Let's celebrate MLK's birthday at Centennial Lake!

Monday let's celebrate Martin Luther King's birthday walking doggies at Centennial Lake :)  Weather should be 48 degrees and partly cloudy; only a 10% chance of rain and winds at 10 mph.

Please bring NON-RETRACTABLE LEASHES for your dogs, as retractable leashes can amputate paws.  Dogs should be friendly to humans and other dogs.

Please NOTE that this is NOT the main entrance to Lake Centennial Park.  To get to the West Entrance, you must turn ONTO CENTENNIAL LANE from Highway 108, then go about a quarter mile, then take the first RIGHT into the parking lot of the WEST ENTRANCE.  The roads from one entrance to the other do NOT connect inside the park, so you must get to this entrance by Centennial Lane.

Do your best to arrive early, because in colder weather it isn't easy to stand still and wait for late arrivals.  If you can't make it please change your RSVP promptly.  We are going to step off at 2:00 p.m. for real.  We'll turn to the right on the trail so you'll know where to find us if you arrive late.  [In fact if you're really late (by several minutes) you may wish to turn left so you'll run into us and we can walk together at least part of the route.]  Thank you for understanding that we are trying to honor the folks who arrive on time :)  Looking forward to seeing everyone again!

    Thank you Kathy Harold for your photos! I'm sorry I let you out :) I love that picture of Gaby being naughty and jumping up to greet Gail with her collie at hand.

      No problem, you do such a good job of taking pictures of everyone else I just wanted to take some of you and Gaby. That was a good picture of Gaby, it looks like she is kissing Gail.

    Thank you for the photos, Lisa, Wayne, Jeff and Shannon :) I am so glad to get to see what you saw since I missed the great big water break by the tent. I love the shots of all the doggies and the people there. It really was a great day!

    What an awesome way to celebrate a great Leader's birthday! Thank you so much for coming out, everyone, and making it so special :) Thank you Lisa & Guinness, Wayne & Harley, and Jeff & Corky for stepping up to the leadership plate and making it possible to have fun with 27 or so attendees. Thank you, Kathy & Tara, Elizabeth & Kady for helping me look for my "lost" camera & helping me find it in my pants pocket :) Thank you for the lady helping Doug find his carkeys. Come back again soon new doggies & humans, everyone! We love you!

    :-( :-( I just changed my RSVP to a "no" as I woke up with something that feels like a cold or flu coming on. :-( Hate to miss this as I have a bored puppy and this is the last good weather day for awhile, but... HAVE FUN EVERYONE and I hope to see some pictures! :-)

    January 20, 2014

    • Janet A.

      Oh Deb get well soon! We have another collie attending, Kady, whom I was hoping Silver could meet :)

    I have been signed up for a year and have yet to make a meet up. I have the cutest sweetest 2 year young Shi Tzu in the world and he really needs the doggie interaction. I hope to be able to join you all soon.

    Hey everyone. We will have a big group, and the park may be crowded tomorrow
    . To keep all the runners and bikers, people and dogs safe, please call out a warning when you see them. Such as "bike!" or "runner" or just "on your left!" "On your left" refers to the speeding person coming up on your left, so the response is for us to get over to the right. (Actually the bikers are supposed to say it themselves but rarely do.) It's especially important for dogs who tend to jump up toward runners or bikers. Keep calling it down the line so that everyone gets the message. Thank you so much for doing this!

    Hi Janet,
    I would like to join you for the Centennial walk tomorrow, if possible, but I won't know until tomorrow. It seems that you only can add one more person so it's not fair to keep someone else from joining the group.

    • Janet A.

      Rosalie, I increased the number we can have. Two leaders will be there, so feel free to sign up when you can. Thank you for your thoughtfulness.
