    We have the sign used in the parade. Let me know who we should give it to. Also, I still have copies of the picture and article that was in the Shopper-News and will bring them to meetups to distribute.

      Yes! Thank you for a nice morning with my girl. It was cold but at least the snow made it beautiful. :-)

    Hi all.. I have the banner under control..it is small enough for Ziggy and i to manage it if no one else shows up! Thanks. Janet

    March 2, 2013

    • Jade L.

      Since we''re only bringing Toby, one of us can help with the banner.

    I'm going to have to most likely meet you guys apres parade at the square. I got a last minute pet-sitting request for this morning that I could not refuse in good faith!! If I can get finished earlier than expected, will do parade too. Diamond & I will still come decked out.

    Is the meeting point near the dog park? I sort of know where that is? If I could get a general vacinity that would be helpful.

    February 25, 2013

    • Angela L.

      Dawn, the dog park is at the corner of Central and Summit Hill. If you are traveling on Gay going toward Summit Hill, turn right on Summit Hill and go to Central (very close) and it is on the right. The meeting place is right next to the dog park on the downtown side of it.

    February 24, 2013

    • Diana H.

      I would say is look for a Banner that has the groups name on it. We will probably be around the registration tables. when you do register be sure to tell them your in the Best Dog Pack

      February 25, 2013

    • Katrin

    I have to confess that I won't be able to come to MardiGrowl. Just too many other things going on that weekend. Maybe you'll make the news and I can see you on TV.

    We were so looking forward to Mardi Growl again this year, but I unfortunately have surgery scheduled on the 28th and probably won't be up for it. Take lots of pictures for us to see afterwards. Have fun!

      There's a comment section? I went online and filled out the form, but got down to the end and ready to hit the submit button...and no comment area can be found.

      February 19, 2013

    • Jade L.

      From what I remember, the comment area is at the end of the process before the final submit....."comment­ to seller".

      I would like a medium for me and a large for Karen. (unless they shrink -- in that case, I would like a large instead of medium).

    It's should be ok to mention it when you sign in the day of the event..they did not make this clear on the form. Patsy reminded me we did this last year. See Jade's comment of how she did it online.
