Vote for Potsdam NY!!!! They are building a dog park behind their SPCA so it will benefit shelter dogs!

Okay it's eight minutes after noon. I'm trying to be patient. Is there a special site we need to go to, to check on our status? Come on PetSafe, "Baby needs a new pair of shoes!" loosely translated... Tina needs a pond to swim in! Hoo-eey, I'm getting to ready to howl! Ahroo! We need a park for our puppies!

At 4:30AM West Winfield had 1445 votes! Start planning a Park Warming Party for all the puppies and their owners. Look at all the cute photos in the community photos section. Where have all these dogs been keeping themselves? Tina Louise can hardly wait to meet her buddies at the park where they can hang out and howl! BYOB=Bring Your Own Bone! Bark for the Park! Bark Bark Bark!
