Mickey Cunningham of Wenatchee walks Cricket, her rescue dog, at Riverfront Park regularly.
Cricket, 10, is a poodle schnauzer mix that Mickey got from the Humane Society. “I wanted a poodle because my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and I thought a dog would help. He did. He was my husband’s best buddy. We miss him,” said Mickey.
Sherry and Dave McGregor, Wenatchee, flew all the way to Philadelphia in a snow storm to pick up Sophie and Bently who are litter mates. Sophie is in the carrier and has arthritis. She and Bently are 3 year old Norfolk Terriers. Roxy in the middle is a 10 year old Norwich Terrier.
Sherry says the dogs are pretty easy going with plenty of personality. “They are big dogs with little bodies.”
Miso and Mushu are 11-year-old pugs.
JoAnn Nelson, East Wenatchee usually walks her dogs on the Riverfront loop trail on the eastside but on this day she and her dogs were walking on the westside. JoAnn says Miso and Mushu are brothers and are very loving, very gentle.
She got them when they were puppies and she says they keep her company.
