I know we're all coming off of the wave of the Virginia Party, which was a blast!! It got me thinking about planning and hosting a Southern Tripawds Pawty maybe sometime this fall? So I just wanted to put some feelers out and see who all would be interested? There's an amazing park near us called Lake Conestee Nature Park in Greenville, SC. It's a giant nature park with covered shelters, a beautiful dog park and some really fun nature trails, it's one of our favorite places to take the dogs. Greenville, SC is about 2 hours south of Charlotte, NC and about 2 hours north of Atlanta, GA. So let me know if you'd be interested! We could plan just a simple fun get together

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 :)

Cassie! That's such a great idea!! As you saw from the Va pawty, North Carolina and Georgia were well represented, so I would think South Carolina woukd be a great lpcation to draw from those areas!
And the Fall would be a perfect time!

And BTW, your pack was SPECTACULAR on so many levels! Sich a great, breat group of dawgs...And with two wonderful humans! 🙂 🙂

Lots of love to all!

Depending on when and where, I'd be interested in coming.  We just traveled to Greenville, SC to get Will and except for traffic in Charlotte during the day when no one does the speed limit, it was a nice drive.

Izzy and I would love to come, God willing she's still around. If not, you'll all just have to settle for her furry sister 🙂  I can't manage both of them but I've got all my fingers and toes crossed that Izzy can attend another pawty. I am not kidding when I say that it was her BEST DAY EVER!

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 do believe DaBear HQ could be represented as well: at the very least CharlieBear who loves to ride and loves, loves, loves EVERY SINGLE BEING he meets. EmmaRose and Ruby Roo have to check with their social secretaries who keep their schedules sometime nearer the date:)

I love this idea.  I think you would do great as an organizer Cassie.   I sure loved meeting all of you.  I wish you could have stayed for day 2 but I know duty calls :).   If this goes please make sure to take lots & lots of pictures to share as I wouldn't be able to make it more than likely.   Although I totally would love it.
