April 2013 NYC Boston Terrier Meetup

Hey everybody:

 

First off, HUGE apologies for the lateness in scheduling this one!

 

We normally like to give at least 2 weeks notice before we do a Meetup, and April's usually the month our group does our first outdoor one of the year. But as you may have noticed, the weather's been a little weird lately - Mother Nature hasn't been able to decide whether to stay cool enough to keep us at Animal Haven for one more month, or warm things up. So, we waited it out to see what would happen....and the verdict is:

 

WE'RE GOING OUTDOORS!!!

 

Jemmy's Dog Run in Madison Square Park's the place to be next Saturday, April 27th, starting at high noon in the shadow of the Flatiron Building, around the corner from Eataly, and just steps away from Shake Shack (which we're sure you're going to share with your beloved BTs, right?)!

 

Since we're outdoors, no fee is charged for this Meetup, and there's no limit to the number of members who can attend - and although RSVPs technically aren't needed, we ask that you please take a moment to do so anyway so everyone can get a rough idea of who's coming and how many members we can expect.

 

Advance weather forecast so far seems to be nice, calling for a partly cloudy to sunny day with a high in the low 60s, but in the event of rain, we'll tentatively shoot for the next day (Sunday, April 28th) at the same time. If it's rainy then too, we'll call the whole thing off and see you next month. Of course, we'll keep everyone in the loop by e-mail if any of this is the case, so keep an eye on your inboxes.

 

Thanks again for your patience, and looking forward to seeing everyone out in the fresh spring air!

    Although I had the heart dropping experience of Imani running...noo wait it was actually BOLTING like a race horse out of the park bc a lady decide to leave both gates open...it was great seeing all the Boston's having fun once we all moved over to the smaller area. Looking forward to the next one already!

      We'll definitely keep it in mind - we're actually going to be up a few blocks at Carl Schurz Park on 86th and East End Ave. on Sunday the 19th next month!

    We went to Madison Square Park today 4/27/13 and was very disappointed. We came from the Bronx. No organization. There was no water. I mean "really" , no water for Bostons. There were too many other breeds and really big dogs, and pit bulls. The area smelled terribly foul. Did not have a good time. Sorry. Left after about 20 minutes

      Lastly, I used to live in both middle and upper Westchester, and probably understand more than any other member the time, trouble, and expense it takes to get in and out of NYC. Even today, I live in Queens, and it takes me pretty much the same amount of time to get to most Meetups as it would if I lived up there - with no car, it’s arguably even MORE difficult to sling a couple of BTs around on the subway. Despite the haul, I do it nearly every month with zero financial incentive because the group has never, ever been about making money, only for the love Bostons, their owners, and the fun of everyone getting together around town. Again, I’m sorry you were disappointed about how today’s meetup turned out, and hope you’ll continue to come to our next ones, hopefully with more objective and realistic expectations, and knowing that we DO in fact put a good bit of thought into planning these.

      (Apologies for the length and multiple entries of the above - Meetup.com only lets us post here 1000 characters at a time, and I felt this required a full explanation/answer - many thanks!)

    We have a couple of other things to do on Saturday, but we're really hoping we can make it. Roxie had such a great time on St. Patrick's Day!

    So excited to bring Stanley to his first meet up! He loves other dogs at the regular dog park...he plays like a crazy dog though :)
