Hey Icyhound, I saw a post a little while back and you said you were from northern VA! Well I am too (Well, moving to Richmond area in a few months) What part are you from?
Well I was wondering if you knew of any good fenced in dog parks and stuff in the area? Its cool to know of another sighthound owner near by! There is another greyhound owner that lives in my subdivision but I haven't seen them yet (My mom saw the lady walking a greyhound)
Right now its WAY too hot to have him outside though. Do you have your afghans outside or are they napping on the couches? Currently Jake is sleeping on my floor as I try to get some cleaning done, haha.
I know this was directed to Icyhound, but when we visit our son in Richmond VA he takes us to a really nice dog park, very large fenced in area, with toys, access to water, agility equipment, etc. It's right next to a city pound. I will ask him when I talk to him, exactly where it is.
I'm in northern VA. I don't know a lot about dog parks in the area, I never visit them. I'm up here nearish Winchester.
There are a ton of dog clubs in hte richmond area thou and lots of shows in VA. it is a very big state.
Its way to hot. The dogs are going outside at night. Once it hits about 5 the sun is down enough tha thte trees shade the back of the house so they can get back out into their yard. They love it up here in the mountains.
My motto for my dogs is quite simple. If I am uncomfortable I assume they are uncomfrotable. I never make them stay out in the heat or the cold, so they are napping in my office/dog room right now with very little interst in going out.
Thanks Hailey for the help :-) I think that's about an 1/2 hr away (possibly) but the way Matt drives...probably not!
Icyhound you are about an hour-ish away from me! (Of course depending on traffic as we all know!)
Jocquelle you are about 3 hrs away! haha! Too bad you aren't closer!
Welcome to Richmond bean...! What part of Richmond do you live in? How do you like it so far? I love it! Currently I'm in Northern VA but I go back and forth to Richmond too for right now (doing job searching/wedding planning/visiting/etc.)
Ok, this is going to sound really weird but has anyone here ever met a fellow TP member in real life?
I had a weird dream that I met one in a pet store. I was there with my dog Jake and I was petting someone's dog and I said how familar it looked. And then the dialogue went from there. I really gotta lighten up on the nightquil!!!!haha! Aparantly when you get 'older" you develop allergies?! ......
I am from Jersey and I have met Scout at a dog show. We are about 45 minutes apart and I was showing about 10 minutes from her home so we made arrangements to meet there. Nice meeting in person sometimes, especially people you come to respect here in the forum.
