Dog lovers have an opportunity to show their appreciation for their own pooches — as well as support the development of a new dog park — with a Feb. 26 Pet Portrait Party.
To be held at art-a-site, 139 W. Wooster St., from 1-4 p.m., the event is organized by volunteers with Citizens for BG Dog Parks.
Registration is required by Sunday. That’s in part to give organizers time to have participants submit photos of their dogs and then prepare canvases that have the dogs’ images sketched on ahead of time. Participants will then be painting on the canvases at the party. The cost is $40. Money raised will help cover new dog park expenses.
“We’re so eager for Bowling Green folks to come together and celebrate their dogs and help support a new dog park,” said Jo Ascunce, who is with the group.
To sign up, visit BGDOGPARKS.ORG and make the $40 payment. Only 24 spots will be available.
As for the effort to include new dog parks in town, planning is progressing. For more information join the Citizens for BG Dog Parks Facebook group or visit the web page to be added to the mailing list.
