Playdate in Kirkland!

Every Wednesday at 5 is Havanese play time at Barkz, our local doggie store/training facility. It's such fun to meet local Hav owners and their babies! We have a few bichons in the mix, as well and they add to the fun.

This week I got to meet Paula and Rick and their two darling Havs, Max and Bessie! They've been on the forum for quite a while and live near me! I will let Paula tell you about Laura and her Hav, Pepper...who played with Riley! Quite a fun story!

I've posted a video:

Enjoy the craziness!!

Jean, Riley and Zeus!

Wow, a playdate every week! How fun!!! I'm jealous! Do they have separate times for other breeds or is it just for Havanese/Bichon?

Maybe I could ask our local store/training facility if they would be interested in doing this. It's probably good for their business.

Jean Marie you are SO LUCKY! Riley is so cute and cracked me up wiggling all over the place. Reminds me of Pablo as a pup. How funny he is, looks like he's drinking that dog's pee that's lifting its leg

Glad you all liked the video! It's hysterical to see so many Havs in such close quarters! I think it's as much for us to socialize as it is for them to sniff and run.

Here's a link to Barkz so you can see the schedule they have: http://www.barkz.com/barkz_services.html#sched

Just scroll down and you can see the weekly playdates they have for so many breeds and for different sizes and ages of dogs, too! Alexa, be sure to call ahead and set up a meeting with Joey before you head over. They require a meeting for tempermant testing and also a verification of shots, etc faxed over from your vet. If you call ahead, Joey can schedule it the day of the playdate and save you a trip!

Jean, Riley and Zeus!

It was a great time. This was the first play-date for Hav's we've been to and it's all thanks to Jean. Thanks Jean We had the best time, we met some new Hav's and their pets, there were a couple of brother/sister combo's there....one of which was Bessie and Pepper. Pepper is the black and white with all the energy.....Bessie was pretty quiet at this playdate we don't know why, but maybe it was just all the activity, Max was pretty mild as well...and he loves playing with other dogs.

Riley....well let me tell you about that little bundle of energy.....he was in play mode from the minute we got there until the minute we left....he is so cute. They all were.

Pepper, Bessie, Riley and Max all went to a open market after class to wander around (and buy stuff) and there were plenty of other dogs there as well, plus as a bonus...it was a beautiful day.

We'll be back there next week, Thanks for the video Jean, it's great, and it was great meeting you.
