Shelbie Smart (left), of Huntington, introduces her new dog, “Skunk,” a pitbull-boxer mix, to “Kimber,” a golden retriever owned by Mary DeLaney (right), of Huntington, as Huntington Parks and Recreation Superintendent Steve Yoder looks on. The meeting was part of the Dog Days of Summer Social that took place at the Barks & Rec Dog Park on  Friday, Aug. 31. Dogs and their people played ball, ate ice cream and got some exercise inside the off-leash park. The park posts updates on its Facebook page, the “Barks and Rec Dog Park Group.”
