I've been a corgi lover since I was a kid and finally became an owner of one handsome little boy August of '08. I work at a graphic design studio by day and run an online store called K A Designs, by night.
I canceled the Illinois Corgi Picnic due to the weather.
I wanted to make sure you knew so you did not drive to Freeport on Sunday.
I wrote the statement below and added it to the event's discussion....
Yes, we need to cancel the picnic. :(
The shelter manager wrote me yesterday and again today and stated that it is supposed to rain all weekend and that she just assumed that we would not be having the picnic this weekend. So I wrote and told her that we will cancel.
The weather now says.... Occasional showers and possibly a thunderstorm before 1pm, then a chance of showers. Temperature rising to near 64 by 10am, then falling to around 56 during the remainder of the day. South wind 10 to 15 mph becoming west in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 20 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible.
So it will be windy as well as wet.
I like Stephanie's idea of sending a donation to Friend's Forever Shelter. I was thinking of doing that myself last night. Then the dog food, treats, and the paper towels I have purchased will go to my local shelter next week.
Sorry, guys. Mother nature did not cooperate this year.
Kelly, can I say you've got a great schedule going and I agree with you completely. It's so important to get your dogs on a schedule. Even a weekend schedule, which our dogs have now learned that as well! :)
Also, when were you in NYC? We live about 2.5 hours from NYC and love to go into the city for shows or just to walk around. B4 the dogs, we'd go a lot but with them, it's harder to. We found a great, great kennel about 30 mins from our house that took great lengths to be stress-free for dogs. They love it there.
Anywa, love the picture of Gibby with his NY Yankees cap on. LOL!
