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!

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!

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.
