IOLA, Kan. (AP) _ The people who designed the new dog park in a southeastern Kansas community didn't forget the special needs of little dogs.
The Iola Register (http://bit.ly/QxoDPC ) reports the city expects to open the dog park within the next few weeks. The site measures 130 feet by 180 feet, with a special 90-by-40-foot pen reserved for canines weighing 30 pounds or less.
And right in the middle of that pen is a feature sure to give the little ones something to yap about _ a tall, healthy pecan tree that's been full squirrels.
While small dogs romp, run and go nuts in their pen, the main part of the park has a structure designed to entertain larger breeds: a mound and tunnel, good for chasing and hiding.
