G Gathering Bark in the Park

Bark in the Park



Chesapeake Humane Society's fundraiser, Bark in the Park, was recently held at Chesapeake City Park. A beautiful fall day was perfect for the dog races, contests, and pet-related vendors that were scattered throughout the park.  Hundreds of dog enthusiasts and their furry friends enjoyed the event.
