No bunny rabbits here. While there are indeed doggie Easter egg hunts from New Jersey to Oklahoma, dogs in Georgetown prefer to assist their human friends in finding anything of value in that Easter basket and elsewhere. We present another Dog of the Week. One of their favorite places in town is Rose Park. Story, with interviews by Craig Wilson and photography by Ricardo Jimenez, provided by the Friends of Rose Park.
