Prairie Oaks Metro Park has gone to the dogs. On Aug. 17, several hundred canines descended upon the park’s Darby Bend Lakes area to participate in the annual canine party known as WAG! Fest. While there, the pooches tested their agility on an obstacle course, played in the water with new friends, begrudgingly got their nails trimmed and had a dog-gone good time. Their humans also got in on the action as they shopped for treats and listened to seminars on how to keep their best friends safe. Shown here are some scene captured at the tail-wagging event.
