Paws for a Cause

Environmentally conscious pooches take owners on a walk for the planet.


Summit County canines turn eco-friendly at today's Hiking Spree for Dogs. To help the effort, Metro Park naturalists will hand out specially designed bandannas with the motto "Planet Earth — Keep It Cool" stitched into them. "They're to remind people of global warming and things we can do to reduce our impact on earth," says organizer Pat Rydquist. The two-mile hike through Silver Creek Park's Big Oak area isn't restricted to pooches. As long as they're on leashes, any furry friend can join the trek. "Last year, we did have a llama and a goat," says Rydquist. "We had just a downpour, but they were completely happy to be out in the rain." Start hoofing at 2 today at Silver Creek Metro Park, 5199 Medina Line Road in Norton. Admission is free. Call 330-865-8065 or visit
