Time to get barking

Join 5,000 dogs and their humans at Bark in the Park featuring PAWSwalk, a festival for dogs and the people who love them.
   The all-day event, held Saturday, September 15, features games, contests, prizes, an off-leash area, celebrities, 100 booths, music, food, and the tenth annual charity PAWSwalk to raise money for the animals at PAWS.
   Your dog's mind can be read by a pet psychic, have her face sketched by a cartoon caricaturist, and if your dog's driving you crazy, you can get behaviour advice from PAWS behavior experts.
   PAWSwalk has raised almost a million dollars since 1992. All money goes to help the animals and animals programs at PAWS. PAWS operates a companion animal shelter in Lynnwood, a cat adoption center in Seattle, and Wildlife Centers in Lynnwood and McCleary.
