The Washington Post - - METRO -

Wear­ing a Fourth-of-July-themed hat, Fin­ney, a Bos­ton ter­rier at left, waits with owner Christy Mar­shall, not pic­tured, for the start of the an­nual “Bark in the Park” dog show and demon­stra­tion in Columbia, Md. At right, Gabby Christo­pher, 16, of­fers a treat to her dog, Lou, also dressed in a pa­tri­otic out­fit. Sun­day’s event, spon­sored by the Columbia Town Cen­ter Com­mu­nity As­so­ci­a­tion, fea­tured dogs and own­ers dressed in red, white and blue parad­ing around Van­tage Point Park. Fi­dos for Free­dom also put on a demon­stra­tion of ser­vice dog skills. Dogs were able to cool off in a kid­die pool and have their “paw-traits” taken in the Smooch Your Pooch Kiss­ing Booth, ac­cord­ing to the Columbia Town Cen­ter web­site. Food and prizes were of­fered to dogs and their humans.
