Cotton Bowl Stadium at Fair Park
3750 Cotton Bowl Circle, Dallas, TX 75210

FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Flaunt your four-legged fur ball at Fair Park’s Cotton Bowl Stadium for the free, seventh-annual Dog Bowl from 1 – 5 p.m. Sunday, April 7, when Dallas’ most historic football field transforms into a super-fun dog park for canines of all sizes to romp and run unleashed!

Enjoy pooch-pleasing pastimes including a pet/owner look-alike contest, giveaways, exhibits, pooch portraits, canine crafts, music by Dallas’ seasoned jazz bassist Barri Pearson, and more. (Please note: A nominal fee applies for pooch portraits and crafts.)
Talk to trainers, veterinarians and pet product vendors, and learn the latest tips and trends in the tail-wagging world, plus take advantage of special pricing on vaccinations and microchipping thanks to Luv My Pet. And check out local dog clubs, rescue groups and animal welfare organizations with adoptable dogs at the Woofstock “tail” gating zone outside the entrance gate of the Cotton Bowl.

Misting ponds and giant “dip and sip” splash bowls will keep canines cool and quenched, while humans will have the opportunity to enjoy refreshments (including beer) and other concessions.

Monday, September 17th, 2012

ME Cancun, the Mexican resort is always pet-friendly, but the weekend of October 4-9 in particular will be extra, extra special for guests’ smaller four-legged family members.

ME Cancun, known as a destination with style, sophistication and seduction, is offering the special rate for travelers that wish to enjoy all the excitement that comes with a sunny escape, only with their pooch being the center of attention!

The rate applies for travel dates October 4-9, but there is no night minimum required (i.e. a guest could use the rate for one night only if desired).

Upon arrival, ME Cancun will check-in the special canine, taking their photograph that is then given to his/her owner as a keepsake in a custom frame. Each pup will be greeted with a welcome cookie and special punch. On Saturday evening (Oct. 6), guests and their furry friends will partake in numerous activities including manicures, ‘paw’-dicures, and massages, as well as a doggy buffet of dog cookies, kibble, liver, etc. If the adults want some “ME” time, they can drop their dog in the VIP Pet Club where the dogs will be entertained with a doggy gym, toys, dog walkers and dog beds.

All of the above is included in the rate, as well as: accommodations, all F&B (breakfast, lunch, dinner), in-room dog amenities (plush bed, blanket with hood, bowels, toys), pet fee, doggy diploma, late check-out of 3 pm, welcome gift, taxes. Package must be booked by September 28, 2012, and it is only applicable for dogs 25 pounds or less.

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local animal rescue, Tierra de Animales (http://www.tierradeanimales.org). It’s sure to be an unforgettable weekend that your readers’ pups will be dreaming about for a lifetime! For more information.
