Hot dog! Nationals bring back Pups in the Park

The Nationals are welcoming dogs back into Nats Park this season.

Pups in the Park returns starting next Tuesday night, when the Nationals host the New York Mets.

“Good boys and good girls will be surrounded by dog owners and lovers in the pet-friendly Outfield Reserved section where they can sit, stay and enjoy the tail-ents of some of MLB’s finest,” the Nats proclaimed in a statement laden with too many doggone puns.

Other Pups in the Park dates include …

  • May 28 at 4:05 p.m., when the Colorado Rockies will be visiting.
  • June 13 at 7:05 p.m., when the World Series champion Atlanta Braves are in town.
  • Aug. 12 at 7:05 p.m., when the San Diego Padres visit.
  • Sept. 17 at 4:05 p.m., when the Miami Marlins are in town.

Owners will need a ticket not only for themselves but also for their dog. Human tickets are $35. Tickets for pups are priced at $10, and all proceeds benefit the Humane Rescue Alliance.

Owners will need to complete a waiver and bring it to the game to get into Nats Park with their dog.

Dude, you’re missing the game.

Let’s just assume the dog caught the ball.

Hound sense of smell + abundant hot dog aroma = eventual insanity.

Those are good dogs right there.

The abundance of food no doubt leaves some pups all but shoving their owners toward the concession stand.
