Hi,

The Salisbury state reservation is closed until April. So I guess the Feb 26th get together will have to be somewhere else.

Hi,

Fumble is in the sandwich area, and some one on this chain Moni (maybe) is out in central MA where Mohawk is. Try to PM them if they don't show up on this thread.

I'm thinking that unless there is something totally wrong with Shawme- Cromwell Forest we should go there because there are bear warnings for Mohawk (unless they're still hibernating or something)  Shawme also has beach access supposedly though so that may be better....don't know how dog friendly they are though so anyone from CapeCod area been there?

Ok everyone who's interested reply to this so I know how many want to go.  I found a list of campsites that include dayuse I'm not sure if they are all open but I can try to call if everyone says they're interested.  I'm thinking Central Mass would be the best section to find a place so everyone can come.  But if people aren't as interested as before I'll find the centralized area.  Ok here's the site and feel free to make recommendation s but I think our best bet would be to find a camp that offers winter type sports and allow dogs I think all Mass parks allow leashed dogs but I'm not sure.  If anyone else knows of any dog parks that allow off leash let me know and we can try those places.

The dog park that I occasionally go to is the Henry Garsney (sp?) dog park in Mendon, MA. It's small but entirely fenced and offleash... I know some bernese mnt dog owners who take their dogs to one of the state parks regularly to go swimming. I want to say the one in acton, but maybe it is ashland. I will have to remember to ask them next tie we take zoey to their house to play

My sister and I are definatly willing to drive esp to introduce fumble to some other big puppies!!! The poor guy needs to meet some other big dogs because he's bigger than every dog we see!! :)

I narrowed it down to four that might work someone would still need to call and it might be better for a Mass resident to do so.  But let's see there is
Brimfield

Mt Tom

Douglas

Ok so everyone let me know which you like.

let me think here... im thinking either the brimfield or the douglas park because mt. tom probably has a lot of snow this time of year..  i'm not sure either now much snow either of those have... but they might have less than mt. tom! lol!

Hi,

Ok Chaos270, I've planned a few group events and have found giving choices just forces people not to plan !! ::)

So since you are the driver on this pick a park and a date!! Start a new Thread with NE get together on "date" at "park" and take names of who will show up. ;D

It is funny but for some reason when groups are faced with choices no one wants to make the choice for the group. ???

Look at your calendar,pick a date and location and we will come!!  ;)

Hi,

You could pick a place in CT also. If you organise you shouldn't plan to have to drive too far also.

I didn't mean to add more burden to your schedule!! I just wanted to point out that people need to be given a yes or no type answer. Otherwise they won't commit.

I may have found a place in Abington MA .
Its a doggie day care and they have 1/2 acre fenced. I am about to call the owner and see but wanted to throw it out there to you all. I will post again after I talk to him.

Ok so I spoke to the owner John. I am going to meet with him on Friday to check the place out parking ect.
