OHHHH CASSIE!!!! I saw on on line on this thread and I was just holding my breath hoping you coukd make it! AND YES!!!!! Looks like it will happen!!!!

I'm just so sorry it couldn't have been closer for you! I know you drove so far last time...and now again! Ugh!!

And some of the overnight options I'm checking into are very, very, very reasonable.

My vo to budget foods....Cherrios and bananas or spaghetti and butter (maybe add some ketchup if I splurge)!

You get here....WE'LL MAKE IT WORK!!! It'll be yiur roomie we met last year, and the pups too, right???

11h is nothing, I did a lot worse LOL We travel a lot for trials with our dogs, we are use to it. I just need to check with work and where to put my other dogs LOL I would bring only Novak. We would probably stay at a hotel/motel. Novak is use to hotels as well, no problem with him, no barking. He's a really great travel dog!

Yea Sally, my roomie that came last time would come, Id bring Domino and the new puppy Tonks, and my roomie will bring her two dogs. Finn will most likely stay home 😕 He's been having a lot of anxiety issues and I don't think he'd handle the trip too well. So he'll take a vacation at grandmas house 😁

Domino had his left front leg amputate on May 13th 2014 after being hit by a car. He's now living a happy healthy life on three legs :)

LOVE Short Pump Station! I am admittedly a tad confused about where everything is going to be, but we'll have to make a last minute decision on coming as Izzy will have just had her 8th chemo treatment before the pawty. Depends on how she is doing but we sure hope to come! <3

Momma to the world's most beautiful American Bulldog, Izzy!! Lost her front leg to OSA 9/18/15. Diagnosed w MCT in June 2016. Celebrated her 1 year ampuversary with knee surgery on 9/18/16! MCT recurrence in Dec 2016. Happy & hungry til nearly 14, earning her wings on 7/31/17.

I am still debating. It is 3 and 1/2 hours, so I would probably stay one night if I come. Probably Sat and Sunday, but not sure. 1 or 2 pups, not sure. I was bringing one 2 years ago, until The Chan Man got into the car. He is hard for me to leave anyhow. I can't seem to find the link for the hotel since it looks like the houses are full. It would just be me and the pup or pups. No Lucy, she is bat crazy. She just got over a slipped disc from playing rough with my daughter's dog, so traveling around others probably not so good. Ty' s banner came up twice tonight. I wish he could go🙁

TY GUY, Best Black Lab ever! Diagnosed  and had amp in January, 2014. Kicked MRSA's butt. Earned his angel wings on April 16, 2014. Run Free my boy and don't forget a shoe. Ty is a proud member of the " April Angels". Ty sent us Daryl, a Tripawd rescue in Sept. of 2016. Daryl is 3 +or -. We are also Pawrents to Chandler, a Border Collie mix who is 13, Lucy, a Corgi who is 5, 2 minis, 2 horses, 2 cows and a feisty cat named Zoe. Zoe had a non skeletal Osteosarcoma removed in July 2015. No Chemo, she is at least 15. She is going strong with no sign of reoccurance.

Lori,

I consider that a sign from Ty that you are supposed to be there.  I would love to be able to meet everyone that I can.  It is a memory for sure.  🙂   I understand if its not possible though. 

Here is the link to the hotel https://www.bringfido.com/lodging/97364

I want to come too!

I got dizzy following the lodging banter - even if I have a new furbaby by then, s/he probably won't make the trip so don't need a dog friendly hotel but would like to stay near or with everyone. Or share a room? with or without dog(s).

I know I'm way behind on pulling it together to join this pawrty but it's still such a long time from now!

Both Isa's and Happy Hannah's banners have come up for me this afternoon!

wwwweeeee!

Right rear leg amp 7/12/16 due to OSA. Metastatic lesion on her right front leg, January 2017. Joined the Winter Warriors January 19, 2017. Run free my sweet girl.

SIGNS, SIGNS, EVERYWHERE A SIGN........!! Boy oh boy, our Bridge occupants are working overtime sending us signs that THIS IS MEANT TO BE FOR EVVVVVERYONE!!! And with their support, who knows what kinds of miracles they are manifesting for us ao we can all be rogether! 🙂 🙂

And Teri, don't worry about "being behind"...this is a very fluid and continuing work in progress!!

It may be....maaay be......that the Dog Park location will change from Short Pump to Rockwood Park (Chesterfield County). There will be some additional hotel options in thst area should that be the main meeting area (both dog friendly and non).

And yes, there will be plenty of us to make shared rooms a definite possibility! No worries there!! Miss Lori WILL be coming for a sleep over I just know it!! Very strong possibility that Bonnie (Polly's mom) will be there for a sleepover...ppssiblly Ingrid....weve got Cassie.....possible Novak and Mom.....Amy...Tracy....Jennifer...okay.....gon a stop now...but wevew got many more who will be staying overnight...in additio to those who have rented a hoise I haven't even losted!!! And the list keeps growing!

My motto since this all started is.....you get here....we'll figure out the details!!! And YES, the details WILL become more concrete as we get closer to resolving a few things!

Sooooo exciting!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 My heart starts pitter pattering really fast thinking how WONDERFUL this will be actually connecting with the best friends anyone could ever have!! Talk about Soul mates..WOW!

PS...Teri.....Isa will send you a dog by then! Feel it.....

Oh goodness, is the park location changing? The hotel we found is closer to Rockwood Park because I thought thats where we said? We haven't booked our hotel yet, but it took us forever to find one what-ever I guess let us know ASAP because we plan on booking the hotel in the next 2 weeks or so. Lori, we are looking at staying at the Red Roof Inn in Richmond. I know it's not the best hotel, but we're having to get 2 rooms, so it saves us a ton of money lol.

How far is the new possible location (dog park) from the one we were talking about??? If its close then Cassie can still stay where she was planning.. Without having to search out another place to stay.  I hate to make it inconvenient since she is coming from GA too.

Michelle according to Dr Google they are about 22.4 miles from each other.  Sandra sorry you can't make it this year but always good to boost your job knowledge.  😀  We'll miss you.

Ok we need input from those in that area.  I don't want to make Cassie try to find another place to stay in her budget and with 5 dog since she has to have 2 room I would like to make it easy on them a little bit.  What is everyone elses opinion that is my 2 cents. 

hugs and I am looking forward to this.
