We met this morning at Claireville Conservation Area in Brampton, Ontario. It was a smaller turn out than previous ones, but it was just as much fun and tired out the dogs out just as much!

In attendance was:
Dewy with Noah and honourary GR, Scout (Havanese)
Mad's Mom with Maddie
mm03gn with Bailey
Luci with Lucy
Sabby with Cash

and of course, myself with Molson and my mom showed up near the end with Skoker.

I think we would all agree that it was the perfect venue for this type of meet! We (and by "we", I mean the boys - Dave and Will!) got a fire going in the pit for us to keep warm in the -1 Celcius temperature while the dogs had a blast running around in the HUGE open field.

Here are my pics - Sorry I couldn't narrow them down anymore than this!

Just before we left the house to go to the meet. The lighting was great in our entrance so I had to take a before picture! :)

It looks like a great time was had by all. No snow?
There was a very slight dusting on the ground, but nothing that we, as Canadians, can call real snow ;)

The weather forecast is calling for 25-30 centimeters (just under a foot) of snow between tomorrow and Wednesday though!

Ok...Ike's officially jealous again. We haven't seen significant snowfall in Ike's short, not quite three years, life yet. We did get almost an inch last night.:) It gave him the zoomies!

Alright, I'm up from my amazing nap...here are my pictures!!

On our way to the clearing...Never fear about that water up above, it was mostly frozen :)

Got any treats for me ma??

Fuzzy Golden butts...



Bailey being chased - her favourite activity!









Cash came to join us!

Uuuuggggg...only a small sampling of the crap that got stuck in Baileys tail :doh:

Start of the fire...

As Dave takes my dirty kleenex to burn "it's ok, we're in survival mode" ;)





Beautiful little Lucy!! She was definitely the most popular dog today - both with the people and the other pups!

Such a regal little lady already :)

Molson+Bailey=BFFS4EVA!!

Bailey, you're so funny!!

"what are those crazy big kids doing??"





Maddie deciding she needed a dirt bath!







I think someone has a treat!



Scout doing his best to stay above all of those crazy goldens! ;)



We didn't bring any toys for them, but that doesn't mean they didn't improvise!







At this point in the day, we think one of the other dogs hurt Cash's feelings :( He took a few moments to feel sorry for himself, and then came right back!









This little chocolate lab made Lucy's day! She seemed to be very happy to tumble with someone her own size ;)



Skoker!!!! Even though I was meeting him for the first time, I knew how to get a great picture of him looking at the camera ;)



He looks like trouble to me!!







Please throw my ball mom



ooooh, I wanted to steal her!!!

Steph collecting Molson...

Steph and Molson!! :)









My Beautiful Bailey!!

It appears to have been a wonderful day for pups and people alike, although it does look a bit chilly:)

Thanks for all the compliments about my pretty lil' girl! We had a great time today and it was great to meet everyone finally and put faces to names. Definitely a great spot for this kinda thing!

It would seem that Lucy didn't get the "supposed to be out like a light" memo, she's still going strong! Meanwhile, Will and I are ready to plunk our butts down and relax. Silly puppy!
