Gone To The Dogs
by Laura Gelezunas, Video Diva Productions
The restaurant Daiquiri Dick’s is going to the dogs. It’s time to grab your best friend and head to the Pet Picnic.
The third annual Pet Picnic will be a howling good time on Saturday, December 6 starting at 11AM on the restaurant’s patio overlooking Los Muertos beach. Enjoy a gourmet, boxed lunch and there will be a special doggie bag for your pal.
Last year over 70 made an appearance at this fun-filled event. This year proceeds go to Ayuda a los Animales, Help The Animals, part of the PEACE non-profit association. They are responsible for the high volume spay and neuter clinics in Nayarit and now, Jalisco.
“It’s an amazing event,” says Bill Kelly, Dog Lover, “I came spontaneously the first year and have been hooked ever since, I always have a great time, win prizes and had a super lunch. I really look forward to this party every year.”
Audience participation is encouraged for the Best Costume and Best Trained contests. This year check out the latest in dog fashions starting at 11:45, followed by the Best Dressed competition at 12:00, and the Best Trained dog rounding out the show at 12:15. Don’t be late if you want to participate.
There’s going to be a raffle with all kinds of great items and door prizes, too. This is also a great chance to meet other animal lovers and learn how you can help in the plight of local dogs and cats.
Tickets are $225 in advance and $275 at the door. You can purchase them at Daiquiri Dick’s Restaurant or The Deli. Space is limited, so get your tickets early. It promises to be another tale wagging event.
