We finally met! The BPO meet-n-greet in So. Cal!!!
« on: September 24, 2005, 06:13:00 am »
Ok everyone....so I am in the car driving back to my bro-in-law's after an awesome day of playing with fellow BPOers. It was soooo much fun!!! We met at the dog beach at 10:30 played until 12, and then ate a very fun dog restaurant. Bear even had 2 dog meals. :)
As I drive today and tomorrow morning on my way home all that I can think of is how much fun we had. I have never been around a group of people with their big babies as nice,fun, and normal as all of you. So, thanks for the fun: Susan & Erik, Mari, Jessica & Chris, Kirsten & Tom, Barbara, Gina & your husband, and Chris.
Also, a special thanks for my love, Michael, because without you my dreams would never come true.

Even though I wasn't there and I don't know any of you, I am soooo happy that you all met up!  I bet the dogs had a blast!!  I'm jealous as well; poor Roxy hasn't even ever been around any fellow big dogs.  We do run into a puggle, a yorki, and a chihuahua when on are walks sometimes...bu t those three dogs are always being pushed around in a little stroller/baby carriage!!  Roxy is scared of little dogs anyway...I think it's because they always start yapping and barking for no reason.  Oh well... I hope those of you who met up took tons of pictures!  We can't wait to see them!

Well, Chester, Cowboy and I had a blast!  What fun!!!! (oh, wait a minute, I promised Nikkers that we'd have NO fun and wouldn't talk)  Okay, we had a moderate amount of fun.  The only time we cracked a smile is when the dogs were all rolling in the sand.  I had the only Newf that had to be rescued out of the water (but he has an excuse ;)).  It was so nice to meet everybody and their dogs and everyone, as Jaime said, is so normal...given that we all have giant beasts that were sandy, wet and drooly and we all thought they were adorable. ;) 

We really do have to plan another time to include more BPO'ers.  I think we even picked up a few more people who would like to be members who noted what a moderately good time we were having! ;) :D ;D ::)

Honest!!!!  Hardly any fun!!!  there was some discussion of needlepoint patterns, the random pattern of waves, and I think there was something about french-braiding styles.  So really, NO fun........... .............. .............. .........hardl y! :o

Nope.  He, like you, had to work!  We are going up to the cabin next weekend to celebrate his 25th  (I'm going up with the dogs on Wednesday to get food in....wanna come???)

We really had so much fun and I really think we should try to get something on the calendar for maybe after Christmas so everybody can plan far enough ahead to be there!

Cowboy and Chester are soooooooo tired.  They both had to get bathed before they could even walk in to the house.....they had dinner and look like they are both down and out for the night!

Aw Nicks...you make me sad.  :( We all missed you terribly!

Bear and Michael slept soundly the entire way back to Santa Clarita. I just took a shower and am clean. Bear on the other hand will have to wait until we get home tomorrow for a bath because on we are spending the night in a tiny 3rd floor apartment with no hose. Poor baby.  ::)

I can't wait until Barbara posts all of the pictures as well as the other members.

Next time.....I think that anyone in Southern California, Nevada and Arizona need to come! Do you hear me Nicki, Grumpy and Brigid?!  ;D
Hugs,
Jaime
