Celebrity dog among many canines at Park Ridge’s First Fridays event – TribLocal.com

Park Ridge will be swimming with dogs this Friday, from Dalmatians to Lab/Shepherd puppies to a famous 145-pound canine that’s donned the cover of Hallmark cards.

First Fridays Dog Days of Summer will feature the four-legged creatures all around Uptown as area pet agencies and park districts demonstrate grooming and training techniques and help begin the adoption process. The 29 stores staying open late with special deals will also play dog-themed music as a tribute to man’s best friend.
