Mr. Romance and I have been trying to do something different each weekend. We try to do something that gets us outside; maybe we go somewhere we've never visited, go on a hike or do something we have not done for a while.
This weekend we went to the Bulldog Beauty Contest in Long Beach, CA. Now that is definitely something we have never done before! Our son's bulldog, Butterball, was not competing, but a lot of her friends from her LA Bulldog Meet Up group were, so we went in support of them. I have to admit that Butterball did look quite fetching in her dinosaur costume.
There were other dogs and other competitions, too. One of the competitions was for best costume. Check out some of these cute dogs. Some of their owners were very creative. The Batman in his bat mobile and those dogs with wigs and goggles, were certainly entertaining. The winner was a bulldog set up in a sweethearts kissing booth, but I was not able to get a photo or a kiss.
There was also a contest for the oldest dog. The winner was a 23 year old toy, but it had a costume on so we are not sure of its breed. Next year, we will take our Toy Fox Terrier, who will be 15 years old this year. She would have won second place today, as the second runner up was a mere 10-1/2 years old!
I have to admit one of the funniest pets we saw today was this pig. She sleeps in the bed with her owner.
