Dancing With The Dogs In Dog-Friendly & Historic Downtown Dade City.


Dogs are celebrated in the very dog-friendly town of Dade City, so much so that they even have a special day just for dogs every year. Dogs’ Day in Dade City was held at Agnes Lamb Park on March 15. Proceeds benefited the Dade City Youth Council, an organization that has provided a dog training and exercise ring in the new My Dog’s Diggin’ Dade City Dog Park in Price Park. Community Pet Advocate, Lucy Avila and her team put together another fun, well-attended event. We saw many people and their dogs from all over the Tampa Bay Area. The event kicked off, as always with the dog wagon parade around the park, led by Miss Tampa, Katy Sartain and WPVC’s Abby Crawford of Ag Time With Abby. Then up on the stage for a fun dog costume contest with some pretty original and funny get-ups. As a media sponsor of this event, The New Barker donated a portion of sub- scription sales to the Dade City Youth Council. Photography by Anna Cooke.


The Chihuahua Meet-up Group of Tampa Bay met in Dade City for the morning, with a lunch date in St. Petersburg later in the day. Beatrice, Bindy and Lilly reminded us of the Supremes in their pink diva wear and Doggles.
