Well, for all the folks in Calgary......here is our plan!!! On Sunday (Dec. 12) @ 11 am, we are meeting at River Park to walk our dogs (it is an off leash park).
River Park is South on Crowchild, turn east on 50th Ave. then follow that past the High School and Safety City, and the parking lot is at the end of that road.
Heeler's Rock (Pami) and myself (Chris) will be there waiting!!! She has 3 dogs, I have 1 (Brick) - we'll wait close to the parking lot!!!!
EVERYONE is welcome!! Hope to meet some new faces!!! :grouphug:

Sounds like a great day is planned. I wish I lived closer, I would definetly be there
December 9th, 2004, 10:08 AM
Oh my goodness! What a great idea Chris! This is such a terrific way to meet some pets.ca faces!!! YAY!!!! :D
Anyone wanting to come out on Sunday, please post here so we know how many people to wait for. It's gonna be a nice day out so the poochies will have a blast! :D Come on freyja, gazoo, lilpaws, sarahlynn, and all you other Calgarians out there!!! We're gonna have so much FUN!!! :thumbs up :grouphug:

Sounds like it will be a great day! Is there anything I should do/bring/buy for Sunday? Belle has never been off leash before but I would love for her to beable to!
December 9th, 2004, 04:12 PM
Hey Sarah! :) I wouldn't worry about her being off leash. All of the dogs I have taken off leash stick quite close together and form a pack and follow eachother around. I'm sure Belle will be fine. Just bring yourself, Belle, and a leash to take her from the car to the park!! We're gonna have a great time! :)

Jane - would you be able to make it if it was earlier, at like 10??? Or do you want to get together on Sat. instead? Let me know!!
December 14th, 2004, 12:32 AM
I have to admit, it was a lot of fun!! It was great meeting you Jane! I already know you Chris, and you too Sarah!! :D
I have some sad news though:(....we won't be able to make it out this weekend! It's my mother-in-law's b-day on Sunday so we're going to church with them, and they're coming over to my house on Saturday for some lunch so that day is out for me too....I'm really sorry! I forgot and Carlos just reminded me. I hope you all still have a good time, and if I can make it, I'll definitely be there!!!!! :D
December 14th, 2004, 12:58 AM
No worries!!! Let me know who is going to come, so I don't show up by myself!!! LOL Ahhh, Brick will have fun anyways, it's just nice to have people to talk to!!!!!
December 14th, 2004, 11:42 AM
Belle and I can make it this weekend, We are able to change the time or day if Jane is able to join us! See you all again in a few days.
December 15th, 2004, 08:03 AM
Excellent!! I'm still waiting to hear from Jane, but I'm thinking I might need to change the time to 10 am instead. I have to be out in Airdrie for 2:00, and I don't want to rush a good walk!! Does 10 work for you and Belle?? And gazoo, are you going to join us this time? ANyone else in Calgary????? Come on, it was FUN!!!!!
December 15th, 2004, 09:12 AM
10am will be just fine. See you then!
December 15th, 2004, 05:46 PM
Sounds great! Sunday at 10 am at River Park!! Everyone in Calgary is welcome!!!!
December 16th, 2004, 11:28 AM
:grouphug: Hey there everyone!!!
I have had a busy week so far, but thought I would drop a line.
Chris, Lindy is fine, no problems. I have been laughing all week. What a time that was!!! Lindy certainly had fun running about!!! Guess we have more work to do before we can really enjoy the "Off Leash" part of the park.
It was really nice to meet everyone.
I can't make it this weekend unfortunately! It is Cailleigh's birthday on Sunday and the kids are dancing both Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Ps, Cailleigh says Hi!!!
December 18th, 2004, 09:21 AM
Sarah - something has come up for tomorrow, but I'm trying to change it. I will keep you posted on here hopefully by dinnertime tonight ok?? If I can't make it, I'm sooo sorry, and WE WILL reschedule and continue with our "ritual" in the new year!!! I will let ya know!!!! :sorry:
December 18th, 2004, 05:49 PM
Hey Sarah, sorry, but I have to cancel tomorrow's walk (at least me). I really need to be somewhere at 11 and there is no way I can make it for the walk! I'm sooo sorry!!! I hope you get this message before tomorrow!! Take care and we'll be in touch!
December 20th, 2004, 08:50 AM
No Worries, Belle and I went anyway and she had lots of fun as usual and was excellent again! Hopefully see you in the new year
December 20th, 2004, 11:12 AM
Oh I wish I would have met you guys sooner! We live way out in Tuscany but love that dog park! If you ever have one on my side of the city for sure count us in! Sorry I have a dog named Kohl. He is a lovable Doberman!
