Who let the dogs out?

Dog owners unite for weekly walks in Bangor area

BREWER - We all know exercise is good for us and our four-legged friends. So a handful of area residents that have formed the group Bangor Area Boston Terriers, or BABT, are making walking together a part of their weekly routine.

"Our leader Claire started the group because she was alone with her two Boston Terriers and she wanted to meet new people and get her dogs together with other terriers," BABT group member Lisa Andersen explained. "She actually met her husband through her terriers. He was looking for a dog, thought her dogs looked interesting and so he got her phone number and they eventually got married."

The BABT group has been meeting at the Spring Street park in Brewer on Saturdays where they set out on a stroll with other dog walkers complete with leash, water, doggy treats and waste bags in hand.

Biscuit Bucks help train service dog
