melbrod I'm still in Co Springs, which is semi-close to Denver. There are a few of us here though.

Why not start a new thread with a shout-out for anyone living in the CO front range area?

JariaPippin This thread is so dead. But Karma and I just moved to Denver!
Anybuddy still nearby?

kaloric If the north/west side of Denver is closer to you, Dr. Mona Fasth (fasthvet.com) apparently has her own mobile practice now and folks say she is excellent at cropping, and also a respected Dobe breeder.

I don't remember the Golden practice she used to be part of, but the senior veterinarian there was also a Dobe person and also had extensive cropping experience, unfortunately I also can't recall that doc's name. She might be retired.

New Dobie Mom in CO

Hello! Im getting my Dobie puppy in two weeks!! I would love to be able to meet other Dobie owners when he is old enough. Also, any suggestions on a good DVM for the ear cropping??

melbrod Sorry you're not coming, but respect your decision--getting a dog is a life-changer, and both dog and people are happiest when the timing is right. It'll happen when it's supposed to. Best of luck!

morgan I think I'm going to be a no-show.

DH and I have been talking, and, much as it sucks, getting a dobe now isn't the best idea. I know it is the right thing, but I don't think I'm zen enough about it yet to be around y'all's cuties.

Standard disclaimer: I'm not going to even open petfinder or craigslist, but if we still happen to stumble across the right one, well, all bets are off.

morgan Thanks for doing a test run

melbrod I think everyone's seen it, but I posted another thread--something like calling all dobes take 2, updating the directions. Things have changed a bit since I was last there--I imagine the old directions would still work, though; you'd just get to have a little more fun deciphering them.

Looking back at my directions, there may be another parking lot squeezed in between #1 and the lakes #2. I think I'll go by the park this weekend and see if any of my directions need clarifying. Otherwise, see ya'll there!
I was planning on bringing my camera and it does take short movies (about 3 minutes long).....

To get to Fox Run Park:
Drive north on I-25 from Colorado Springs to the USAFA North Gate Road exit. Turn left and head east on North Gate Road, past the Western Museum of Mining and Industry, through several sharp turns, about 3 1/2 miles, east to Roller Coaster Road (if you reach US 83, you've gone too far). Turn left and head north on Roller Coaster Road to Stella Drive (about 1 1/2 miles). Turn left on Stella Drive. After about 1/4 mile, you will turn right into the park.
You can come up Powers until you hit Highway 83, then drive north to Northgate Road, turn left (toward the mountains). Then turn right on Rollercoaster Road and follow above directions--Rollercoaster to Stella, etc.

Once you enter the park, there is a short divided road which makes a T at the main park loop road. Turn right, go around a curve to the left and you will see the parking lot for area #1. (Think lollipop--go up the stick, turn right, and start around the edge). I think that's the best place to meet--easy to find, easy walk to the lakes and a trailhead, big parking lot, open fields so you can get some distance from whoever you need to while you wait, and still be easy to spot dobermans! My only concern is that that place can sometimes be the center of whatever group activity is going on in the park. I guess in that case, the best thing to do would be to stay on the main park road, bearing left around another turn--the next parking area on the left (should) be the parking for the ponds #2. Not much parking there, if that's full, drive around the park 15 times yelling "Have you seen any dobermans?" at anyone you see. Might work.

Places to meet?? Parking lot for the mining museum (just off the Interstate, North Gate Road), maybe? But I don't know when they are open, might have a barricade or something.
This perfect - thanks so much for the detailed explanation..I think I'll be okay now. (Wiping sweat from brow).

Can't wait to meet all of you, and let's touch base closer to the date just to make sure we're all together.....Thanks!

I think meeting around parking lot 1 would be the best. LOL at the "have you seen any dobes around?" I'll just look for all panicked people running from the pack of killers.

Possibilities are:
1. An area with a pavillion or two, children's playground, bathroom (I don't know if any bathrooms are open this time of year) and grassy (nice grass) fields around it. Sometimes used on weekends for various sports and group activities.
2. An area with two small ponds with shallow and deeper areas, a pavillion built out into the water, walks around and between the lakes. To me vaguely reminiscent of a Japanese garden, without any of the sculptured plants. This area and the previous area are generally the more populated areas, but the lakes are a good place to practice "melting" your dog.
3. A picnic area in the pine trees, a bathroom, trailhead for some nice forest trails, generally not as populated as the others.
4. Another playground, bathrooms, and a fair sized field (I think mowed?). Also adjoins the forest trails.
5. A trailhead and parking lot, on a different road from the main entrance (the two roads meet in a right angle, with the park set between them), set into the trees, only connected to the park by a trail system. Bathroom.

There are several trails through piney woods, all connected to each other and the picnic areas. Seems to me that #1 is the farthest away from any trailhead. The outside loop is maybe 2 miles??? Actually, I have no idea how long they are, in spite of hiking them several times.

I haven't been there for a while, but these descriptions should be fairly accurate.

I'd be glad to draw maps or locate them online, but I need to know where I should start.
Is there a place we could park and meet and then go from there? I'm horrible with directions and if there's trees, and multiple landmarks, I may end up hiking to China.

Let's shoot for 12:30, 10/25 at Fox Run - sound good?

Can't wait to meet all of you that can make it!

I am bringing both Nissa & Arkus, so you can't miss us. We'll be the storm of dust coming towards you. LOL

CoDobe I vote we eat before-hand, or bring something to munch on for yourself. I'm probably not going to spend more than an hour or so....

Oh, by the way Lauren - the picture of London in your signature is too precious. She's like "Yes, I know I'm too cute".
10-08-2008 10:35 AM
Colorado Dobes I would think it would be kind of hard to eat while we're all watching our dogs. I know mine will not want to sit still while I eat! She'll be wanting to play with all her new friends.
10-08-2008 01:41 AM
melbrod Before or after lunch does bring up the question: Do we pot-luck, brown bag it, or simply eat early somewhere else? Pot luck might be awkward with the dogs all gathering round!! LOL
