Arf in the Park; a First for Rochester

Posted at: 07/21/2013 7:22 PM

Many local artists set up shop in Essex Park in Rochester this afternoon, but their customers were a bit harrier than normal.

They call it "Arf in the Park" where dog lovers can enjoy an afternoon of fun with their pets. Artists and crafters showcased their dog themed paintings and merchandise, and local rescue groups had dogs there that were available for adoption.

"So many places don't allow you to bring your dogs anymore. So part of what I enjoy doing is creating events in which people can come and enjoy an afternoon with their dogs as well," said Pam Miller, Owner of BACB Unleashed.

It wasn't just people who showcased their masterpieces. Many dogs paw printed their own paintings as well. This event is the first of its kind in Rochester.
