He’s getting lots of love and care at the Shelter, but needs a forever home. Bernie would do best at…

Pet Parade - Dog Park Representatives

The annual Pet Parade is scheduled to start Saturday 9.10. at 9 AM. Thinking of this really fun event, it seems that we ought to have a representation of our Frank Ortiz dog park walk along to show our community that dog park regulars (four and two legged ones) are well socialized and sweet and not the wild beasts some like to believe! What would it take to make this happen? Anyone interested? Too late?
