The Texas Rangers held their 11th annual Bark at the Park game on May 14th where dog owners get to bring their loved canines to catch a Rangers game and enjoy the fun with other like-minded dog families. What a fantastic way for baseballs lovers and their pets to enjoy the day and spend quality time together.
It is great seeing more and more activities like this that allow pets to be with their families outside of the home. My daughter Dana and her boyfriend Bryce brought their lovable little Rosie with them to the game and she just had a blast! Festivities included a pre-game parade around the warning track, a best dressed pooch contest judged by the players’ wives, and a goody bag courtesy of AvoDerm Natural Pet Foods, Nylabone, and PetSmart. And, to top everything off, the Rangers beat the Blue Jays 6-5 so all of the locals (including the dogs) went home happy!
Bark at the Park is just one of the many pet-friendly activities you can do with your pets. Check your community for pet friendly restaurants, dog parks, bring your pet to work days, cat cafes and other activities that allow you and your pets to be together.
