Cookie would like to take a moment to remind Merry Myrtle that her puppy license has expired and there will be NO sitting on Cookie this time around.  Not even once.  Don't even think about it.

INGRID!!! Soooo good to hear from you...AND to LAUGH!!!!!

I'll show this to Merry Myrtle and makes sure she understands expiration of her puppy license means on sitting in Cookie!!!

I'm pretty sure she'll be in the computer googling how to get an extension...just a guess!! Stay tuned for her Google search results soon.

And how is our Oh My Nixon doing?

Love to all!

Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

Happy Hannah had a glorious additional bonus time of over one yr & two months after amp for osteo! She made me laugh everyday! Joined April's Angels after send off meal of steak, ice cream, M&Ms & deer poop!

OHHH WYATT RAY DAWG!!!! LMAO!!! You made an incredible chair for Titus!! I think you morphed into the perfect "Lazy Boy Chair" for big dogs! :-) Titus certainly looks comfy!clap

Now, as far as USED to play nice.....I'm sure this day at the park was the turning point from "no more Mr. Nice Guy"! You were being ganged up on and outnumbered very unfairly!!

This pawty is going to be sooooo much fun!!!

Sally you are so funny!

Well folks what we really need now is to get people to show up to the event, so let's all get the word out. I'll have a flyer you can download and put up at local pet boutiques & vet offices soon, stay tuned. Also, if anyone has contacts in TV, radio or newspaper in VA or DC let us know, we can use all the press we can get. Thanks!

IM SO EXCITED! My time off from work for this just got approved! Now time to get planning! Can't wait to pawty! This will be Domino's biggest road trip yet, and Finn's biggest one since when picked him up from his breeder 6 years ago! Can't wait to see everybody!

Im back lol. Two questions.

Do we have a list yet of dog friendly things to do in Fredericksburg? We'll be coming in on Friday and want some fun things to do with the puppers on Saturday morning/afternoon.

Also, I noticed on the registration form on the Greyhounds page that is says mail checks... well call me new school, but I don't use checks lol. Will a money order work? Or can I pay online somewhere? 

Thanks! 

Cassie

 

Oh and I'm assuming dogs are welcome at the Hoppy Hour event on Saturday evening?

I can answer ONE question. Yes, you can bring the check with you! I confirmed that with Rene earlier. I couldn't even fill out the registratiin because it wontw let tavket people type!!

And Imw assuming the happy hour is for dogs too! I don't think anynof us want to leave our dogs alone at the hotel if at all possible!!

Love to all the gang!!

A couple of questions, is the registration form mail in only or is there an email address somewhere I missed that I can scan and send it to? Yes, I'm lazy AND spoiled LOL. I too am bringing cash. 

Also, I know both Cassie and Sally asked also, but just double checking if are we bringing pets to the winery? I'm good either way, but if we are I may only bring Rosco for that. 

I just realized this is 3 weeks away!!!!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!!!

Soooooo excited!!!

Elizabeth, Merry Myrtle is really hoping your daughter is coming, as am I!

Curious...who will be staying overnight in the dog vriendly hotel? And which nights? I'm torn between spending the night or drivi g back and forth each night (about 3- 3 1 2 hr. rou d trip...plus craaaazy Memorial Day traffic, probably longer). Handling Merry Myrtle, taking her out on leash for potty isn't too hard. Although, she's never had to potty on a leash. I think...think..she'll settle down okay in the hotel. Frankie...whoa...sweating bullets just thinking about it! No waaaaay I could handle both on a leash. And if I leave him alone in the hotel long enough to take them out one at a time.....shivering with fear just thinking about the destruction...much less the SHRILL, OFF KEY NON STOP VOCALIZATIONS!!

And on the other side of the coin...car rides with the two of them...no a/c and having to keep the windows jist barely cracked cuz hound nose will try and jump out.

Okay...thanks for listening..I feel better now!winker

Hey Sally! 

We've already reserved our room. We'll be staying Fri, Sat and Sun night. Finn has stayed in hotels before and done great. And hopefully so long as I'm there, Domino will be fine too lol. We're having to drive about 7- 7 1/2 hours, so its our only option lol. When I made the reservation though the hotel was super nice and even offered to move some tables and chairs out of the room to make room for Finn!! 

Elizabeth, I'm still waiting to hear if the winery is ok for the puppers too, cause if not I can't leave them at the hotel alone :/

 

Also, do we have a list of dog friendly things to do in Fredericksburg yet? Trying to find something to occupy our Saturday morning still. 

Can't wait to see everyone there! 

Cassie and Domino
