As a dog parent, I always feel bad having to leave my sweet girl Maggie behind from so many fun outdoor activities. If you're like me, you don't have to look much further than downtown Lansing for fun suitable for the whole family, dogs included.

The Lansing Lugnuts will hold the "Dog Days of Summer" promotion for every Monday home game this season. During these Monday games, fans are welcome to bring their legally licensed and vaccinated dog to Cooley Law School Stadium for some baseball, treats, tail-wagging, pee-mails, and hole-sniffing hellos. 

Tickets start as low as $8 in advance. For full details on rules for "Dog Days of Summer", ticket sales or any other information, call the Lugnuts at 517-485-4500, or visit www.lansinglugnuts.com
