Announcing a new Meetup for The Edmonton Off Leash Dog Recreation Meetup Group!
What: Dawson Off Leash Park
When: October 18, 2009 2:00 PM
South Off Jasper Ave and 95 Street
Edmonton, AB T5A 0A3
Actually all things considered it was a nice day for our walk today. 21 owners and 17 dogs. Thanks to Nicole and her helper Cheryl (from the Naked Dog) for bringing her dog winter gear to fit our dogs with booties etc.
Our next walk will be on Sunday, October 18th @ 2:00 p.m. at Dawson Off Leash Park. This is a multi-use park so there might be cyclists and joggers.
For those who haven't been to Dawson Off Leash Park, it runs along the North Saskatchewan River. Go South on 95th Street off of Jasper Avenue. Get right away into the inside lane and turn left at the first set of lights. Follow the road and turn left at 89th Street (before you get to the bridge). If you've crossed the bridge you've gone too far. Take your 1st right to the parking lot. After parking you'll see me at the left of the parking lot in a grassy area.
This park has a fantastic photo scenic stop to take great pictures of the Edmonton downtown skyline. We will stop there for a few minutes for people who wish to take pictures for xmas cards, or whatever.
If the weather is 15 degrees below or colder, the walk will be canceled, but I'll let you know a day ahead of time if I'm going to cancel.
I must reiterate that we will be leaving at 2:00 p.m. sharp! as the weather is getting colder and we don't want to be standing around too long. If you are going to be late or if you get lost, you can call me on my cell [masked]. I'll have it on for the walk and can let you know what direction we are heading so you can catch up.
See you there. It's a great park for those who haven't been!
Looking forward to seeing you and your pooches on Sunday, October 18th @ 2:00 p.m.
Don't forget about our Halloween Party on October 31st at 11:30 a.m. at the Doggie Style Deli. They will have a Halloween celebration cake for the dogs. There will be a prize for the best dressed dog and the best dressed human. Oh! and the Edmonton Humane Society e-mailed me that they have lot's of dog Halloween costumes and part of the proceeds go to the Humane society (if you are looking for a place to buy an outfit).
If you don't want to dress up your dog or yourself, that's o.k. as I know my dog Sam hates when I put anything foreign on him. We will still have our participant's draw for attendance.
