Did you watch the video montages that I put together? The dogs have so much fun there! We're hoping to make another soon once I get enough video clips. Soon I will be rolling out a NEW site specifically for the Woodglen Vista Dog Park, since not everyone is comfortable using the Facebook page I created (privacy concerns and such). We will be holding a rummage sale and other community activities to help raise money for the Woodglen Vista Dog Park. I'm excited that we're finally getting a safe, fenced in area! Hooray! www.santeedogpark.com (short link to the FB page)
