Hello doxie moms and dads,
Welcome new members! So glad you found us! If you'd like to pay your dues, you can pay via PayPal, or pay by check (payable to Emily Perryman) the next time I see you at an upcoming meetup event. Welcome and we can't wait to meet you.
Hope your summer has been going well- it has been a busy one! Can you believe it is already back to school? I can't, but in preparation, here are some great fall safety tips for you and your doxie: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/pet-care-tips/autumn-safety-tips.aspx
I'd like to thank everyone who represented the club at the annual Batavia Downs wiener dog races. I hope you all had fun. There were some complaints about the logistics of the event, so make sure to provide your feedback to Batavia Downs so they can better the event for next year!
Our next meetup event will be the annual Clarence Center Labor day parade. The parade gets going at 1:00PM, and as many of you know, the wait can be VERY long, so perhaps bring a lawn chair or something to sit on as you wait, or have someone drop you off as close to 1PM as possible. The traffic on Goodrich Road can be pretty jammed up, so although the wait is long, it can be better to arrive early and park. We will be meeting at our usual spot on Goodrich Road at the (Engineering Department Lawn) 6221 Goodrich Rd., Clarence, NY. It is right next to a pizza place.
Our next meetup after the parade is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15th at member Debbie Zito's house in Niagara Falls. Debbie- please let me know your address so I can post it for members to get directions. Thank you for offering your fenced in yard!!
Next up, our annual "dachtoberfest" event in October. if you'd like to help organize this event, I could use you! Please email me as soon as possible and let me know how you can help. We need a location, judges for our Halloween costume context, raffle prizes and food and drinks! If we cannot find a location I may host the party at the same location as last year, but we'd like to switch it up, so let me know if you have any ideas or would like to volunteer to help!
Thanks and hope you and your doxies and families are doing great, see you all soon!!
