The Ding Dong Dash, part of the Bell Tower Festival hosted by the Jefferson park and recreation department, had a four-legged twist this time. Canines were invited to be part of a Strut Your Mutt 1-mile run/walk or to run along with their master for the 5K and 10K runs.

Entry donations for the dogs were a fundraiser for the proposed new Greene County animal shelter.

The Ding Dong Dash drew 13 more humans than last year- five more for the 5K and eight more for the 10K race.
