Heads up, everybody! The traditional two-weekend World Championship Over-the-Line (OTL) tournament is happening in July. The island will be nearly impossible to drive on and park on July 8, 9, 10 and 15, 16, 17. In addition, there will be RVs parked in the northern section of the dog park, and the gates at the north end will be open, so dogs could escape. Our best recommendation is to just stay away from the island on Saturday and Sunday of both weekends. On Fridays, you can often go down to the south end and park along the fence line.
OMBAC has been organizing this event for decades and contributes to the community through charitable giving, with its OTL tournament as a major fundraiser. For more information about OMBAC and OTL, visit their website
Canine Respiratory Virus Now in San Diego
The Humane Society and the SD County Veterinary Medical Association recently sent out bulletins regarding the outbreak of a new respiratory virus in San Diego. It has prompted the Humane Society to not admit owner-surrendered dogs at this time. Only stray dogs will be taken in.
Most dogs who contract Canine Pneumovirus will develop cold-like symptoms (including coughing, sneezing and nasal discharge). If you notice any of these symptoms in your dogs, PLEASE do not bring them to the off-leash area until their symptoms have gone away as the virus is very contagious. You should also contact your veterinarian to decide if your dog needs to be evaluated and possibly started on treatment.
In the meantime, see you on Facebook
