Just one year ago, the dog park at Buchanan Park was merely a simple, fenced off space along the eastern edge of the park where dogs were welcome to run and play. While some may argue that is all a dog needs, City resident Angela Bauman dreamed of something more – a canine amusement park for her German shorthaired pointer Beau and the many other local dogs that frequent the park. She entered her idea in the Beneful Dream Dog Park contest, and 10 months after winning the contest, Angela and Beau’s Dream Dog Park is finally open. Earlier this month, Beneful’s Dream Team, made up of celebrity... read more
