Dog Days Of Summer

az_welfare_leagueThe Arizona Diamondbacks MLB team held a “Bark In The Park” recently, with $5 from each ticket going to the Arizona Animal Welfare League! (It looks like a lot of MLB teams do these.) It’s part of a doggeh doubleheader- They’ll do it again on September 15. More images in this slideshow.

    I’ve been volunteering for this in AT & T Park (SF Giants) for 10 years, and it’s a howling good time. SF/SPCA volunteers help with the costumed dogs walk around the infield for judging and photos on the Jumbotron (fave moment – contestant relieving himself right in front of opposing dugout), refill water bowls in the stands, pass out treats and p&*p bags (“P%^p bags heeere, p%^p bags heeere”).
