Our last Coffee Bark of the year took place on Dec 5th and lots of dogs and people were in the holiday spirit, enjoying coffee and donuts during a chilly morning at the St. Nick’s Dog Run. Out next Coffee Bark will be in the spring. In the meantime, please help us keep the dog run clean by picking up litter and trash and disposing of your dog’s waste in the trash cans around the dog run perimeter.

Thanks again to everyone who helped with the Coffee Barks in 2010 including…
