IT’S THE END OF THE WEEK FOR DOGS

by Craig Altschul

Dogs, like people, like to celebrate the end of the work week, a Friday for most "celebrants." It’s no different in Rutland where dogs are a welcome part of the Friday Night Live festivities, said the Rutland Herald. You’ll find old, young, purebred, and mixes among the pups wandering through the open-air marketplace. Some "work" like Izzy who hangs out in the Humane Society tent offering her paw and rolling on her belly. Some like to people watch, such as 12-year-old Jake who sits in the window of Ladabouche’s Furniture store. Some come to hear the music, like six-year-old Becker who was waiting for the evening’s entertainment to begin. But mostly, they come to get all the attention they can get. Oh, and their human companions wouldn’t have it any other way.
