 District 2 County Commissioner Art De La Cruz and the Bernalillo County Animal Care Services Department invite everyone to the Day of the Dog/Dia de los Perros celebration this Saturday at the Rio Bravo Dog Park.

KOB-TV weatherman and animal enthusiast Steve Stucker will be present, along with his four-legged friends.       

WHO:             Bernalillo County District 2 Commissioner Art De La Cruz,                                         KOB's Steve Stucker, neighborhood residents and their dogs

WHEN:          Saturday, Nov. 7, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.      

WHERE:        Rio Bravo Dog Park, 3902 Isleta Blvd SW (3 blocks south of Rio Bravo)

This festive event will include contests and fun for fury four-legged dog friends and their humans.

Contest categories include:

•           Best howl (sponsored by Avalon Home Pet Care Service)
•           Largest dog 
•           Best trick 
•           Best pooch smooch and more

There will be “Doggie Bags,” provided by Western Mercantile, for each participant.

“This event will be lots of fun, but it is also intended to remind residents that the Rio Bravo Dog Park is a great place to take their dogs every day,” County Commission Vice Chair Art De La Cruz says. “This park, which opened in March, 2012, provides just one more way for our citizens to be responsible pet owners.”

On-site vendors will include a dog photographer, a home pet care service, a caricature artist doing dog and owner caricatures, animal-themed greeting cards and Bill’s Kettle Corn and Barbecue.

Plus, the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department will be on hand for a K-9 unit demonstration.

All dogs must have current shots and be on a leash to attend.
