News and Announcements
Posted Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 2:08 PM CDT by CatherineHi all. Just to let you know that the CBC's Market Place, airing at 8:00 p.m., this Friday (October 4), will address the costs of vet services in Canada. This should be very interesting and informative for us loyal dog owners.

Posted Monday, May 20, 2013 at 4:15 PM CDT by CatherineIt happens! Here's how to re-set your username and/or password:
1- Make sure you click into brucepit.ca (NOT brucepit.com)
2- When the home page comes up asking for your username and P/W, click onto the FAQ without logging into the site. It takes you to a screen that asks what question you have. Type in "Forgot Username" or "Forgot Password" and it will give you the instructions on how to proceed to reset any one of these.
3- It will ask for your e-mail address (the one that is listed on this site.) If you have various ones, and can't remember which one you've used for this site, contact one of the admins and we will send you an e-mail to the address that we've been provided. The system must recognize the e-mail address in order to send an automated message with instructions on how to re-set your user name or password. This message should be received within a few minutes. You cannot use the same password, but must provide a different one.
This is for security reasons, as passwords are encrypted and this ensures your security whereby even the admins on the site don't have access.
Hope this helps!
4- If you have the correct e-mail address, follow the instructions.
Posted Friday, May 17, 2013 at 3:04 PM CDT by CatherineHi all. Just to let you know that the City has arranged for an underground poop container which will replace the red bin at the parking lot end of the park. You may still use your plastic bags. The idea behind putting it underground is to remove the stench! They've tried it at other dog parks and it works great. Conroy Pit will be getting one as well. The contents will be picked up by the City using a truck with forks, in similar fashion to the way they emptied the red bin. A step in the right direction!
Posted Sunday, March 10, 2013 at 6:30 PM CDT by speedway7The administrators of the Bruce Pit web site apologize for any problems encountered with the site.
The repair of any problems is a trickle-down situation and cannot always be fixed immediately. Please be assured, however, that we are monitoring it and try to find solutions as quickly as possible.
We hope that you enjoy your time on the site and appreciate your participation.
Posted Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 5:43 PM CST by CatherineHi all. The administrators of this local website are determined to ensure that we're not invaded by potential spammers/scammers. We check this out on a daily basis. You'd be amazed at the various locations (such as India, Bangladesh, the Phillipines, and the list goes on) that 'new members' come from, and the services or wares they are allegedly promoting, not to mention the inane history they provide (their alleged dogs' names, the url, and other info.)
We will continue to try to protect us all from these people and sites who would and should have absolutely no interest whatsoever in our local dogsite.
If you are to get a message/post from a 'new member' from whom you've never heard of, or where they've posted in a totally unrelated part of the website, one that may (or may not) appear to be legit, anyone where the message or origin of such is questionable, or that raises a few red flags, please alert one of the administrators so that we can look into it. Do not reply to the posts until you are assured of their legitimacy, something we can do from this end. If you want to ensure anonymity, send a private message to one of the administrators, and we will deal with it immediately!
I don't want to scare anyone, but I do want you to remember that spammers and worse, scammers are a part of the world-wide web now and since there would be no reason whatsoever that anyone from across the miles would be legitimately interested in our little home website, we have to wonder why they'd bother and we have to therefore, take the necessary precautions!
Posted Sunday, October 7, 2012 at 9:22 PM CDT by CatherineHi all. Please be aware of this ingredient in some pet shampoos (dogs and/or cats) which can pose a health risk (sometimes serious) to those who are allergic. When you buy shampoo or take your dogs to the groomer's, please take care to ensure that this particular ingredient does not form part of the pet shampoo....
Posted Monday, September 17, 2012 at 7:53 PM CDT by CatherineHi all. It has been brought up numerous times, that we hear about events at basically the 11th hour. I realize that the NCC has no obligation to advise us of this beforehand, but we seem to have a pretty good relationship with them to date. So, I've sent an e-mail to them asking if they would consider letting us know of future charity events. I've told them that many of us would love to participate, put up posters, etc., but we generally find out about it when we actually arrive. This puts both the charity/rescue and us at a disadvantage, as some of the event tents require cash donations - something we don't always think to bring when we bring our dogs to the park. I'll let you know what happens with my request.
Meanwhile, it would be great if those of you who are involved in the various rescue and charity events, and others, who hear of upcoming events, to post something on this site.
Posted Sunday, January 8, 2012 at 3:51 PM CST by CatherineWe have quite a few new members, and YAY for that!!! Just to let you know that if you want to add your dog(s) to the "Meet the Dogs" Link, you need to do the following:
When you sign in, with your name and password, click into the block that says "Remember Me?" This will allow you to go to the Meet the Dogs link and then it's as easy as pie (well not mine, as I'm a lousy cook!) Just follow the instructions. You can add as many dogs as you want.
Remember though, that this is not a default thing, so each time in the future, if you wish to add a dog (or make changes to the current entry/ies), you'll have to put a check mark in the "Remember Me?" box when you sign in.
Posted Wednesday, July 27, 2011 at 5:56 PM CDT by CatherineThere have been a couple of confirmed cases of Giardia, one of which, most definitely was to have come from BP. It's not known if it was fesces eaten by the dogs, or water drunk from infected ponds and stagnant water sources where animals (not only dogs) would have defecated. The following article, written by Dr. Ernest Ward, DMV and reviewed by many veterinarians, can be found on the Cedarview Animal Hospital Website. I beg that all members read this article, and further, spread the word to your friends who own dogs. This doesn't just happen at an off-leash dog park, since we can go just about anywhere in this city, where these is un-collected fesces, and puddles! But, since one very recent case came from BP, this information needs to get out soonest, and all people who bring their dogs there need to get the message of the health issues relative to the poop-eating and water puddles/ponds/holes at the park.
