Have You Been To Our “New & Improved” Dog Park Lately?

• Canine Club Members Picnic – Did You RSVP?
Club members (and their guests) are invited Saturday April 9th Noon – 2PM to the West Rec Picnic area. To ensure enough food, RSVP required no later than April 2nd to periolinger@yahoo.com. The club is donating Hamburgers & Hot Dogs, and Veggie Burgers, provided by Oakmont Market; and will also provide bottled water. The rest is Pot Luck, provided by members. Feel free to bring wine or other beverages you might like. Pawsarotti’s will again be passing out samples. Raffle prizes, of course! Reminder: This is a Human Only event, no dogs. (OVA rules, not ours).

• What’s Happening at the Dog Park?
Have You Been To Our “New & Improved” Dog Park Lately?
The new path is fabulous. Happy Tails Dog Park now has a new straight and level path running through the park. Gone are the awkward slopes and the path is designed with proper drainage; so if we ever get any rain again, “good bye mud!” The improvements make it much easier to walk and play with your dog. Come check out the Dog Park with your favorite canine. The Park is Open Sunrise to Sunset, for all Oakmont residents to enjoy.

Reserved Time for Small Dogs Now in Effect
Small dog hours, for dogs less than 25 lbs., are now observed weekly 3-4 pm. every Sunday and every Wednesday. It is requested that large breed dog owners observe the 2 hour windows per week, reserved for small dogs. Small dog owners see this as a safety issue so please respect their concerns; especially since the Dog Park is open all other hours of the day, all days of the week for everyone. Happy Tails Dog Park is the only public place in Oakmont where your pup can run leash free.

• Pets Lifeline Needs Your Cool Stuff for “Tailwags and Handbags”
Pets Lifeline is a private 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to protecting and improving the lives of cats and dogs in need in Sonoma Valley, through sheltering, adoption, education and community programs. Their springtime luncheon is April 29th in partnership with Buena Vista Winery. They are now collecting new and gently used designer purses, fine jewelry and scarves for the auction. All auction items will be on display at Buena Vista during the luncheon. The online auction opens two weeks before. Items can be dropped-off Wed/Thur/Sat between 2 and 5pm. They are located at 19686 8th Street East, Sonoma. ***If any Canine Club members have items to donate for the “Tailwags and Handbags “event, please email periolinger@yahoo.com. Peri is trying to coordinate with members so only one trip to Sonoma will be needed.
