Last Saturday September 15th DogTrekker was on hand, and paw, at the 18th annual Bark in the Park San Jose
at Naglee Park. The event, hosted by Naglee Park neighborhood’s Campus Community Association
(CCA) raised money for the CCA, Humane Society Silicon Valley
and San Jose Animal Care Center.
With the sun shining and the temperature rising, owners and their dogs converged on Naglee Park for a day of window shopping for some, and socializing for all.
Organizers reported that over 3,000 dogs brought their humans to the event to take part in contests, watch demonstrations and visit the vendors arrayed around the park. DogTrekker was smack dab in the middle of the action and we had a great time visiting with old friends and making new ones. We even got to see our friends from Mendocino, and dapper Hairy Putter at the Visit Mendocino Booth
Ken Podgorsek, 2012 Chair of Bark in the Park and otherwise known as the Big Dog said, “Bark in the Park 2012 was a howling success. Over 3,000 dogs and 15,000 humans enjoyed a nice day in the park visiting over 90 vendors and watching some very exciting Dog Entertainment. Our ever-popular contests drew even larger numbers this year with everyone having a great time. Bark in the Park remains the Best Day in a Dog’s Life for another year.”
Here at DogTrekker we couldn’t agree more and have already marked our calendars for next years event, Saturday September 21, 2013 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can be assured we will be barking in the park again next year and we hope hope to see you there!
