Hello to Sunny Garden Corgis!
I do not have one of these Corgis, but I met 3 of you that have 6 month old boys at the Wisconsin Corgi Picnic on July 23. Now the Illinois Corgi Group has planned a picnic and I thought it would be great to see how much the boys have grown. Also, this could be an opportunity for more of the Sunny Garden Corgis to have a reunion. Maybe Sandy Johnson will even show up!
Illinois Corgi Picnic
Sunday, September 11, 2011
Noon to 5pm
Friends Forever Dog Park, Freeport, Illinois
Welcome Corgi Lovers!
Everyone is invited to join us for an afternoon of Corgi fun!
We will be meeting Sunday, September 11 at Friends Forever Dog Park in Freeport, Illinois. This 10-acre park includes an agility course, an area just for smaller dogs, and a huge pond. The park is fenced so your dog can run, play, socialize off leash and go for a swim! This park was chosen by Pet Fancy Magazine as one of the top dog parks in the country!

There will be a potluck lunch. Plan to bring something to share with the group. I hope there are some good cooks out there! Otherwise, pick up some potato salad, brownies, or picnic food from your favorite grocery. Also, bring your own drinks and table service (plate, silverware, napkin, etc.). Other items you might want to bring are lawn chairs, coolers, sunscreen, dog towels, etc.. Whatever you do, don’t forget the Corgis!
To enter the dog park each participant must show a current rabies tag and proof of current vaccinations for each dog. DHLP is required. Bordetella is recommended, but not required. There is a $5 fee per dog for a one day pass. Daily passes are available at the information booth or in the shelter office the day of the picnic. No puppies under the age of 4 months are allowed in the dog park. There is a maximum of 2 dogs per adult.
