Today was Dog Day Saturday. We’re pretty excited that this is finally happening in Grand Rapids, after two long years of petitions, city commission meetings and planning with the parks department.
Even though Pete’s unsociable behavior makes him canine non grata, Scott has taken part in the committee and he spent the day at Hillcrest as a volunteer. The group did a great job of organizing the day, handing out information, signing up donations and hydrating the pooches. I spent about three hours snapping pics and did my part by helping to fetch lunch.
Got a pooch? Live in the area? This park will be completely community-funded, so please make a donation. And keep your eye on the website to find out when the fencing will be up and the dogs will be free to run.
