Welcome to PIDO.org
BARKTOBERFEST: PIDO's popular Halloween event was a big hit! Scores of costumed dogs and their people came out to enjoy a beautiful day at the park. Thanks to Alpha Pet Supply, Andronico's, The Bark, Pegasus Books, Catahoula Coffee, and Metro Dog for donating prizes and goody bags.
Thanks also to professional photographer Andrea Roth for sharing her pictures, which can be seen here, and to pet photographer Daniel McPartlan for taking these fun photos. You can also see pics from Barktoberfest 2011 and 2010 on our events page.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the dog park cleanup on April 21. PIDO board members manned a table to tell people what the group does and why it's important for all users to band together, through PIDO, to protect the park. We received $61 in donations, sold $36 worth of merchandise, and gained five new members. With your help, the park is a nicer place to visit! ... Thanks also to those who participated in the big foxtail cleanup party on May 18 on the north side of the park! More than two dozen people filled at least a hundred trash-can-size bags with the debris left over after the park district mowed down the foxtails. Thanks to everyone who volunteered their time to make the park safer for dogs!
A few reminders: Please be sure to clean up after your dog ... Prevent your dog from digging (and if you can't, at least fill in the holes) ... Don't let your dog chase birds ... And keep an eye on your children if you bring them to the park. Not all kids--and dogs--know how to play well with each other. Thank you.

NEXT CLEANUP EVENT AT PT. ISABEL: Sat, May 18, 10am - 12pm
Please join us in maintaining Pt. Isabel as a beautiful park by picking up some extra poop. Meet by the bridge at the east end of the park. We'll also have PIDO T-shirts with a cool retro design for sale at our information table. Cleanups are generally held on the third Sunday of the month (this month is an exception). Rain cancels.
NEXT WEED PULL AT PT. ISABEL: Sat, Jun 8, 10am - 12pm
Has your dog ever gotten a foxtail in his paw, nose, or ear? Please help us pull foxtails and other weeds so the park district won't use toxic herbicides where our dogs play. No experience necessary; we'll show you which are the "bad" plants. Bring gloves and a weeding tool if you have one. Rangers will also have a limited number of tools and gloves to lend out. Meet in front of Mudpuppy's. Come for an hour, half an hour--whatever you can spare. Every bit helps! Weed pulls are generally held on the second Saturday of the month. Rain cancels.
NEXT PIDO BOARD MEETING: Mon, May 20, 4pm - 5pm
Members are welcome to come and relate any concerns. Meet at the North Branch of the Berkeley Library, 1170 The Alameda at Hopkins. The meeting room is downstairs (you have to enter the library and then go down).
PIDO has been working to keep Point Isabel clean and off leash since 1985. It is a nonprofit organization run entirely by volunteers, and your support is appreciated.
