The costume contest on the 24th was raining and then stopped around 1:15.  3 large dogs showed up and 7 small dogs showed up. The costumes were very cute.  Next year I hope we have good weather.

We have a new volunteer Jackie.  Thanks Jackie for coming aboard to the dog park.

Small dog park...
I was informed that there are black mushrooms around the fence line.  This could be dangerous to your dogs.  One of the members did do her best to get rid of them.  I will check it out today.

I need 3 judges for that day. All dogs in costumes will get a tennis ball to take home and any people in costume will get a bag of peanuts from Texas Road House with a coupon on the back of the bag for a free appetizer. Please let me know if you want to be a judge. Please be at the dog park by 1:00, winners will be picked at 1:30. If you have a little dog to enter the contest and you don't want them in the larger dog park, we will come into the small dog park to check out the costumes. Make sure you bring your cameras. I will ask the Daily News to come out for pictures of the winners, but I am not sure if they would come out on a weekend, I will check it out. So mark your calendar for the 24th and we will see you then. Pray for good weather...You must have a dog park user fee tag to enter the contest.

FYI....I see so many members that don't leash their dogs from the car to the entrance gate and from the exit gate to the cars. PLEASE keep your dogs on a leash until you are inside the gate. I would also recommend that you keep your leash with you when in the dog park because if something happens to your dog you can get the leash on them. Don't leave the leash hanging on the entrance and exit areas.

FYI>>>>>9.08 ANIMALS AND POULTRY NOT TO RUN AT LARGE (Rep. & Recr. Ord. #1769 – 7/15/85). (1) ANIMALS AT LARGE PROHIBITED (Rep. & Recr. Ord. #1867 – 2/1/88). If any animal is at large within the City, the owner of the animal is guilty of a violation and subject to a penalty as provided in sec. 9.30 of this chapter

At Large (Am. Ord. #2024 – 2/4/91). Any animal or fowl is considered to be at large within the meaning of this section if it is off the premises of the owner and not on a leash less than 10' in length and under the control of some person. An animal is not at large if it is in a motor vehicle with the consent of the owner or operator of the vehicle or enclosed in a cage or other container

Just another reminder about keeping yourself and your dogs cool for this coming up weekend.  In the high 80's and 90's.  And NEVER EVER leave your dog in the car when it is hot out.  Or leave a child in the car. 

West Bend Small Dog Park...
The K-9 Friends of West Bend...we are looking for donations to build a gazebo for the small dog park.  There is really no shade for the dog owners to sit under while watching their dogs run and play.  If you can make a donation, please send to :

West Bend Small Dog Park

Thanks to everyone that showed up at the small dog park for the ribbon cutting yesterday. Just a reminder this week is going to be hot outside, bring water for your dogs. Best time to go to the park if you can is around 7 p.m. that is when the sun is going behind the trees up at the larger area dog park and then means less sun on the small dog park
