The next Digs for Dogs gathering will take place Wednesday, March 27 at 6:30 p.m. due to expected bad weather on Tuesday.
The group, spearheaded by Angie Fredericks and Liz Brown, are looking to get a permanent leash free dog park somewhere in Liverpool. The idea behind a dog park is to have a place where dogs can play and socialize with each other.
The dogs that came looked like they were having a good time as well. There were many games of chase, wrestling on the ground and greeting many different people. It was a chance for owners to socialize with each other as well.
The ball field makes a good temporary location, but Brown says they’d like to find a permanent location for just dogs. Though everyone there that night cleaned up after there dog, she says it would only take a few that didn’t to cause grief.
With a successful first gathering, the group is hoping it will translate into support from the community. They are looking for members to join as they work to find a permanent place for a park.
“If enough people want to use it, it shouldn’t be difficult to create a dog and people friendly space in our community.”
