Cool Poodle Day Oct 1 in Carmel--you're invited!

Schnauzerpoodle and I have decided to go to Poodle Day in Carmel, CA this year and we'd like to extend a special invitation to all members of poodle discussion forums to join us-or to let us know if you will be there! (Moderators: can we make this a sticky for awhile?)

More information is here: Poodle Day Events - Poodle and Labradoodle parade and event. There is a parade, off leash play on the beach, and cocktail parties, all dog friendly! Registration for the event opens March 30th and the cocktail parties on April 1. Since hotels and cocktail parties can fill up, we registered early and encourage others to do the same. Our hotel can be cancelled up to 7 days in advance and the PoodleDay events up to September 17th. So no reason NOT to book if you are interested in joining us for the fun!

If you are interested in going let us know here or in private message. It would be fun to get enough people together to go as an affinity group with matching shirts or hats. Even if we don't do that, it'd just be fun to meet people we talk to on the forum at a specific time or place.

For those who don't know about it, Poodle Day is a fund raiser for NorCal (northern California) Poodle Rescue. Carmel is one of the world's most dog friendly cities, with several lovely Bed and Breakfasts who allow dogs, a great off leash dog beach, and all kinds of dog friendly restaurants! October 1 in Carmel is spectacular with warm sunny days and no rain. Carmel's ~3 hours south of San Francisco Airport, or ~2.5 hours south of San Jose International Airport.

We'd love to see you there!

sorry we'll miss you PaddleAddict, we would have loved to meet you, but we can start thinking about 2012 too! And it sounds like an anniversary trip is going to be fun!

I would seriously consider it. It looks like so much fun!
I put out a question about air travel and didn't see any answers.
What do you know about Standards (big dogs) and air travel.
What airlines are best? What is it like to fly your dog in cargo?
I'd love to hear from some pros who may have done it (to show).

Icristi, sorry I have no recent experience flying a dog in cargo. My late schnauzer flew with me from AZ back to Hong Kong (22 hrs, changed plane at Taiwan) 10 years ago and he was in the cargo. He did fine. He didn't mess up the crate. He was all energetic when he saw me at the airport and produced the strongest stream of pee right at the parking lot.

The regulations must have changed quite a bit since then so I guess you might want to wait for other forum members to chime in. I guess those who show their spoos might know better.

Otherwise, it would be great if you could join us at the Poodle Day event.

PoodlePowerPC, and all,

As we get closer we'll get an email list together so we can coordinate. Awesome news!

For those that are interested, I did some research and learned that most of the decent, dog-friendly hotels/B&B in Carmel and Monterey have a 2-night (some even 3) policy. Some require you to stay Thursday+Friday or Saturday+Sunday or Friday+Saturday+Sunday.

The Poodle Day parade begins at 9am on Oct 1 (Saturday) but finding a hotel room for Friday ONLY can be difficult because of the above mentioned weekend policy. I have found several B&Bs that do not have such policy. PM me if you want the names of these lodging options.
