It was a beautiful day on Saturday, perfect for a walk in the park no matter which end of the leash you were on.

Dogs and their owners turned out in packs for the Ninth Annual Bark In The Park event at Hefflinger Dog Park. Bark In The Park connects vendors with their target market, dog owners. Five hundred to 1,000 dogs and their owners were expected.

"There are a lot of new pet spas, there are new pet products, everything seems to be evolving for the care of the animals," said Bridget Jansen. "Everyone is spending a lot of money on taking care of their pets."

The pampered dog market continues to grow. The first year of Bark In The Park there were between 10 and 15 vendors while Saturday there were more than 50.

Prizes were given out for best dressed dog, a look-alike contest and best dog style. Money raised by Bark In The Park goes to keeping Hefflinger Park and Hanscom Park dog parks open.
