Invitation: Playdate on Long Island Opened to All Hav Forum members

Sylvia and I spoke to the manager of Luna's day care in Hicksville, Long Island. He is very enthusiastic of a playdate. Sundays are the only days that he can allow us to have a playdate as the facility is closed which means that we have the run of the place ! Let’s give a good Laurie yaaahhhooo !

This invitation is NOT just open to Long Islanders. I spoke to several forum members at Laurie’s and informed them of our plans. Hicksville is located in the center of the Island in Nassau County and is very accessible off the Long Expressway and Northern State Parkway. For those in NYC the facility is in easy walking distance off the LIRR and is about 45 to 50 minutes from NYC by train. By car about 40 minutes.

The dates that we are looking at are either Sunday January 11th or 25th. We could do the 18th but we figure most people would go away that weekend being that it is a three day weekend.

The manager will charge us $15.00 per “family”. So if you have two dogs and two owners $15.00. One dog and one owner $15.00.

We are hoping to get a good crowd so that we can continue to hold playdates here during the cold/wet months (maybe those Hav hot summers as well) and perhaps we can hold another one in March.

We would love to see our Hav friends and not have to wait until Spring -- or Westminster.

Please give us your idea of your availability.

Because of my business I never know for sure whether I'll be able to attend but I will do my best to be there whichever weekend works for everyone else. The boys need it and would love it and I'm anxious to meet your new baby.

Laurie sends out a big YAHOO!! Although sadly I will not be able to be there, I will be there in spirit!! That is really nice of them to offer the place like that. I would say that $15 is a good rate too!!
I wish I could come and meet the newbie - but I guess I will have to wait till my spring play date.

I took a long break from the computer (another Yahoo) as I was watching and catching Dickson for his for p's and p's. Sylvia and I have been wanting to say that we would love for you Geri and the other LIers to meet Dickson as soon as possible but unfortunatley you would have to come over without your wonderful Havs. Dickson has had his second distemper shot but the vet wants to give him a booster at the end of December and requests that we keep him from other dogs until then. Geri, Michelle, Poornima or Diana if you would like to come over before Dickson's booster or playdate we would love to see you. Weeknights are okay with us.

I would love to go! I think the 11th would a better date for me, but I can't tie myself to it until it gets closer to the date. If people pick the 25th, I can certainly try to make it too!

I will keep it on the radar! Great that you've got a place for the cold winter months.

Thanks, Jon for arranging a playdate. The 11th and 25th seem fine for us. $15 is a great rate.

Look forward to seeing all of you and hope to see many forum pals as well.

Best, Poornima

Is this a one-time-only playdate thing?

I am in the area and would looove to join but I'm not getting my puppy until January! It would be great if this could be maybe once a month, or once every few months!

You might want to go even if you don't have puppy yet. Many other people have gone to the playdates before they got theirs. It's a good way to see how the others interact and to meet some wonderful people.
