The City of Cedar Park held their inaugural Cedar Bark Festival over the weekend at Veterans Memorial Park. Hundreds of dogs and their owners showed up for this free event to elicit donations for the Williamson County Regional Animal Shelter, a very good cause. Among the delightful pooches was Daisy Rage The Velvet Underhound, the cute Basset in the opening photo. Visitors to the festival got to watch some cool disc dog demonstrations and also enter their dogs in competitions for best costume, ugliest dog, fastest dog, etc. The dogs came in all sizes, too. Bentley, a 2-pound, 4-month old miniature Yorkie, got to know Rev, a Great Pyrenees. They played well together, too! These were among the photos I took for the Austin American-Statesman.
