Hundreds of bitches took over Winslow Park today.
They — and many other male dogs, along with their owners, masters, mistresses and assorted kids — romped across Westport’s 32-acre dog park. The draw was the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce-sponsored, 1st-ever Dog Festival.
Over 50 vendors hawked non-electric dog fences, gourmet pet food and holistic veterinary care. The Animal Control folks offered tips on hot weather.
Selectmen Jim Marpe, Avi Kaner and Helen Garten, plus state legislators Jonathan Steinberg and Gail Lavielle, judged tail-wagging, best trick and dog-and-owner-lookalike contests.
The sun shined. Animals and their owners made new friends.
It was a great day to be a dog in Westport.
