It was “Bark in the Park” night at Dunkin’ Donuts Park Monday, an event that lets the dogs out, all for a good cause.

It was “Bark in the Park” night at Dunkin’ Donuts Park Monday, an event that lets the dogs out, all for a good cause.

Man’s best friend got to take in America’s favorite pastime as the Hartford Yard Goats faced off against the Portland Sea Dogs.

“I mean, he’s loving it. He’s going to be passing out by the end of the night easily,” said Kyle Nouray of Broad Brook.

Dogs in the stands made way for dogs in the parade, showing off their best selves.

"We're just trying to drive home the point that this is everyone’s ball park," said Tom Baxter with the Hartford Yard Goats.

People who brought their dogs had to buy a $5 “Pooch Pass” that became a donation to Fidelco Guide Dogs.

While fans took in some baseball with their pups, service animals from Fidelco were among the pooches on hand to teach spectators about their role in the dog world.

“We kind of want them to take away that these dogs can go anywhere that their handler goes,” Corrianne Gagliardi explained.
