If you go every year, we know we’ll see you there. If you’ve never gone, don’t miss Puttin’ On The Dog at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park on Sunday, Sept. 21 from 10:00am til 4:30pm.

If you’re thinking about rescuing a dog, there are several great rescue groups there with available dogs to meet. There are also all sorts of fun contests to enter with your dog. My favorite is the costume contest.
