One Year Anniversary (of our group) & Truffle's Bday Celebration Potluck!

Can you believe it?  It's already been one whole year since I started this group, and it's been fabulous so far!  Even though it takes a bit of time, effort, commitment, and money to run this group, it's been totally worthwhile, I love seeing all the happy faces (doggies and humans :).  Thank you guys for making this group so fun to organize!  :)

And Truffle's turning three on August 22nd, so I thought it would be great to have a party to celebrate both, and I think a potluck would be fun, we'll have lots of treats for humans and doggies.

I've finally found a great spot with a large grass field for the doggies to play (far enough away from the street), and picnic tables for us to set up our food.  This is going to be a potluck so do let me know what you'd be bringing!  

Here's what I'm bringing:

- Doggy Birthday Cake

- A Yummy Anniversary Cake for Humans (we can't be left out! ;)

- A Couple of Dishes I'll be making from Scratch

- Water

- Cups, Utensils, Napkins


What would you like to bring? :)

    It was great reconnecting with those we've met before and meeting new people. We had a great time. It was amazing how all the dogs bonded and played well together. Great people, great dogs, and delicious food! I was amazed with the variety of food. Thanks for making this event happen. We look forward to having more fun times with everyone :D

    Hi! I just joined this group, and I've never used meetup.com. How does the waiting list work? I'm always looking for good company to socialize my pup, so it'd be great if we could make it to this.

    August 13, 2013

    • Manggo

      Hi Jessi, welcome to meetup. This is a great way to meet amazing people! Enjoy :D

      August 14, 2013

    • Jessi

      Thanks for the replies! Hope I can make it to the hike if not the potluck, but I'm pretty busy except for Sundays so I might not make it until one of those comes around. Looking forward to it. :)

    I am so sorry not to be there.This is also my birthday and we will be out of town. Happy Birthday to Truffle though. I couldn't ask for a sweeter dog to share a birthday with!!!

    August 5, 2013

  • Sophia

    Great, thank you for the suggestions, I think I'll go with either Pt. Isabel or McLaren park, I'm gonna check out Pt. Isabel sometime this week and decide. :)

    August 5, 2013

  • Manggo

    I've scoped out various off-leash dog parks in the city and I'd recommend Mc Claren Park where there's lots of hiking trails, great views of San Francisco when you get to the hilltop, large grassy fields and a lake where dogs can jump in and play. There's tons of picnic tables in various areas of the park. It's usually not crowded, even on weekends. Stern Grove would be my second recommendation since it's not crowded either and it's rather secluded which makes it more intimate.

    August 4, 2013

  • J

    As always, I highly recommend Pt Isabel in Richmond - lots of benches where we can hang out with food, usually great weather, tons of running around off-leash room for the doggies!

      Do you think we could bring our own food? Or do we have to get food at the cafe, I suppose that would probably be fine too...

      August 3, 2013

    • J

      Totally great to bring our own food - we can eat at picnic tables near the cafe and MudPuppies, not at the cafe itself!

      August 4, 2013

  • Candy

    Oh I'm so sorry we'll miss this. We'll be out of town. Have a great time, and Happy Birthday, Truffle!

  • Barbara & C.

    Cowboy's Birthday is August 26...he'll be three years old too.

    August 2, 2013

  • Megan L.

    Sounds great, Zoe and I are excited :)

    Sophia in Oakland there is a small dog area at Mosswood Dog Run. It's a nice area tucked away in the trees for shade.. just an idea!

    Yay can't wait!! Happy One year...
