My dog would benefit from being in the company of other dogs, and I would benefit from being in the company of metafilter people who have dogs. Let's do a dog-up.
Truman and I like Montrose Dog Beach, but I am definitely open to other suggestions, particularly if those suggestions are for places that don't have a scary half-fence going down one side.

I was thinking the weekend of June 1, but am also open to other suggestions.

I think that this is an excellent idea and Max, the most beautiful corgi in all of the world, agrees.

Shouldn't you cry havoc first?

Anyone know where I can borrow a puppy?

Saturday June 1 could work, Sunday's no good for me, and yeah Montrose Dog beach freaks me out with the lack of complete fencing.

I have no dogs, but I like to play with dogs, and this would be way better than having to explain to strangers that I'm not trying to steal their dogs.

Also, this finally got me to sign up to volunteer at PAWs around the corner from me so I can take their dogs for walks.

I'll come play with all your dogs on June 1. I will do y'all a favor and *not* bring my completely adorable dog, since he has a vicious desire to destroy all other dogs.

So where should we go?

Since it looks Saturday is going to be stormy and awful, let's not do this this weekend. Truman and I will be at the park at Adams and Sangamon on Sunday afternoon as usual (unless it's rainy then, too) if anyone wants to join us!

Apparently to walk dogs, I need 3 hours of training. Only 1 more to go.

I'm picturing that this involves some sort of drill sergeant personality shouting at you while you fumble to pick up a steaming poo.

This amuses me.
