GET ALONG DOGGIES: Spend Saturday afternoon with your dog at Ed Levin County Park, playing games and learning about how your best friend evolved from wild canine to the pampered pet you can't live without. Gather at the dog parking lot at noon and meet up with other dog owners for some lessons on how our four-legged loved ones communicate with each other. Make sure Fido can play nice with others.
