The Wichita Falls Dog Park has just about everything to make a dog happy: other dogs to play with, a safe place to run free, but it doesn't have a water source.

That's going to change in just a couple weeks.

Cameron Blake, a Wichita Falls resident, is a 15-year-old member of Boy Scouts troop one. During his spring break, he's working to complete his Eagle Scout project.

He applied for grant money through Nutro dog food company, and got $2000 to install water fountains at the dog park off Fairway Blvd.

So far, Blake and his volunteers have done a lot of digging at the dog park grounds.

"What we've had to do is make a couple of drains to lay piping down to get the water to the fountains," Blake says.

He says he hopes to have the water fountains ready to be turned on a two weeks or so.
