Victorian Days Meet & Greet, Belvidere, NJ



Please join us for an easy, fun day in Victorian Belvidere. We use Nancy’s house as “home base,” set up a GFNJ table in the front yard, and meet & greet from porch and yard while some of us walk the short block to the Green and stroll the perimeter with our gorgeous greys (we have replica Victorian male and female hats for those of you who dress your dogs).

There’s no set schedule, we just get out and mingle! We don’t take our dogs near the craft vendors on the interior area, so we take turns watching each other’s dogs so anyone who would like to check those items out has opportunity. Terrific antique car show surrounds the green. Dogs and humans can relax on the porch, shaded fenced back yard, or inside with the a/c whatever works best. Dogs who can’t M&G on the Green can hang at the house with two of mine who can’t go to the green when there are “strangers.” We make sure there’s always someone at the house so your dogs are not exhausted and you don’t spend the whole day with a leash on your wrist. The house is small, but we always seem to fit J

Start time is 10:00, ending about 3:00. Bring yourself, dog(s) and a chair. I will provide breakfast cake for carb/sugar to get you started, we make coffee in the house, and I’ll have cold drinks in the cooler. There are plenty of food vendors around the green for lunch!

Email Nancy at nancy_barnett@merck.com or collardelights@hotmail.com if you can make it and if you need directions.

P.S. We may have a dog groomer who will cut nails available during the afternoon. Let me know ASAP if you could use this service and for how many dogs, so I can try to set it up!

This is a rain or shine event for Belvidere, but we will cancel if the weather is bad. Belvidere Victorian Days Info

Applefest '14 in Warwick New York

Come join us for Warwick's famous annual Applefest in Warwick, NY.

APPLEST 2014 in beautiful Warwick, NY is a craft fair attended by over 30,000 people from all over the tri-state area.

GFNJ has had a booth and been a staple at this event for more than 10 years!!! We are given a special area to spread out and have dogs at our booth all day.

We need volunteers with and without dogs.
Your dog must be good in a crowd, friendly and pretty tolerant.
Last year we had some new volunteers and they were astounded by the reach of this event and how much exposure it gives GFNJ.
Even though it is a distance, those volunteers are returning!


If you are interested in volunteering with your Grey for 1 or more hours, please contact Nancy Bowden (845) 987-8663 or greygirl2008@gmail.com

As always we are so grateful to all who come.
