    Hey guys!

    I just moved to Arlington, and don't really know too many people here. Figured I'd see if anyone on here is interested in a meetup? Doesn't have to be anything complicated or official (unless we want to do that...then I'm sure we can make it work!)

    Anyways, let me know if you're in the area & would like to hangout!

    Perhaps we should start planning now.

    What about the weekend of August 20th-21st or 27th-28th? That should give people time to clear their schedules...

    As for activities...depending how far people want to go...

    Dogs + Peaches = YUM Dog Days Peach Festival 2011 - Virginia Is For Lovers

    Pups in the park! (September 24th) Group Events | nationals.com: Tickets

    Dogfest 2011 (in Baltimore in October, so not really feasible for this but so fun and worth putting on your calendar that I'm telling you about it now) DogFest 2011: Baltimore Humane Society

    Olde Towne Dogge Walke in September Animal Welfare League of Alexandria: Dogge Walke

    Apparently Fairfax and Arlington are devoid of activities right now.

    The easy thing is just to go on a hike, though it's going to still be nasty humid in August probably :( Anyone have a better idea? Or know any good trails involving water and lots of shade? Or have a giant fenced in property and just want to invite us all over? :D

    I know the 20th is my birthday so I'll be busy that weekend. The 27th or 28th would probably work for me though.

    I'm totally up for any ideas and any of the events above. I don't have a car right now unless Josh comes with, but if he's working I can probably carpool with someone if they're willing to take me along. Provided Cricket isn't in heat (I swear everytime I think she's going into heat she just doesn't) then I'll be bringing her with me. I'll have to leave Bamm at home since being around tons of dogs would be a bit too much for him.

    27th or 28th would also work for me! I'll be in Savannah the weekend of the 20th, so wouldn't be able to do that.

    Sadly I wouldn't be able to do the 27th, because of Bruce's vaccinations. HOWEVER if you guys do September I will absolutely come.

    :) Great idea to do a meet up for our area!

    Okay, just found out about this...I will be here! Saturday, August 27th in Shirlington:

    Don’t Miss Wags ‘N Whiskers on August 27

    If anyone would like to join, we can find a time to meet up. I will probably go to the Shirlington dog park before to try to get Lucy's zoomies out before the event, and then walk around with her in the afternoon. Any interest in joining, anyone?

    What a great idea! I may actually go with my fiancee to look at stuff to buy for Bruce, since we couldn't take him due to vaccines! hehe.

    If you do go, I'd love to meet up and say hello!

    Also, I know there is a few places in the area that do doggie activities around Halloween. It would be something fun for me to do- before the wedding! (Oct. 29th) if you guys are interested I could research!

    Is there anyone who would be willing to carpool to that event? I don't have a car yet and josh will probably be working and have the truck. Sweet? Nolu? Are either of you planning to go?

    If you guys meet on a weekend in September that isn't the 17th, I might travel to NoVa for it.
