A commercial group promoting the concept of a dog wash station at Montrose Dog Beach will be in the parking lot on Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 9 AM until 5 PM. The following information is from Emily and Paul Fehrenbacher (and their dogs, Simon and Ginger):

GREETINGS FRIENDS, FELLOW DOG OWNERS, AND CHICAGOANS!:

Chicago's Montrose Dog Beach is a wonderful place where our furry family members can run, play, and splash in Lake Michigan. Unfortunately, when it's time to leave, there's no easy way to clean up these dirty doggies. Try as you might, you can't even find a simple hose for a basic rinse. The result is smelly, wet, and sandy dogs. YUCK!
We believe that clean dogs make for happy owners; come find out how we plan to make this a reality at our beloved beach!
To do so, join us on Sunday, September 29 from 9 AM to 5 PM near the parking lot of Montrose Dog Beach.
There, we will showcase our proposed project called "Moxie Wash." We've come a long way and still have much work to do, but we're ready to show you what we're thinking. We'll unveil one of our state-of-the-art dog wash stations and the overall concept of Moxie Wash. Unfortunately, the station will not be operational since there is not a sufficient temporary option for draining the water. But, we will show you renderings of the beautiful structure that will house four self-service dog wash stations and, by having one of the stations on display, you will be able to appreciate the unit's fully-integrated rinsing, shampooing, and drying capabilities.
Moxie Wash could fundamentally improve Montrose Dog Beach for both dogs and their owners. We are committed to making this happen and hope that your positive interest in our project will help spur us on towards our goal!
Expect lots of fun to be had by humans and canines, so bring your pooch and check us out this Sunday from 9 AM to 5 PM at Montrose Dog Beach.
SEE YOU AT THE BEACH, WHOOF WHOOF!!!
