Default Northern Virginia- Chaz meetup Sunday May 20

FYI- a few of us are planning to meet up at the Shirlington Dog Park on Sunday May 20 at 2pm.

Who wants to come?
I'm bringing Cricket for sure!

Let's make this happen... Come with your dog and heck come even if you don't want to bring a dog.

Yay! Oh I should add... I think this park is only partially fenced in... But its pretty big and I think there's a stream or something for dogs to play in. Caliterp correct me if I'm wrong since I think that's the park you go (used to go) to.

I might see if I can swing it, I'd probably only bring one dog though.

I'll try to make it, though I will not have a dog.

Its mostly fenced in, and the part that isn't is not easy to get out of . . . that said, if you have a dog with a habit of bolting and exploring, its probably not the best place. But they do have to be pretty determined to ignore you.

Hmmm.... I'm not sure if I totally trust Jackson, I guess it depends on how big the space is where he can get out? I mean, he's fine at home and won't run anywhere, and 90% of the time, he'd be fine off leash but he definitely IS an explorer and I just don't wanna lose sight of him, though he usually sticks by. It's hard to say in a new area.

From the pics I saw, there's a creek right? And that's the part that's not totally fenced in? He LOVES the water... so he'd probably stay close.

It's fully fenced--at least, I've never seen any part that isn't fenced. Well, part of the enclosure is the back side of a building, but the fence goes up to the wall.

There are gates that go down to the river below, and the water part isn't fenced, but it's in a huge gully.

I will try to make it! It's going to be packed on a weekend afternoon, but it's big enough that if you walk the length all the way to the end the crowds usually clear out.

Awesome! Okay, that makes me feel better.
