Thanks for telling me about this place. It seems like a good place. Oh!! That dog park I was telling you about is in Westville. My cousin corrected me when I mentioned it to him. I might take Madisyn there this weekend or something. Another person recommended that park too and said there are a bunch of people there w/there dogs on the weekends and there are dogs of all ages there. Maybe we could meet up or something. Just have to find out what the weather is going to be like.

Hey Michelle! I didn't see this thread before.

I know about the dog park in Westville. Its called Bluhm County Park. I've never been there because its more of an agility park and my boy is like...anti-agility! haha! There is also a GREAT dog beach in the Dunes National Lakeshore. Its called Central Beach. Have you heard of it? I go there ALL THE TIME and its where we had our meet and greet last year!

Sorry can't do it this weekend. It's my last weekend of work and I won't have a ride yet, I have to wait until my friend, Savanna's pup, gets her last set of shots so we can bring her with. I can't wait though! The dog park sounds awesome, I've heard of it before too and really everyone was pleased with it.

Well if anyone wants to join me this weekend I think I will take Madisyn after her puppy class Saturday as like a reward for doing well there. We`ll hit the park or the beach after we stop at Pet Supplies PLus in Valpo and grab her a puppy ice cream. Haha

Where are you coming from?

Sorry...just saw your post in the Meet and Greet thread.

you're in Michigan City? Well, here's what you do. Do you know where Brandt's is? By the Lighthouse Mall on 12? Its a pet store. They also sell Frosty Paws by the cup for like, a dollar. I always walk over and get Cabeza one..

Anyway, you pass Brandt's headed west on 12. When 12 splits off right by Mount Baldy, you take Beverly Dr. (It goes to the right, 12 continues on toward the left) Go all the way down to Central Avenue and turn right. The beach is all the way at the end of the road. There's a parking lot and stuff.

Its great!

sure!

Of course...my dog doesn't play. He just kind of wades and lumbers around like a bear. He's sort of curmudgeonly.

Is it safe to let them go into the Lake?NO harmful bacteria or anything? Sorry Im just so weird about Madie. I seriously havent left her alone since I got her when Im not working. I even asked her vet if I could see the kennel area she`ll be in when I have to get her fixed. What can I say....shes my baby. Whenever you want to meet up just let me know.
