Yeah, we can easily go to an outdoor cafe and relax. We can figure something out. Can't wait~

@CM. We will see you and your crew there next year!

Next year! You must bring Millie to meet Bella!

Taem, thank you! I have been to Carmel all of 3 days on our honeymoon, so I have no better idea than anyone else. Though I can do a reconnaisance visit between now and October, I am grateful to you for checking things out for us!

I scanned a portion of a tourist map that I think will be helpful for showing the layout of this area:


Phone for animal clinic is (831) 624-0131
Carmel Mission Inn is (800) 348-9090. As you can see a very convenient location for this event. They can accomodate dogs, just need to let them know in advance.

I would recommend Cafe #2 (in The Barnyard) as the meetup spot. Cafe #1 (in The Crossroads) is nearer the starting point, but only by a minute (literally two blocks apart), and the outdoor seating is right next to vehicle traffic. Cafe #2 opens in back to a courtyard with meandering brick paths and park benches and shrubbery with many stairs and decks, with no vehicle traffic. If folks are planning on spending a half hour or hour here it's much more pleasant for dogs. (Humans too.) The Safeway is just a Safeway with a Starbuck's inside, you'd all be hanging in the parking lot. Tons of parking in both spots.

Barnyard courtyard area:



When you come back from the parade you could grab a pint from Flanagan's Irish Pub and a slice from Allegro pizzeria and eat in the courtyard. Or have fondue over the fire pit at Lugano! This is poodle day after all...

There is a groomer, Suds and Scissors (831-624-4697), right across from Cafe #1 if anyone's poo needs to tart up a bit. Right next to Cafe #2 is Dawg Gone It, a dog goods store, if a leash breaks. You can rent bicycles right next to Cafe #2.

I can scan in street maps of the downtown Carmel area or the Big Sur area from the same tourist map, just let me know.

One last thing I want to mention. There's a thing called Institute for Canine Studies that is opening up here later this year, and they have an office right across from Cafe #1. Not sure what it's about, but they're building a gigantic campus. Maybe it might have relevance for some of you who are in the field and live near by. http://caninestudies.org/index.shtml

that's awesome. I like the idea of meeting after the parade too, just a for a few minutes/half an hour so folks know faces etc. then on the beach we can play, etc.

Oh How I would LOVE to take Bella to the beach. Is it always a dog-friendly beach in Carmel? I was thinking of taking her to Santa Cruz but keeping her on a really long retractable.

yes! the beach is lovely, and quite shallow and safe, especially at low tide, and always dog friendly. that's why the town is so great, they LOVE Dogs. the restaurants have DOG menus!

Weather turned stupidly good so I snapped some pix of Carmel Beach. You access the leash free part here, where I met a woman with a poodle, the first of four women with poodles:


Walk down the steps and you're here:


To the north and south of the rock (to the north is the human portion):



Chatted with a woman who was at the event last year, it was 300 poos. I cannot wait to see that, an army of 300+ poos on the march. That will be outrageous. What will the poos make of it all?

Default Registration open for parade and cocktail party today!

Just a reminder that today, the registration opened up for the parade and cocktail party. Schnauzerpoodle and I will be at the cocktail party at Cypress In with Fozzie, Nickel and our ahem! Human men in tow.

here's the email I got:

Dear Poodle Day Friend(s),
Poodle Day 2011 is just around the corner, and you won't want to miss out on this year's festivities, which include the annual poodle parade, beach play, and cocktail parties at some of Carmel's hottest dining spots the Cypress Inn, Forge in the Forest, and Bistro Beaujolais.

Poodle Day not only offers a fun day for dogs and their human companions but also raises money for NorCal Poodle Rescue, which has been a haven for poodles and poodle mixes since 1986.

The day's festivities will begin with the popular parade led by Poodle Day's official bagpiper, Nancy Murray. Poodles, poodle mixes, and their human companions will march proudly through the dog-friendly Crossroads Shopping Village. Non-poodle family pets are welcome to march with their families, and breeder and affinity groups (e.g., service dog organizations) may march together. (Refer to our terms and conditions for requirements regarding marching as part of a group.)

Directly following the parade, the Red Cross will give a presentation on dog first aid, and NorCal Poodle Rescue will judge parade participants and award prizes for each poodle size category. Awards may include most eye-catching au naturel poodle or poodle mix, best costume or enhanced color, and best poodle pair or trio.

Grab a quick lunch at the Crossroads Shopping Village and head over to let your dogs have some splashy, sandy fun during supervised beach play. There will be designated areas for both large and small dogs. While there are many beach entrances, the closest to Poodle Day's designated beach play is at 13th Avenue. Check out our locations map online to get a better idea of the area as well as available parking.

Parade registration is now open, and all registrants will be entered in a drawing to win an Apple iPad as well as other terrific prizes. (Participants must be present to win.) You also can reserve your spot at one of three cocktail parties: The Cypress Inn, Forge in the Forest, or Bistro Beaujolais.
In the meantime, check out our website for more information on Poodle Day 2011 and read a Poodle Variety article highlighting last year's event and NorCal Poodle Rescue.
We can't wait to see you in October!
Warm regards,
The Poodle Day Team
