Puttin’ On The Dog’s 25th Anniversary

Festival of Fun for Pets and People

On Sunday Adopt-A-Dog held it’s annual dog adoption at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich, CT.

Sponsored by Cornell University Veterinary Specialists, Pet Pantry and Reckson, the day included judged classes such as “Aged To Perfection,” “Who Saved Who” and the Costume Contest. There were vendors, many tasty dog & people treats and, of course, the pet adoptions. The Laughing Pizza provided entertainment.

My Westie, MacDuff, enjoyed seeing his friend, Lizzie, the Toy Poodle. I had fun playing with the costumed Bulldog and meeting Cleo, the police search and rescue Bloodhound.
