POSTPONED: May 2013 NYC Boston Terrier Meetup

  • May 19, 2013 · 3:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

UPDATE: Sunday, 5/19/2013  11:40 AM

 

Hey everyone:

 

Unfortunately due to the rainy weather, today's Meetup has been POSTPONED, meaning don't come to Carl Schurz Park today unless you want to be wet, cold, and lonely!!

 

It also means we're looking into whether to re-schedule for next weekend, or cancel entirely for the month...keep an eye on your inbox and we'll let you know shortly.

 

UPDATE #2: Sunday, 5/19/[masked]:55 PM

I've just posted a poll to see if how many of you would be interested in attending a do-over for today's postponed Meetup sometime next weekend....we know many of you already have plans for Memorial Day weekend, but if there's enough positive response, it's back on! Cast your vote here:

 

Should we reschedule the rained-out 5/19/2013 Meetup for Memorial Day Weekend??

 

Since we're less than a week away, please respond ASAP so we can make a decision quickly.

 

Stay tuned....and warm and dry!!

NYC Boston Terrier Meetup Group

 

=====================================

Wow....is this the earliest we've scheduled a Meetup in advance or what?

(Well, possibly not, but compared to the time it took to schedule April's, it's a major improvement!)

Spring has indeed sprung in NYC, and we'll be celebrating in full force outside on the Upper East Side with our BT buddies at Carl Schurz Park, a longtime favorite of many NYCBT Meetup members - and ironically, one that group leader Bubba's Dad has never been to in the 7 years he and Bubba have been with the group!

Once again, since we'll be outdoors, there are no fees or group size restrictions for this one, but we do request you take a moment to RSVP just to let us know who and how many are coming.

Also, please note the Sunday afternoon time for this one, so we'll consider the following Memorial Day weekend for a rain date if needed - as always, keep an eye on this page for breaking news and details, and your inbox in the event of changes in our plans due to inclement weather or other factors.

Looking forward to seeing everyone!

    That's a bummer. All us Upper East Side Boston owners were looking forward to the meetup in our neighborhood. If possible, can we schedule another up here in the near future? We have a great dog run.

      South street seaport also has a dog play ground under the bridge....great on rainy days with the cover

    • Bubba's D.

      Sorcha - will do! Pooh - appreciate the tip, we'll definitely keep it in mind!

    I have a 6 year old Pekenese named Shookie.
    I love Boston Terrier and want to get a playmate.
    Bostons seem happy, funny, active, friendly ... I have a fenced in yard and a stay @ home mom. I have a 8 year old .
    I really think a Boston would be a good fit :)

    What are some of the major medical problems other than breathing ?
    lol my peke has same squooshed in face

    • Cathy

      Lol I forgot to ask what is your facebook site

      May 19, 2013

    • Bubba's D.

      It's awesome that you're considering a rescue! And yes, with a younger child, an older dog may very well be a good choice over a puppy because of all the work and attention that's needed (for both puppy and kid!), so sounds like a good plan. Keep in mind that Bostons can range from as little as 8 to as much as 40+ pounds, and many look lighter than they actually weigh due to their dense muscle and bone structure. Regarding Facebook, we've been proudly Facebook-free since our start in 2006! All of our organizers have agreed it's a gigantic black hole for the little time we have in our normal lives, plus we greatly dislike their constant security lapses, data-mining, and user-privacy policies. We're possibly considering a Google Groups or Twitter presence in the future, so stay tuned....

    My Boston is a seal color, his name is krixus. This is our first meet up.

    • Bubba's D.

      Hey Melissa - A Spartacus fan too? So sorry we had to cancel due to weather today, but you can vote for if we do a reschedule next weekend here: http://www.meetup.com...­ Also, from looking at your profile pix, he's red, not seal. Seal markings are a LOT darker - almost dark brown/black like regular BTs, but has a reddish sheen that's best seen in bright light or sunlight.

      May 19, 2013

    • Melissa S.

      Absolutely a Spartacus fan, in more ways then one; My hubby competes in the actual spartan races. I did cast our vote for next weekend to attend. On the his papers it says he's seal, but he is our first BT, so I am unfamiliar with their colors. He's such a character though, and we look forward to meeting everyone.

    What happens if it rains? Are we still on?

    May 18, 2013

    • Bubba's D.

      Michelle - it's raining, so it's unfortunately off for today...some BTs like sloshing around in water and mud, but most (and their owners) don't! Just posted a poll to gauge interest in a re-do next weekend, so vote here ---> http://www.meetup.com...­

    Not available next weekend!

  • Kate M.

    Oliver is such a brat he will barely leave the comfort of my bed on a rainy day for a walk let a lone to play. He hates getting wet. I've created a monster!! Next time! Have fun! We will be away next weekend. :(

    May 19, 2013

    • Bubba's D.

      He's not as bratty as you think....Bubba and Skittles are exactly the same way!

    • Kate M.

      The raincoat helps for short walks just to get him to even consider to go to the bathroom. One of his many nicknames is "king".

      May 19, 2013

  • Gina S.

    So sorry for not being able to be there tomorrow :(
    Hope we can come to the next Meetup.

    May 18, 2013

    • Bubba's D.

      Gina - help us decide if the next one is a reschedule for next weekend (Memorial Day weekend) or next month by voting in this poll ---> http://www.meetup.com...­

      May 19, 2013

  • GEORGE

    Maybe we should move it to Animal Haven in soho on Centre Street
    I know it's last minute, but they like us

    May 19, 2013

    • Bubba's D.

      Hey George - we thought of that, but unfortunately it's TOO last minute as they rent the room out to other groups too and are usually booked weeks in advance. Vote in our poll if you want to reschedule for Memorial Day weekend or not here ---> http://www.meetup.com...­

      May 19, 2013

  • Cathy B.

    Can our frenchie pup come?

    May 19, 2013

    • Bubba's D.

      Well, we've unfortunately had to postpone for today due to the weather....but you're certainly welcome to join us at future ones - seems most BTs LOVE their Frenchy cousins!! I've just posted a poll to see how many are interested in a reschedule for next weekend here, so vote!

      May 19, 2013

  • Bubba's D.

    Hey again folks - I've just posted a poll to see how many are interested in a reschedule for next weekend...cast your vote now!

    Hey everyone:

    We're unfortunately going to have to postpone today's Meetup due to the rainy weather! HOWEVER....we're looking into other options for next weekend, which is also Memorial Day weekend, so we're debating whether or not to de one since many members will be out of town.

    We'll have more info shortly, just wanted to let you know that we're unfortunately not going to be at Carl Schurz at all today, as most members and their BTs prefer to stay dry!

    Back atcha shortly....
