Friends of the Fairgrounds: Rocky and Dewitt

Meet Rocky and his owner, Dewitt. Rocky brought his owner in the office a few weeks ago to donate money for the doggy bags found at the Fairgrounds and to thank us for letting him walk at the Fairgrounds. Dewitt says that he and Patricia (not pictured) have been walking with Rocky at the Fairgrounds for years because of its park-like setting and because it makes Rocky happy! Glad to see you out here, Patricia, Dewitt and Rocky; and, thank you, Rocky, for the donation! 🙂
