Central Bark Opening in Oswego

Thursday, November 13th, 2008

A “Bumblebee” PainterCopper the ArtistBobbing for Hot DogsCentral Bark Oswego hosted a Grand Opening and Adoption Event last Saturday. Four-legged attendees slurped “Mutt-ini’s” and “Bark-arita’s” while their parents enjoyed a barbeque lunch. A photographer, pet communicator and chiropractor provided their services for donations to various adoption groups. Perhaps the most popular event was “Bobbing for Hot Dogs.” The Pug in the photo wasn’t sure about the process at first. But once he found his first hot dog he didn’t want to leave!

The two dogs pictured contributed their artistic talents to a group painting benefiting A.D.O.P.T. for The Dog Art Challenge.
