Video: Pups in the Park proves distracting for animal lover Teddy Roosevelt

Pups in the Park at Nationals ParkHundreds of dogs and their owners got to witness another walk-off win for the Nationals Saturday as the team’s annual Pups in the Park promotion returned to Nationals Park.

Barkley, the canine mascot of the Washington Humane Society, was on hand to assist with the day’s festivities, but proved to be a distraction for fellow mascot and noted animal lover Teddy Roosevelt. B

Barkley and Teddy were busy playing in the outfield as the fourth-inning presidents race got underway. Roosevelt failed to compete as George Washington took the tape.

The sellout event, in which tickets and accommodations are provided for dogs and their owners, has been expanded to four dates this season. Dog tickets are still available for June 2 against the Atlanta Braves, July 7 against the Colorado Rockies and Sept. 22 against the Milwaukee Brewers.
