Volunteer dog walkers help during snowstorm at Lollypop Farm

Dutch was decidedly not excited about the frigid weather on Sunday.

An older dog with a brindle coat and a patch of white on her chest, she headed outside the door of Lollypop Farm with Pam Hensel, a Fairport resident who has volunteered as a dog walker since March.
