Arrow ⚽Finally Found a Playgroup!⚽

Good Evening CP!

Ponyo and I found a small dog meetup group! The website, Meetup.com, is amazing! We're actually now part of a few active groups for our area we're going to try out, but on Thursday we went to Foothills Park to the Boulder Small Dog Meet Up!


Here's a shot of one of the dog park areas. This was the "mixed" or "all" run. Behind it is the "little dogs only" run, and next to that is a "big dogs only" run. I think this will help Ponyo because she's rather shy around strange large dogs now, especially if they're black. Wonderfully, the fences here are all very sturdy and she can see the big dogs ignoring her on the other side!





Whenever we go out, we run through our recalls and tricks! Here's Ponyo showing off in the big world.






Here's a sweet guy named Shadow, who came out while we were doing some tricks & recall. I only thought about this later, but I probably was rude to bring turkey to the park! It helped Ponyo, though, and some owners even said it was OK if I fed their well behaved dogs.






Ponyo settled in! We are so lucky we found a great group of people and dogs. There were 0 issues, and they have no problems with dogs that are still intact.






Everyone taking a water break but Ponyo. I'm sure she'll acclimate soon enough! Our group has meet ups often, even a night/evening group & a day group!






Meetup.com has such a great & extensive website, there's places to rate, post and even put pictures up before & after each event. Ponyo was the new girl so everyone wanted pictures of her... here's one another member took.





Here's a picture I'm proud of. You see how Ponyo lifts her little back leg up to present her crotch to the newcomer? I love that about her! She really does have the makings to be a little social butterfly, but she's become a bit more introverted since she got attacked & we left grooming.





Adorably, she favored the senior dog, Suzie. Probably because her sister, my cocker spaniel, is senior and calm, much like this sweet daucschund, who spent most of her play time in one of her owner's laps napping (they had a more spirited shitzu with them that needed this time more than her.)




It wasn't too long before Ponyo was asking to be put away in her bag. It was hot that day, and she really is so tiny!






Ponyo: "That was fun, let's do it again!"

That website is really awesome! Meetup.com! Our group required us to fill out an short application which required approval from the organizer, so I was very keen that there was regulation and communication in our group! Real important to us! If you haven't found a play group you approve of on this page, it's also a great place to start one!


Thanks for looking! Have a great evening everyone!!!

I'm so happy for you guys!!! I used meetup.com to find the south suburban chihuahua club 6 years ago and I used to go all the time with Gino and then Lola when we got her. I think Mojo even went a few times too! It really is a great place to meet people and social your dog's at the same time. Ponyo looks like she had a blast, I love that she is a social butterfly bc it's not too often I see a chihuahua who is. All the pictures are great, I can definitely tell she had a blast and cannot wait to go again!!

I think it's just one of those random things we find! Lol. I haven't been to a meet up in a few years, I know Leo has never been. It's about 45 min away and usually on the weekends so it's hard to find time, seems like there's always something going on already!

Love love love these pictures of Ponyo enjoying the play group. Looks like she met some really cool pups. I can tell by the pics that each of the dogs seem well behaved and happy. My girlfriend and I try to get together for play dates every here and there and that in itself is a lot of work lol, 6 chi's running around is exhausting but it's never a dull moment! My fave pic is of Ponyo in her bag looking sooooo ready to get hm 😊. I always enjoy your pics and your stories.

So glad you find a play group! I've checked that site for my area and there is nothing! I think there is one in Boston, but it's such a hassle to go into town! Traffic is awful! so much construction everywhere! And parking costs an arm and a leg! Can't really spare any of them! Lol!

It is quite a ways from where we live, too I'm hoping they have more daytime meet ups because traffic around that nice area is terrible come rush hour!

Thank you so much, Meo! She was the most stylish girl there, thanks to all of the style wisdom I learned from you and the other wonder girls here on CP! They loved the SL harness! Lol, I'm glad I just have my 1 little girl to tote! "Six Squeaking Ponyos" is a Christmas carol I don't want to learn! I'm glad you enjoy our pictures

I know exactly what you're talkin' bout, Cindy! Luckily I'm just in school right now so, even though our area can get outrageous with traffic and construction too, going mid morning would really help (maybe I should request one?) Good to hear from you & your

Sorry there's no park like that where you are, Xela! I had no idea this place even existed! It was so magical walking up! They had a community garden and farm with chickens on one side, many imaginative playground facilities... I'm so lucky to live where I live!
