    We all had such an awesome time, and yes Bella had a lot to talk about didn't she!?!! She, Sam and Katy were totally exhausted the rest of the day. It was nice meeting all of you, hoping to get together soon.

    Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful Doxie Moms (and Dads)!

    To those that did not come to the beach because of worries about the fence ... this is actually a pretty large (long on waterfront) dog beach area and we were planted at about the mid point. The fur-babies did lots of running, but none of them even got close to the ends (fences). They also got lots of exercise and my Gretchen slept pretty hard and well last night.

    Thanks for a wonderful time all!

    I had a great time. Mollie had some much fun swimming. I loved meeting all the doxies and their owners. Let's do this again!!

      Also very last minute but I am going to Honeymoon Island dog beach today between 10 - 11. You are welcome to join us. I will be setup on the beach down the path from the 1st entrance - look for the crazy lady with 3 Doxies.

    I'm sure it was great, unfortunately my calendar messed up and I went on Friday instead. Did see a few doxies, but since I have a long drive from Odessa/Westchase, did not return today. Will definitely make the next one, if I can keep my dates straight!

    Is it off leash and is there a park fee? We've been to honeymoon which was $8 which is why I'm asking :)

      There is "fenced in" but on the far back, the fence is pulled up, even my RIDGEBACK can squeeze under there. in In addition, there fence extends another 7 -10 feet into the water, so if your dog is an escape artist, he will just go into the water and cross the fence from there. My chiweenie is by my side all the time, but my ridgeback is always trying to escape. LOVE the beach there. No fee.

      How big of an opening is it? Maybe we can put something there to block it. I don't like the idea of one of our precious doxies escaping!!!

    Hi Guys , based on what Asmaa just wrote I guess we will not be able to join you at Picnic Island. Our littlest doxie is a real escape artist. Every time we go to a park he walks the fence to see if there is a way out.So I can't risk him slipping out the far back. Hope you guys have a great time. Please try to plan something on this side of the bay from time to time. There are some great parks here

      You can suggest events and Ed will put them up. You can't do it from your phone I think gotta login from a computer. That's how we did the west dog park one a few weeks ago

    Since I've not been to a meetup with my doxie before, do we actually meetup with the group at a time and place, or everyone just does their own thing?

      We all meet up at the time on the meet up - you'll see the people with the doxies pretty quick!! We are a friendly group :)

    Hi, Sandy. We just find each other and chat and watch our kids. See you Saturday!

    This is an off leash fenced in beach park on Tampa Bay. All size dogs are there. There is no fee to get in. Please follow the map above. This park is way down off Gandy Blvd. I was there a few times and found it to be very enjoyable.
