WATER is OFF until Spring. How you can help!

WATER is OFF until Spring. Please bring any recycled milk, OJ & water bottles to the park filled w/ H2O. We will need it to clean up for the next few months. There will be a blue recycling container in the entrance to the park for empties. Save the caps! You can also help by taking any empty containers you see home, filling them up and bringing them back to the run the next time you visit. If you are in the dog run during the day the park bathroom is open, you can fill them up there as well. Lastly, if we all walk our dogs an extra 5-10min before coming to the park we can get them to go to the bathroom outside the run:)
Thank you!!

R.I.P. Spike

It is with a very heavy heart that SUDS announces the loss another of its
founding pups. Spike, owned by Debbie Hafner & the late Mark Barberi, passed away at the age of 10.

Spike was a constant presence at the park and at all SUDS events, being our
Grand Marshall each year at the St. Patrick’s For All Parade. Like many of
our dogs, Spike was a rescue. He was as true a character as there was in
Sunnyside, and another reason why we are able to enjoy our dog run today.

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Debbie. Spike will sorely be missed:(

Large run closed thursday

Not sure what time it will happen, but the parks dept notified me today they would need to close the run to repair the “sinkhole”. They needed to get the work done before cold weather settles in.

I cant see the work taking more than a day or two, so they may have to close the large dog run to complete the work.
Cheers,
Rick

RIP, Barnum, a SUDS original

It is with a very heavy heart that I forward the news that Barnum, a SUDS original, passed away today, @ 14.

Barnum was Matilda’s 1st friend @ the park, and they bonded the very first night they met. Barnum was an incredibly funny character, on a neverending search for food and females. He was a frequent visitor to my Poconos home, and I loved having him there, as I knew I would do nothing but smile and laugh at his shenanigans.
His owners, Jimmie Underwood and Ingrid Larson were part of the original group that founded SUDS and were instrumental in getting the concept of a Sunnyside dog run off the ground, approved, funded and built. They did most of the design work, which the Parks Dept. used. I went to visit Barnum last night and thanked him, as without dogs like Barnum there would be no SUDS dog run.
Goodnight, Sweet Prince, you will always be missed.
