The place for pets, and their owners

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 amy.zattosky@cancer.org.

About this blog
For most animal lovers, pets are members of the family. They carry around pictures in their wallets and schedule vacations with pets in mind. This blog takes a look into the world of a pet owner: the good, the bad and the just plain obsessive.

She liked cats enough, but didn't really think of them as true pets. That changed when her brother brought an abandoned 4-week-old kitty into the family, dooming us all.
