Douglas Dogs Has Been Revived

I am happy to announce that there are some additions to the communication system for Douglas Dogs at Fort Barnard Dog Park. If you are receiving this email, you are a member of the Douglas Dogs Yahoo email list. This list is not going away. However, we now have a Facebook group page and an improved website.

You can join the Facebook page at: 

You can also invite other park users to join once you have joined. The group is unmoderated at this time in hopes that we can all be civil and helpful.  It is also a public group where anyone can read the message postings.  All this can change.

The old website has also been revised and improved.  There is feed of the messages from the above Facebook group as well as articles that may be helpful and of interest.  Links to the Yahoo group and Facebook Group are prominent.  And several dog park users will be given log in access to the site to post announcements, photos, and other items of importance and interest.  You can find the website at:

Hope your summer is going well and you and your dog are staying cool while out playing.

Best regards,


Holes in the fence

Please have David walk the fence inside the Fort Barnard dog park to check out the holes in the fence that are reported here.
Please send me pictures.  Sometimes a wire will break and the fence gets pushed for one reason or another and a hole is created.
Thanks for reporting this.  Does the sponsor have their email posted on the kiosk?
** Our goal is to make our places clean, safe and fun. 
The reward is seeing families celebrate, children laugh and memories made.
