugar cookies. They are very yummy! :)
My pics will have to wait until tomorrow as my eyes are burning right now!!

You're very welcome Staci, i'm glad you got to come by for a while and was hoping there would be some cookies left for you to grab. :)

Here's one I got of Keeg.. It was hard since she was so excited to see everyone! :p She seems like she's a lot more social now.. it seems a lot of PT dogs are coming out of their shells!

Tori and I are home!

We had a great time. Always fun getting together with Pet Talkers. All the pictures are great and I love looking at them. I haven't got mine on my computer yet and I'm not for sure if I'll get to it tonite. Tori slept like a baby all the way home. I even stopped at a rest area on the way home and when I got out she only raised her head for a sec and quickly went back to sleep. I think the past two days have finally wore her out...lol.

Special thanks to Kay and Amy for putting on the Easter Egg Hunt. That was a great idea and it was lots of fun!

Robin :)

P.S. Mark....their is only a tiny bit of your soup left. Alden ate two huge bowlfuls of it. He ate one bowl and came back to fill up again and I asked him if he wanted crackers and he said that you don't need crackers if its good soup. ;) I quickly let him know that Anna and I made it last night when I was there. ;) :p

I'm teasing! I told him you made it. :p

When the sun was out, it was pretty nice..near 50° But when the sun went behind the clouds, and the wond picked up a little, it was chilly. Overall, not bad, but the coat went on and off.

ok sneaking on again at work! :eek:
enjoying the pics!!!
but I think the lack of sleep and the wind/cold by the time I got there have given me the cold/respiratory stuff/sore throat that everyone has is fighting this winter!!! yuck
drinking OJ!!!

sorry we missed you Clara - but I knew you would have to head back before we got there - hopefully later this summer....
