1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect. 2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff. 3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned. 4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.
Subject: Luna first Dog park Mon Sep 17, 2012 1:00 pm
So I took Luna to the dog park today. She loved it and she make a few friends with minutes arriving. The big dog you see is a Mix between a malamute and Australian Shepherd. She's only 8 months old and Luna was not afraid:)

How old is Luna again? Only around 11-12 weeks, right? You really should not have her in a dog park until she has had all of her shots, and even then most dog parks have minimum age requirements between 4-6 months. Socialization is great, but there have been HUGE outbreaks of Parvo this year. I would hate to see Luna get sick, and Parvo is extremely dangerous and deadly in young puppies. A friend of mine lost their puppy to it a few weeks ago out in California. In the meantime, get her together with people you know whose dogs are fully vaccinated to minimize her risk.

On the one hand, you become a fierce defender of the ways in which your little one is perfectly ordinary — all the things he or she can do that are just like what everybody else does. And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been." -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Being from the North East as well, I can back that up. When I brought Callie home in June my vet had me keep her on complete lock down until she had her shots because parvo was going around. I only just started taking Callie back out places and she's been done with her shots for about three weeks now. Definitely socialize only with dogs of family and friends for right now as long as you know they are healthy and up to date on shots.

Sorry for the late replied, just recently have time to relax. She's up to date with her shots. The vet was the one who suggested it. I was telling her much damage she was doing to the house. I was giving the go head after I took a few shots that day.
