Central New York is known for its generous, volunteering spirit. And its also known for its love for the great parks all over the state. Once again this year, Governor Cuomo is asking New Yorkers to help out for the 6th annual "I Love My Park Day".

Dog owners love to bring their furry friends with them everywhere, and they really are such good "car riders". So, you'll probably be pulling up to a drive-thru at some point with Fido in the passenger seat. What chain restaurants in the area offer doggie treats on their "secret" menu?
