Donna, Val, and Cindy,
Looking forward to our meeting this Sunday. We should definately watch the weather. If its too cold we may want to postpone. Kaya hates the cold, but I'm just getting over a respiratory illness so I dont want to over do it. At this point I think Kaya would run around in any weather, she's stir crazy. I KNOW she'll LOVE meeting new friends and seeing Chase.
Sorry I wasnt able to make it today!! I was thinking about the playdate all day, wanting to be there more than anythng.
I saw that Val didnt make it. Perhaps she got lost???? I hope not!! Finding the entrance to the park isnt always that easy. The first time I was there I parked in the back of the WaWa parking lot and walked down the hill.
Anyway, I still plan on being there Sunday morning and will keep an eye on the weather. If its REALLY cold or wet, we may need to reschedule since Kaya hates the cold/wet too!
I wont be able to make any weekday play dates until spring as I am training for a new position at work. My schedule will be way more flexible in the spring. I'm sorry I cant make the play date on the 12th but I could make it on Sunday 1/18 if anyone is interested (unless weather is snowy or wet) I can be flexible with the time, whatever is convenient for everyone else. I'll wait to hear.
The Dog park is part of Lambert Park in West Goshen, PA (a township in West Chester) There are directions to the park online. I can send you the link if you want or you can google it. The other basenji owner that I know is very interested in setting something up in the future. She has a brown and white male named Chase and I have a brindle female named Kaya.
Hello, I havent been on the Basenji chat in awhile. I was excited to see that there are others interested in a Basenji play date in my area. I live in Malvern, PA. I have been meeting with another Basenji owner at a fenced in dog park in West Chester which is convenient to 202 and Rt 100. Perhaps we could plan a play date in the future. Any interest??
Sorry, but I'm not going to be able to make it this Friday. I completely forgot that I have therapy and a doctor's appt this Friday. I think my vacation threw me off schedule. I thought it was next week. My hand therapist reminded me this morning. Maybe we can try another day/time in the future.
I live in Chester County which is about 45 minutes from the city and I'm only familiar with the dog park in West Chester. I would be more than happy to meet at any of the parks you mentioned however, I have no idea which one would be better. I do not have a fenced in yard either and that is why I go to dog parks once in awhile. You do have to be careful as you mentioned. While most dog parks have rules about aggressive dogs, etc, I dont think many follow the rules and it can be dangerous. You also have to worry about them catching an illness as our vet cautioned. Kaya loves to run off leash though so I'm hoping for a place that is fenced in. I will take a look at the places you mentioned and see if I can find one of those books that was recommended. Hopefully it wont rain on Friday. Kaya doesnt like to get her feet wet, is Mick like that too??
