Play group NoVA, DC, suburban MD

Dawn and I had a play date with Java and Loki on Sunday. The puppies had a blast, and we had fun chatting about puppies. I am putting together a play group list, and Dawn is going to scout some parks to play in if we have more than 4-5 puppies (which she has volunteered her backyard for.) Unfortunately, I live in Old Town with a tiny bricked in patio.

If you are interested in joining us, PM me with your email and mobile number so we can communicate by email and text.

Dumb us didn't take any pictures. We are going to try to get together again this weekend. I will try to remember to take pictures. They won't be anything like yours however.

That would be great. Our training facilities are in Shirlington and there is a small dog park there.

We didn't take any pictures. I was just tickled to death to have another Havanese and his owner playing with Java that I totally forgot to bust out the camera. Hopefully, when we get together this weekend I won't be so out of my mind. Because they were SO CUTE playing together. So many other dogs have such different play styles. These guys are hilarious with the running and then lying down and then play fighting while rolling around on their sides. Then up again to run and chase some more. Ha!

I'm cool with hosting some weekends as long as the numbers don't get out of hand. But if we start wanting to meet regularly or anything like that or we get lots of interest, it might be better to have a neutral place to meet. I have a few things to take care of for myself and sometimes I travel over the weekends. And I would hate to not have a neutral place that doesn't rely on me being home.

Once we figure out a place to meet, I will start a Havanese group on Meetup. Like I said there are already lots of little dog groups meeting, but none that are just Havanese.

Anyway, if anyone is interested in maybe stopping by this Sunday and meeting Barbara and Loki and me and Java, please PM me and I will give you my address and cell phone number. Don't be shy. I promise to have a few refreshments and maybe some yummy human goodies. lol

Dawn - I have to go to California tomorrow. I always get WiFi on the plane so I will look at some of the other breed groups on Meet Up to see where they meet. Barbara

Is there anyone in the forum from Oregon? The Salem or Corvallis area? Willie and I would love to meet more Havanise friends... I do a play group with the breeder and Willie's sibs in McMinnville but something closer would be fun too.

I'm moving back to Corvallis in October, after living in Ohio for 11 years. My Zoey is only half a Hav, but her personality and style of play are definitely Hav. I'd be interested in a meet-up, just won't be able to come quite yet.

Sonny, Loki and Java met up this past Sunday. Here is a picture of the three of them when they had finally run it all out and before they got a second, third and fourth wind. lol Hopefully we can report on some small dog parks and then decide on one for a future meet up because this was awesome.
