Fidos for Freedom walk is tomorrow

Fidos for Freedom, a non-profit organization that trains and provides service and hearing dogs  is having its annual fund-raising walk on Saturday.

The Fall Stroll ‘n Roll starts Saturday at 9 a.m., and runs until noon, at Centennial Park in Ellicott City.

The event includes vendors, games, prizes, a bake sale, demonstrations, dog contests and the walk around the lake.

Fidos for Freedom, in addition to working with service and therapy dogs, also operates the DEAR (Dogs Educating and Assisting Readers) program.

A dip with your dog

At the end of summer in Howard County, the recreation and parks folks do something I wish Baltimore’s would: They open up a pool to dogs.

This year, it’s the pool at the Roger Carter Recreation Center, 3676 Fels Lane, in Ellicott City, MD.  On Saturday, Sept. 6, $10 will get you, a friend and your dog into the pool, from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Registration is required, which you can do by going to the Howard County Recreation & Parks web site. At the HCR&P site, do a search for session 3003.101.

For other activities to partake in with your pooch, visit our newly added “Doggie doings” page.
