Mr. Bunny returns to the Clague House Museum

You know it is Spring when Mr. Bunny returns to the Clague House Museum for pet photos.

Did you know that the Clague family were pet owners? Old pictures and family stories tell us they owned both dogs and cats, while living on the farm. Sophronia Clague was especially taken by both cats and dogs.

Many years ago, it was common to have pets working on family farms here in Dover, now Westlake. Although most of our beloved pets are not working on farms these days, they are still a big part of our families.

I can imagine if Sophronia were here today, she would enjoy seeing all the pets at the Clague House having photos taken. This month you have the opportunity to have your pet's photo taken, as Mr. Bunny returns to the Clague House Museum for pet photos on Sunday, April 10, from noon to 6:00 p.m.

Grab your pet and make plans to hop on down to the museum (1371A Clague Road in Westlake) to capture some special memories of your pet. Money raised helps to purchase new American flags and maintenance.

The cost is only $10 per pet, and you may bring your own camera as well.

For more information and to make a reservation, please call Mila 216-961-6374 or 216-848-0680.

Please look for us at the Westlake Rain and Garden Show on Saturday, April 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 pm.
