Photo of the Day: A day with the dogs

“There are no good dog parks in Carbondale that are open to the public,” Sawyer said. “Since this used to be a dog park it’s nice. It’s open, fenced in and we keep it clean. It’s great.”  (William Cooley | @Wcooley1980)

Katy Stoughtenger, a SIU alumna from Carbondale, and Lady, a mixed-breed rescue dog from the St. Francis CARE Animal Shelter in Murphysboro, share a moment while playing Sunday morning at the university’s Stehr Field.

Stoughtenger and Lady visited the field with Sawyer Schrader, a graduate student from Sterling studying engineering, and Lady’s companion Bennie, Stoughtenger’s 3-year-old boxer.

“There are no good dog parks in Carbondale that are open to the public,” Schrader said. “Since this used to be a dog park, it’s nice. It’s open, fenced in and we keep it clean. It’s great.”
