Dogs of every shape and size (and ability level) gathered with their masters on Saturday, September 18 to hike the Glendale Farm Open Space trail for the Dumb Friends League’s (DFL) Wag ’n Trail.  More than 1,000 people and 500 canines participated in the fundraiser, a 1.6 mile scenic hike to raise funds for the DFL’s Buddy Center.  The fun fall hike brought in more than $150,000 for the Buddy Center which was built in 2002 to meet the needs of the growing Douglas County population.
