Programming and providing support for this service has been a labor
of love since 1997. We are one of the few services online who values our users'
privacy, and have never sold your information. We have even fought hard to defend your
privacy in legal cases; however, we've done it with almost no financial support -- paying out of pocket
to continue providing the service. Due to the issues imposed on us by advertisers, we
also stopped hosting most ads on the forums many years ago. We hope you appreciate our efforts.

Subject: Feb '07 DC/Baltimore/Annapolis Area Dog Events
Most dogs love the snow, so for their sake, let's hope we get some. For those of us without natural fur coats, let's hope we don't, it'll just mess up the few February events.
Any of you who might be interested in a young Newf or even a puppy, check out http://newfierescue.org . Transport to our area can be arranged.
CANCELLED Sun 2/4 10am- 2pm, LAUREL, MD: Fidos For Freedom offers CGC/TDI testing and a tattoo clinic for those looking for an alternative to Superbowl madness http://fidosforfreedom.org/ .
Sat 2/10 2pm- 5pm, ANNAPOLIS, MD: Mid Atlantic Disc Dogs is hosting a working seminar conducted by Nancy Liptak, MS, RVT, CCRP, Certified Canine Rehabilitation Practitioner. This seminar will provide you with valuable information on how to condition your canine athlete prior to performance, how to help prevent injuries from occurring, and how to effectively rehabilitate your pet while recovering from injury. Come on out and join us for some education and fun...and don't forget the pups!!! (Due to limited space, please only bring one pet per participant. No Flexi-Leads allowed.) Please also bring a soft mat or blanket for your canine companion. Held at Truxton Park's Griscom Building 273 Hilltop Lane Annapolis, MD. Although not mentioned on the website http://www.mad-dogs.us/calendar_event.php?eid=20070111170350768 I've been told the fee is a reasonable $15 and the contact is email@example.com .
Sat 2/10 730pm- 11pm, ALEXANDRIA, VA: Join the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria for their Black Tie and Tails fundraising gala http://alexandriaanimals.org/~awla/special_events.cfm . For a mere $125, you can give your dog the opportunity to shed and slobber all over your fanciest finery but, hey- the parking is free.
Sat 2/17 NEWARK, DE: Wilmington Kennel Club http://www.wilmingtonkennelclub.org/eventa.htm is sponsoring a health clinic with bargain priced CERF (eyes), blood chemistries, DNA certification, tattoos, microchips and more.
Mon 2/19, ALEXANDRIA, VA: Really got cabin fever? Then go to the George Washington celebration http://www.washingtonbirthday.net/html/gwparade.html in dog friendly Old Town Alexandria, including a parade at 1pm.
Every Fri 4- 8pm WASHINGTON, DC: Doggie Style Happy Hour http://www.doggiestylebakery.com/funevents/happyhours.htm on the covered patio of Adams Mill Bar & Grill, 18th & Columbia Rd. I'm skeptical as to whether this is still happening but there's no indication on the website.

This franchise has other locations too; in Tyson's Corner VA, Prince William VA, Frederick MD, & Howard County MD but the annoying website http://dogdaycare.com/ made me unwilling to check out all of them.
Every Sat GLEN BURNIE, MD: The Ordnance Rd Petsmart 410-582-9444 has indoor Play Sessions, 130-230 for small dogs & puppies, 330- 430 for everydog else. Call ahead first because times can change. Some of the other Petsmarts have these too.
