A Dog’s Eye View Says: Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

I’m back! A lot has happened since I blogged last (Blogged? Isn’t that what Huskies do through snow?) Moving right along….

Will Wagner has done a complete re-vamp of our website, www.chelmsforddogassociation.org that is much more interactive. Feel free to visit the new site, and comment on pictures or articles. See the Winners List and photo gallery from Howl’ween, And check out the comments about what could be Chelmsford’s first Dog Park on Roberts Field. A Public Input Session is being held on Tuesday, October 25, at 7PM at the Police Station’s Community Room. Our thanks go to Bill Askenburg for all his help and guidance with this event. Everyone is welcome, even the kids. Our regular meeting will follow.

If all goes well, we hope to have a short video ready for Tuesday to show you the potential park site and what we’d like to see happen there. We’ve received a lot of positive feedback and encouragement to date, and want to make this another great community project. We hope to be able to make a presentation to the Town Manager, the Board of Selectmen, and the Conservation Commission throughout the winter, so if all goes well, we can hit the ground running come Spring of 2012.

On November 12, we’ll have a fundraising table set up at the Senior Center’s Fall Craft Fair. The fair will run from 9AM-2PM, at 75 Groton Rd in North Chelmsford. Several of us will be there to talk to people, take suggestions and answer questions.

On November 13, the Holiday Decorating Committee will be decorating the Town Common in preparation for the Holiday Prelude. Decorating will begin by 7:30AM. I only mention this one because I will be there, and we’d love the help.

Next, on December 3, from 10AM-12 noon, the Animal Control Office will hold their Rabies and Microchipping Clinic at the Chelmsford Dog Pound, 2 Olde North Rd, below the police station. Shots will still be $15.00, microchips will still be $25.00, and 2012 Dog Licenses will be available. This being the fourth year of this event, we expect some return customers for their three year boosters. Please don’t feel like you have to be there right at 10-it’s usually cold out and I’ve only been brave enough to put 15 dogs and cats in the garage at once (6 if they are all big dogs). As long as you are there before 2PM, we’ll stay as long as it takes to get everyone taken care of.  For more information, please call 978-256-0754.

December 4 is the Holiday Prelude-come see the sights, enjoy some light refreshments, ride the horse-drawn wagon and take bets on whether Santa looks suspiciously like the Animal Control Officer. Actually, no knows for sure except his hairdresser…

There will most likely be more events coming, and it is almost November. Time to start stocking up on that Pet-friendly ice melter.
