You will find a wealth of information here at the forum. Last year we had a meet up in DC when the weather was cool and there was a threat of rain. Nonetheless, there were bullies all over and ruled the dog park. One of our members @g8erjackie (by the way...how is the move going?) who was at our meet up and has just recently moved back to Florida to be with her beloved "Gators." They split town with Ruckus, an awesome young man, and Regina who we did not have the pleasure of meeting as she was a recent addition.
Our Jewelie girl is 2.5 years old and Bentley will be turning 2 years old later this month. Jewel loves to meet new friend and Bentley usually just along for the ride. I am located between Baltimore and DC. We will have to pick out a date now that the weather is cooler. @nubonics has a lovely guy Curly who is pretty much laid back. I have not had the pleasure of meeting @Cali Doll and their fur kid(s). I am trying to recall some of the others that attended and will tag them as well.
By all means find the "Welcome and Introductions" Topic on the site and introduce yourself and Rayson to the forum if you have not already done so. By all means post some pics of Rayson as well.
As you peruse the forum, you will find a whole lot of kind support here as we have members all over the world even "down under."
