Wild, Wet Weekend at a Doodle Romp

Minnesota Doodle Romp August '16

Happy Friday Everyone! I can’t believe the weekend is almost here!

Several states have doodle meet ups called Doodle Romps. All doodles are invited to these romps, no matter what the mix is.

If you would like to see more pictures from this and other Minnesota Doodle Romps, look under #MNDoodleRomp or #MNDoodles.

Minnesota Doodle Romp August '16

Last weekend, I attended my very first Doodle Romp right here in Minnesota! Over 30 doodles attended this Doodle Romp meet up at Minnehaha off-leash dog park. At this dog park there are more than 6 acres of wood including trails, an off-leash area and access to the great Mississippi River where we could cool down. As you can tell, doodles love the water and it was a perfect day to go for a swim! I have never gone swimming in a river before and my mom was a bit nervous, but I had so much fun! It is amazing how much all doodles look alike when we are all wet! In some of the photos below I couldn’t tell which pup I was!
Minnesota Doodle Romp August '16I would like to give a couple of shout outs: First to Otis’s mom for snapping the first two pictures in this post! My dad wasn’t able to get any good pictures. As you can imagine, getting 30 dogs to cooperate was a bit of a challenge but Otis’s was able to capture some good photos! Second, thank you to these how set up these romps! It was so much fun and can’t wait to see where the next one will be. And third, if you can spot me in these photos you rock!

If you live in Minnesota, have a doodle and would like more information about future Romps, there is a Facebook group called “Minnesota Doodles.” Leave a message below and I’ll get you more information.

I want to know, Does your state have dog meet ups? What meet ups have you gone to?

    We could have seen each other. I was in the Mississippi River on Saturday afternoon, and was right next to Minnehaha Park!

    So much fun! I’ve been to pug events, but pugs really aren’t swimmers. Seeing all of those pups a-frolick in the water is quite a thing!

    We’ve gone to a couple of different meetups but not a breed one. It’s fun seeing all those pups together!

    This is so cute. A doodle romp. My schnoodle Victor (he’s have there) would love this. He tends to like doodles, or anything that’s a least part him. I will email you a pic.

    This looks like so much fun! We have never gone to a meet up like this because Ruby is a bit nervous around other dogs sometimes.

    Do you want any theme in the birthday pictures or just any pictures for your party?

    Looks like a lot of fun! The Golden Retriever rescue that brought us Toby has meet ups but we haven’t been. He’s been weird about meeting dogs since being attacked by a dog he thought was his pal. Fun idea to include everyone in Spencer’s Blogiversary. I’ll try to send a good photo – Congratulations!

    What a fun meet up! Looks like everyone had a blast. I can see how it would be hard to distinguish one from another in photos, they all look so adorable❤

    What a fun day, you’re so lucky you have a group of Doodles you can get together with! I always want to participate in Husky meetups but it almost never works out for us, I’ll have to make more of an effort to join. These photos are wonderful! I’ll be joining your 3rd Blogiversary Pawty, I’ll have to select a good photo to send you!

    What a fun event! I’m glad that you got to meet all of those new friends and swim in a lake. You look like you had a really fun swim. 🙂

    Is a Schnoodle a Doodle? We were told that Jack was a Labradoodle. Our vet believes, as do we, that Jack is a Schnoodle. Does this mean he would make the guest list? That looks like so much fun!!!

    That looks like so much fun! You think our boys are curly enough to sneak in?!

    As a person who organizes dog fundraisers and events, I know how much fun this is. Dex wants to be an honorary doodle. He and Spence really hit it off 😉
