Bloomingdale LeDroit Dog Park Assn: Join our Dog Days of Summer event - Sunday, 08-14-2011

See this message from the Bloomingdale LeDroit Dog Park Association:

The Bloomingdale LeDroit Dog Park Association (BLDPA) invites you to join us for our ``Dog Days of Summer`` event on Sunday, August 14, 2011. Bring your dog to cool off in our off-leash doggie kiddie pool (11AM-4PM). Having a hard time getting Fido to sit? Talk to the folks at the DC Humane Society`s ``Ask the Trainer`` booth (1PM-3PM). Looking to add to your family? Meet sweet, adoptable dogs at our adoption event (1PM-3PM)!

We will also have treats for the pooches from GreenPaws and Roger, our local pet groomer, will be giving out grooming tips!

If you become a member of the BLDPA on Sunday, you will be entered into a raffle for a free photo session for your pooch or a free grooming (and other great items TBD) and will be able to attend our ``Members-only`` happy hour from 5PM-7PM, where we will have all kinds of snacks and libations.

(What is the BLDPA? The BLDPA is a non-profit neighborhood organization that manages and maintains the Bloomingdale-LeDroit dog park. What kind of things do we do? We lock and unlock the park every day; we pick up poop within the dog park when you forget to; we enforce safety rules; and we work to build a community of dog owners within our neighborhood, among other activities.)

Please email for more information or to volunteer.

Bloomingdale LeDroit Dog Park Association (BLDPA)
Committed to building a sense of community and increasing safety in Bloomingdale & Ledroit Park by establishing and maintaining a dog play area at the Park at LeDroit.

Last minute addition to ``Dog Days of Summer`` event at the dog park:

The DC Dept. of Health (11am-4pm) will be joining us. They will have an ``Ask the Vet`` table, so bring your questions! They will also have information on what to do about a dog bite, how to get a DC dog license (get one from them on Sunday for $15 - with a check ONLY), why scooping poop is SO important, how to prevent rabies and other helpful information.
