I KNOW you are working on it ....notice I said...ARE...not "were"!

Why, you ask??

Because, what IF....just what IF....POOCH Pen #10 ends up being the dog Otis and Tess pick for you and Gator! What IF we got POOCH Pen#10 to Virginia for THE Pawty.....okay.....haven't gotten any further than that zs far as my "vision" I'm throwing out to the Universe!!!

I know you don't want to put Gator in boarding, but he may not mind if he knows you are bringing him a pal doggy!

Okay....somebody else pick up on the "vision" we are sending to the Universe...Christine might want to know too!!

Gosh! To rhink we could get Christine here, and somehow Gator too....all lit up like a Christmas tree just thinking about this miracle! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Where there's a will, there's a way!!

WAIT!!! Donna, how close do you live to Chicago????????

I think it was about a 5 or 6 hour drive to Chicago when we went ... but in the other direction!Β  lol

When I answered the survey, I was a pretty big "IF," and now we're a "yes."Β  We're planning on leaving here very early Saturday morning to hopefully make it to the park on Saturday.Β  We're going to leave Murphy home, though, since 9 hours in the car will probably be a bit too much for him ... sorry!!!Β  I know you want to meet him, but he is a senior and that's a long time for him.

I think we're going to book a hotel in Mechanicsville, which will put us about 30 minutes away from those staying in the rental houses, and 30 minutes from the park.Β

AND YAAAAAAAAAY AGAIN!!! DONNA, THIS IS SO EXCITING!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

As much as we all want to meet SUPERSTAR ROCKSTAR SUPERHERO MURPHY, we certainly understand why he may prefer to stay home on the sofa!! πŸ™‚

WOW! You really are going to be leaving early!!! You may have more jet lag than our international travelers!! πŸ™‚

Β Feel free to give me a call and I can go over all the details collected so far.

KARMA!!!!! KARMA!!!!! YOU ARE RAZZLE DAZZLE SIZZLING GOOGLE FORM SUPERSTAR EXTRAORDINAIRE!!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

You AND Michelle have come up with a BRILLIANT format!!!

And this sorta' gives people a "choice" of being "closer" to the location where the "house people" are staying (their are two houses actually five miles apart from each other) or being "closer" to Rockwood Park....or halfway inbetween!

Either way, there will be little time in the hotels or houses anyway because THE MAIN EVENT IS TWO....TWO FIVE HOUR DAYS at the park with good food, good friends, the Tribute Leash and a Celebration of Life corner, fenced dog park and lots and lots of barky, howling dogs!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Donna and John (Murphy's Mom & Dad) are basically staying halfway in between.

I'm going to add two addresses here that are very close to Rockwood Park itself but I don't know how to add the stars on the map......don't even know if it's necessary to do that anyway. My tavlet won't let me type in the form.

If you want to be close to the Park, these two hotels are best choice for convenience to major roads and being close to Rockwood Park:

HAMPTON INN. 3620 Price Club Blvd Midlothian Va 1 855 605 0317
(Easily within ten minutes)

TINA, coming all the way from NEW MEXICO to represent the lovely ISA is staying at:

HAMPTON INN 800 Research Rd. Midlothian Va. 1 855 0317
I believe this one is DOG friendly
(Within 10 minutes)

CASSIE (Tripawd Domino) and her roomie coming from SOUTH CAROLINA with their FIVE DOGS. are staying at RED ROOF INN on Walmsley Blvd

Sooooooo.....just to name a few who still might need lodging, Sara (DC Jack), Ingrid (Spirit Nixon, Tex), Kim (all Greys!), Amy (Izzy), Bonnie (Polly), (and more...you know who you are) check out Karma's great form! Tina is open to room share with a couple more people!!

Elizabeth and I never imagined the "Virginia Pawty" would end up being this magical!!!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ PURE MAGIC!!!!! She and are are thrilled beyond words! πŸ™‚

THANKS AGAIN KARMA AND MICHELLE!!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Oh Sally!!!!

The funniest part of this is that before I met Glenn, I dated a guy named John for about 3 years....and more than once my sister called my husband "John."Β  Now she jokingly calls him "JohnGlenn"Β  laughing

Tina ... Teri ... Call me anything but don't call me late for dinner! (or was that a typing thing Sally?)

I filled out the Google thing but I have no idea if it saved my info, nor could I see anyone else's info. Mr. Google is largely a mystery to me. If I messed it up, holler and I'll take another shot at it.

Wowzer, is this turning into the shindig to end all shindigs!

Alison, it sounds like there's plenty of time in the morning for the tattoo parlor! Spend some time on pinterest to figure out what you want! (hehehehe!)

you're forgiven Sally - my own bosses (yes plural) still can't spell my name properly after three years. I've gotten pretty flexible about it.

oh and Christine you HAVE to come!! First choice would of course be WITH Gator but I do understand the complications of bringing him along!! You just have to come!

Oh and the infamous POOCH might just be coming from North Carolina? Am I reading that correctly? As in perhaps a stop on his way to Chicago????

Teri, I could see your info on the form πŸ™‚

Sally, I already scoped out hotel rooms and will go look again. Probably best to get something and cancel, if need be. My sweet girl is hanging tough but tires very easily and has almost no muscle left. The long term prednisone is taking its toll. That said, she still LOVES to make new friends, so we're hoping to attend!
