Focus: A Saturday Gone to the Dogs

It was a sunny Saturday afternoon that had gone to the dogs — literally.

Grace Christian Church in Tinton Falls sponsored a day dedicated to dogs (and special pets). Dog friends were made, pet-loving vendors offered free swag, literature on animal causes and sources of help, and there were special pet crafts and healthy homemade treats for sale for furry friends. There was a also an agility course for some pet fun and training. And, in between all of it were blessings of everyone’s four-legged buddies.

Rumson-Fair Haven Retrospect paid a visit and ran into an old friend from Rumson haunt The Barn Theatre. That was Bonnie Deroski, who handles family and children services at the church and ran this other sort of show on a different stage and set. Small world. Full circle. Pet and theater connections collide in the area communities, as many others do. Other folks from the Rumson-Fair Haven area popped in as well. It was a howling success.
