Stanley, left, and his owner,
veterinary technician David Gurbacki, find the only patch of dry ground Sunday
afternoon at La Salle Park’s Barkyard. Recent snowfall left parks in the area
wet and muddy, but that didn’t stop Stanley from getting out to enjoy the sun.
The Barkyard is open from dawn to dusk, regardless of weather, and features an
area exclusively for small dogs in addition to its general dog run. By
