Doggie Lovers Day! November 16, 12:00 – 4:00 p.m.

As the unofficial spokesdog for the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center’s first-ever Doggie Lover’s Day, which I introduced in an Ask Cosmos post last month, I wanted to remind all my two-legged friends of what a fabulous event this promises to be for the whole family!


First off, you’ll get to meet me, in-the-fur, and find out why I’m so wild about blogging about Balboa Park. Secondly, you’ll get to see my good bud Tymer execute some amazing agility tests as well as watch some really pimped-up pooches strut their stuff on the fashion show dogwalk. In addition, there will be puppy puppet shows, experts to dish up the latest on pet care and gardening, a raffle for great pet-themed prizes, and much more. All activities are free with paid museum admission, which also gains you entry into the must-see Animal Grossology exhibition.


To help you plan your afternoon, I’ve posted the complete schedule below. See you then!
