Taking a bite out of cancer

At Bark for Life at Pleasant Hill City Hall Gazebo Park, dogs walk with their owners, above, around a small track to "take a bite out of cancer." The event is an extension of the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, which raises funds and awareness in the fight against cancer. There were special events for dogs and their masters, with prizes for the winners. Waiting his turn, Steve Cracknell, left, of Martinez, sits with his dog Chester, a goldendoodle, a cross between a golden retriever and a standard poodle.
