Would you make a video for me?  I have many video's of Sammy but can't seem to get them onto youtube.  Go figure right?!

 

I can do a Sammy video!  But here's the problem...there is only a couple of ways I can get your video.  1) physically send me a copy from a CD you burn or 2) Use a new/free program called dropbox.com (thanks Shanna!) in which you drop the video file into a folder and share it with me.  Even if you upload the video to youtube, I can't get it.  If you are just talking a video on pics only, no problem since you are using Photobucket.   

 

You are going to have to let go of your heebie jeebie computer fears!  You did good by getting the photos to here so there is nothing stopping you!  It's all actually pretty easy once you are shown in simplistic layman terminology.  We have instructions from admin but maybe some "color by numbers" instructions are in order!  I'll go and post some in the skillshare with pictures.

Hey Everyone we're in Bothell/Kenmore and would like to meet up if you put something together again.  Kess is only a couple of weeks post-op so it will be a bit before we're ready for the dog park.

Whooohooo...I work in Bothell so that should be so easy. We're talking about trying to get together during the holidays sometime, so maybe we can meet Kess. We'll keep you in the loop.

I seem to remember we all posed for a couple of group photos. I have visited some of the attendees blogs and don't see anything like that. Is there a way to post each persons photos in one place for easier viewing?

I had such a good time with everyone and would love to revisit the day through pictures.

Thanks

We announced Jerry's photo gallery update when we posted our photos from the walk. See the "Tripawd Pals" and "Tripawd Parties" galleries. Here's a sampling...

Hey Bellona, you can subscribe and watch the topic and any time someone posts to it you'll get an e-mail.  Kess and I will be at the Auburn Petapalooza May 21 with our frisbee dog club.  We'll be there all day long (10hrs and we'd love to have visitors) as we are providing entertainment.  I was going to suggest it as a fun meet-up for all the south sounders.  In fact here's alist of all the festivals you might bump in to Kess at, she's a busy girl, just look for the woofd2 canopy or frisbee compeittion:

Snohomish Rotary Club Pennies for puppies June 11, this is a benefit for chase away canine cancer, a local NW foundation providing grants for canine cancer research.  It's WOOFD2's charity beneficiary for the year.  I'm not sure what time we'll be performing yet, but Kess of course will come out and strut her stuff.

 

Go Dog Go festival Kirkland, WA 7/23 Juanita Beach 10am-3pm.  I host the canine disc event at this festival so I'll be super busy running around like a crazy making sure everything gets done.  Kess will be competing throughout the day.

 

Pups in the Park festival 8/20 University Place, WA Kess will be competing at the NW Regional Canine Disc Championship 10am-4pm

 

There's usually a few more as we get closer to summer.  It would be great to meet everyone.

Rhonda, I believe we have a mutual friend. Thank you for passing your blog address along and your information too. Everything has happend so fast, but I'd sure love to chat one of these days. Lincoln is such a beautiful dog. He and the other photos from this forum are very inspiring!

Everyone's welcome to stop by and say hi during the Auburn Petapalooza.  We'll be there from 11am until 7pm at the woofd2 frisbee competition and demonstration area.   We'll have the the most time to hang out and chat from 5:30-7pm if people wanted to try to get some folks together.

I have to work that Saturday but I could probably get there by 5:30 pm.  Julian is a horse now (weighs 190#) but he is still very good with other dogs so I could bring him if nobody objects!
