We had our first Must Love Dogs - Singles Day at Maxwell Park's Dog Park, in Normal. Your dog can be a great icebreaker in meeting someone new! For some pet lovers, "Must Love Dogs" is a prerequisite to a relationship. The dogs sure had a fun time, and it was a georgeous day too!
Carl signs in at the HSCI Must Love Dogs social for singles and their dogs. Tank and Brandy are anxious to get inside and meet new friends!
A few of our singles take time out for a party pic: Traci & Maggie (dog), Zak & Moose (dog), and Katrina & Finnegan (dog).
Maggie and Finnegan enjoy some playtime by wrestling!
The singles swap dog stories!
Lucy, HSCI volunteer, greets the youngest member of the party! What a cute puppy!
Nancy gives Shadow a treat for being such a good boy.
Sophie LOVES her ball! Though not at the park for the HSCI Must Love Dogs, she is an HSCI alum, so we took her photo!
She may look tired, but Sophie is still ready to go!
Brandy takes a rest.
Tank comes over to check out the photographer.
Tank and Brandy make friends quickly, especially when they have treats in their pocket!
The pups get to enjoy doggie cake and other treats before leaving. Many thanks to Rover's Bakery at Canine Classics Spa & Resort for providing the treats!
We are already looking forward to this event next year!
