A dog-gone good time

Messenger photos by Dedra Cordle
Thousands of canines from across the state descended upon Prairie Oaks Metro Park on Aug. 26 to attend the annual animal fiesta known as Wag!Fest. For six hours, pooches of all ages, breeds, and abilities, played in the water at Water Bark Beach, met new friends, begged their human companions to buy them some treats, begged the humans manning vendor booths and food trucks for even more treats, and generally had a dog-gone good time. Shown here Galloway pooches Theo, Roscoe, and Chloe catch the sights of the event.
