In case you are wondering if any dog-related events are happening in San Francisco this weekend, and we know you are, please read on.
Not Just for Bulldogs: On Saturday, James Lick Middle School in Noe Valley, will hold their 1st Annual Bulldog Day & Dog Show fundraiser. They’re raising money for sports, the arts, field trips and other activities which have been affected by recent funding cuts. Seeing as how the Bulldog is the school’s mascot, it makes sense that an entire day be set aside to celebrate this handsome breed. The fact that dogs of *all* shapes, sizes, breeds and ages are also invited is awesome!
This is going to be a jam-packed day with all sorts of activities ! From the press release
The festival will include: Dog competitions (for all breeds) throughout the day, a canine agility course; a”Bowzer Bar” and “Poochie Parlour” to pamper your pup; a Photo Booth run by professional photographer, Jim Burnett; carnival games; music; an “International Food Court”; Doggie vendor booths; a raffle and silent auction….
Dog contests will include: a “Costume Catwalk”, “Best Trick”, “Best in Show” (all 3 open to all breeds); “Cutest Toy” (dogs under 20lbs and 16″.); “Top Dog” (over 60lbs.); “Mutt-astic!” (Rescue dogs and mixed breeds of unknown heritage); and a“Bulldog Beauty Pageant” (just for American, English, French Bulldogs, and “wannabees”), which will end with the crowning of the lucky winning pooch who will be the face of our mascot for the coming year. Dog Trick performances by the Pooch Coach, Beverly Ulbrich….
