Saturday was the first ever “Bark for Life,” a canine event to fight cancer. Forty dogs showed up at Kendrick Park, with their companions, to walk the full loop around the park which amounts to a mile and a half of exercise for both dog and owner, but much more.
Nicole Marron is involved with community relations for the American Cancer Society.
For many, dogs are an important part of the family.
Tenille Castle was there with her five year-old pound puppy Sampson, a very talented Sampson.
It wasn't just fun and games for Tenille and Sampson. Tenille was there to support the fight against cancer.
There were vendors on hand, plus demonstrations, activities, and prizes for the dogs participating in the event.
