New D.C. Dog Park is On Its Way!

Pups in our nation's capital should be celebrating in the streets! A group of dog-loving folks, organized by one of All Things Dog Blog's readers, has been raising funds to create the Chevy Chase Dog Park. As they near their goal, a Yappy Hour is planned to celebrate and continue the fundraising. Dog lovers of all kinds are invited to this event to be held Monday, May 9, from 5-7 PM at Pete's APizza, located on the corner of Fessenden St. and Wisconsin Ave. NW. Feel free to bring your fido!

A $10 entrance fee will cover your pizza. Pete's APizza will be donating 25% of all other purchases of food or beverages to the dog park group to help make their goal a reality.

To date, the Chevy Chase Field Dog Park Group has already raised about $10,000 of their $15,000 goal. Much of the funds raised have come from donations from Friendship Animal Hospital, Councilmember Mary Cheh, both ANC3E and ANC3G, and donations from group members. They have worked very hard to get this park completed, and are on the home stretch.

If you're a DC resident, feel free to join in the fun on Monday evening, and don't miss out on your chance to win some really cool prizes such as doggies spas, boarding stays and even great wine from Paul's Liquors. Raffle tickets for the prizes are being sold for $2.

The park is located at Chevy Chase Recreation Center  5500 41st Street, NW  Washington DC 20015 adjacent to Chevy Chase Field.

Thanks to organizer Karla, an All Things Dog Blog reader, for notifying us of this event. You can reach her @ We would like to encourage all of our readers to Adopt a Dog Park in your community. You can even stand up and be counted by having your sponsorship shared at our Adopt a Dog Park site. Notify us at  See you at the park!

And as always, don't forget to visit 5 Minutes for Fido, where Tanner and Oliver spout off their opinions and generally offer up silliness.

Hi Y'all,

Glad dog parks are still in fashion. Do so worry everytime I see people leave the doggie duty behind that soon we won't be able to go anywhere!

Y'all come by now,
Hawk aka BrownDog
