Bark in the Park was swell!

Kathleen Williams-Miller
Looking for a home: Chewy, an adorable St. Bernard mix, is one year old. He’s looking for a home with older children or dogs. Chewy is high-energy and loves to play and romp. He is a perfect playmate and really sweet.

Watson here, and I want to tell you how much fun I had at Bark in the Park. The race was great, even if my folks were slower than molasses. Miraculously, we made it over the finish line just in time to get a medal. There were so many great booths and nice folks it was amazing! I scored tons of treats and cool stuff. Thanks to everyone who made this the best day of the year for me and my friends. Please support the following businesses that have supported us.

XOXO Watson
