Hey all, Just posting to see if anyone is nearby Central PA or the surrounding areas…
I’d love to meet any of you, plus I think I may be participating in organizing a special doglympics event on May 17 with a local area shelter veterinarian to show people that 3 legged, 2 legged or otherwise handicapped dogs can still have a great time and lead full lives!
I’ll have further details on another post (because I need some ideas), just wanted to see if anyone lived nearby

Hi Heather, I did see your earlier post about this and think it is a fabulous idea. You are not all that far from where I live, I think maybe a hour to hour and a half away. I live in northern Maryland, Westminster in Carroll County. While I am not a great idea or organizing type person, I would love to hopefully participate with my Polly in some capacity. So count us in as long as she is still doing okay by May.

Lily and I live in Haddonfield, NJ-right outside Philadelphia-about 2 hours from Lancaster!
Our beautiful Lily was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in her front leg on 12/14/11 at age 8 and had amp on 12/16/11. She completed 5 rounds of carbo. She was so brave and kicked cancer's butt daily! She lived life fully for 4 years, 3 months, and 15 days after her amp. My angel is a warrior princess. I miss her so much.
Great! Mark your calendars for May 17th! Once the final details are in place I’ll keep the forums updated!

We live 2.5 hours away in Jackson, NJ but we would love to go if I can arrange the time away from work. Keep us up to date!
