“Scoop the Poop” Campaign

“Scoop the Poop” Campaign

Most dog owners are responsible and carry bags to clean up after their dogs while on walks or in public spaces. Unfortunately, some are not... The Chelmsford Dog Association is sponsoring a campaign which we are calling "Scoop the Poop".

CDA’s Second Annual Flea Market – Thanks!

Many thanks to everyone that attended or participated in the Flea Market this weekend, and special thanks to Countryside Veterinary Hospital for hosting us.

A Dog’s Eye View: A Plethora of Information for You

I've spent the last two weeks making notes on various things I could write about and it looks something like this: Why don't squirrels get rabies, what is mange, how can I attend the CDA Flea Market at Countryside Vet Hospital this weekend and still grab a burger at the Military Community Covenant Barbeque at Agway happening at the same time. What the devil happened to my keys this time? What's up with the yellow chain gate at Agway? Where did my money go? Isn't there a chocolate cat event on the 18th? Look up moose migration patterns. Pay car insurance.

A note about “minutes”

Just a quick note about the "Meeting Minutes" which are posted to the site here. CDA Meetings are held, usually, once a month. The Secretary takes minutes during the meeting and distributes them to the board for review. An action item for each meeting is for the board to approve the previous month's minutes.

Next CDA Meeting (April 30)

The Next CDA public and board meeting will be held at the Chelmsford Public Library on Monday, April 30 from 7:00 - 9:00. Amongst other agenda items, we will be planning and preparing for the CDA Flea Market (scheduled for May 19) including making signs.

Fisher "Cat"

A Dog’s Eye View: The Mysterious Fisher “Cat”

The fisher (Martes pennanti), is relatively common in many areas despite the fact that it was once eliminated from Massachusetts. Considered by many to be a strictly wilderness species, the fisher is now appearing in more populated areas. Alert, secretive, and solitary, there is no question the fisher has made an amazing comeback in the commonwealth. As with other wildlife species, problems with fishers may sometimes arise.

A Dog’s Eye View: What to Do With All This Stuff

You're looking around your house because you've just vacuumed and that's about as far as this Spring Cleaning Project is gonna get today. Where did all this stuff come from? Who put it here? This is akin to asking: Who are these kids, and why are they calling me "Mom"?

Bear & Cubs

A Dog’s Eye View looks at Bears in the Spring

One of the side effects of modern living is that there are a lot of homes where there used to be woods and scrubby fields. This has led to a steady increase in wildlife sightings in many areas. Deer are seen trying to cross the road more often. Folks in the Westlands have seen moose. Wild turkeys are everywhere, and last Halloween, there was a bear on the loose.
