Virtual Play Date This Sunday 5/24/20

We had our first virtual play date on March 28. Four HF members and four HF dogs were present. I would love for you to join us for a second virtual play date this Sunday, May 24, at either 11 AM central time or 7 PM central time, depending on which time is preferred by more people.

If you think you might be interested, please reply to this thread with your time preference. You can also let me know if Sunday simply won't work for you.

Once we finalize the date and time, you'll be able to PM (private message) me for the link to the Zoom meeting. For now, I'm figuring we'll meet for at least an hour. (We can meet as long as we wish.)

You will enter the meeting with your microphone muted and your video off. Then, after you decide you're happy with your appearance, the appearance of your dog(s), and your background, you can turn on your video. You are welcome to participate even without turning on your video feed, but what fun would that be for the rest of us? We want to see your dog!

Speaking of backgrounds, you can choose a background from a few choices provided by Zoom, or you can upload a background. The photo I uploaded for my background is a picture from our honeymoon/10-year wedding anniversary when we were in Damouchari, Greece, the village where they shot "Dancing Queen" in the movie "Mamma Mia." (See second video at the following link if interested.)

I'll probably end up letting you see into our house, though, depending on how still Shama will sit for the camera (pretty still, as long as I keep the treats coming!) Depending on the weather, we may be able to be outside too ...

You need not be a Zoom member to join Sunday's meeting, but you might want to become a member for free just to have more options and to be able to host your family and friends for all sorts of online meetings.

As a courtesy, please keep your microphones muted unless you want to say something. That will especially be helpful if the dogs start barking. Even I will be keeping my microphone muted unless I'm talking.

Any questions? Post them in this thread.

I hope this works out as it would be so fun to meet more of you in person! (And don't worry at all about your dog's ability to stay on camera. We'd be delighted to catch even a glimpse of your darling!)

We are flexible on any weekend day and time. At this time, Sunday is free, but I hear something is brewing during that day. Ricky will be there until he gets bored and then isn't there. Hope to see Shama, Molly, and Skye again (and their owners).

Either time should work for me.

I pick up Emmy on May 31st, so I won't be able to this weekend - but I LOVE this idea, and will definitely join you next time. Have a great time

Yay! What a great idea for a holiday weekend when normally we would be out but are stuck at home. Thanks for doing this, we will be there! Time is flexible for us so weíll just be there for whatever you work out for everyone else.

We will TRY if you do the 11AM time, but that is 2PM here, and I could be sucked into "family life" at that time on a Sunday. But I would try my best! I can tell you for sure that the 7PM time (10PM here) will not work for us. Kodi and I are already tucked into bed by then! (and the girls follow )

Would like to join you, but not sure about this Sunday. Might be able to join late. Cassie might do a peak, but unlikely to have attention span to stay engaged! Still, it is a fun idea..

Karen,
It should only be an hour difference than EST so 12 pm or 8 pm for us!

Those of you who are busy, it would be so exciting for the rest of us even if you just popped in for 10 minutes!

HoneyBunny, you need not have your puppy yet to join in. (It might actually be easier now than when you have her!)

Karen, do you prefer noon or 8 PM your time?
