Sheltie Holiday Cookie Party!
Greetings Fellow Shelties (and Humans), For our December meeting we are planning a special private get-together at the organizer's home. We are thinking mulled cider and holiday cookies for the humans -please bring a plate of cookies/snacks to share. We will have a fire cracking in our indoor fireplace (if it's cold enough) and possibly a fire pit going in the backyard too. We have a modest size backyard for the Shelties to chase and play in together and well as a dog-friendly main level of the house for those who want to warm up inside. Ugly sweaters and holiday hats welcome on humans and Shelties alike. =P Please RSVP with the number of dogs and people in your party so we can plan accordingly. We're looking forward to seeing everybody! This gathering will be in Ashburn, VA. (For privacy reasons the address will be e-mailed to attendees a few days before the event.)

    What we're about

    Hello! This is a group for Shelties (aka Shetland Sheepdogs) and their crazy humans. Each month we will investigate a new dog-friendly place around Northern Virginia or a bordering area. We plan to take our humans on MANY adventures: from wineries and breweries, to beautiful hikes, to the best local dog parks and park parks.

    We will start with meetups in the Ashburn and Leesburg VA area (as that is our home base). But we plan to range westward to Purcellville and Bluemont for hikes, farms, and breweries and southward to Virginia wine country such as Delaplane. We may also venture closer to the district because of the beautiful parks and dog-friendly facilities in Alexandria, Arlington, etc. Meetup suggestions welcome!

    New Members: Please introduce yourself and your dogs! Let us know what activities you are most looking forward to and where your home base is. =)

    (Note: We're a bit fair-weather with such big fluffy coats, so excessive rain or heat may reschedule outdoor events. Where possible, the "rain date" will be the other day of the same weekend.)
