Weekend dog fun
Two worthy pet events this weekend are not to be missed. On Saturday, the Wags and Whiskers Marathon and Pet Fair to benefit the SPCA of Westchester takes place at Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park, Route 202 in Yorktown NY. High-tail it with your best buddy on a 2-mile walk, then enjoy music by 100.7 WHUD, food, games and crafts for the kids and shopping in the vendor village. It’s from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Call 914-941-2896 for info.
Here’s two pups enjoying last year’s walk:
On Sunday, take your pooch to the American Cancer Society’s Bark for Life at Bear Mountain State Park for a walk around Hessian Lake, 7 Lakes Drive, then enjoy demonstrations, contests and games. $25 to register. From 8 a.m. to noon. Call 800-227-2345 or e-mail email@example.com.
