Pooches on the Parkway a Success!

Last weekend the third annual Pooches on the Parkway fund raiser for our off-leash dog park was held.  The weather couldn't have been better for a dog walk!  Thanks for helping to support the only Blue Springs off-leash dog park.  We appreciate everyone who participated and especially all those who volunteered their time.  Just a reminder: the park (on the east side of Lake Remembrance) is now open – enjoy this wonderful park with your dog.  For more information about the dog park go to

For those of you who are looking for a convenient way to wash your dog, there is a new dog wash located at the car wash just north of Highway 40 on 19th Street.  This unique facility features a safe way to wash your dog, rinse them off, and dry them.  There is even a special deodorizer spray setting for dogs that have had a run in with a skunk.
