This is the first year for the event, put on by the Wheaton Park District., which replaces another larger event.

She named the event after her Saint Bernard, who was unable to be there. The dogs were also able to have their photo taken with a Santa cutout and a surf board, take home ornaments, have off-leash play and go through an agility course with a park district instructor. A veterinarian was also on hand for any counseling. The park district plans to hold the event again next Monday.
