Subject: Dec '06 Balto/DC/Annapolis Area Dog Events

Despite the frantic holiday season and cold weather, there's actually some fun dog happenings this month. In addition, all kinds of places are offering pet photos with Santa, way too many for me to list. Check your local pet store, shelter, vet, pets-on-wheels etc. One interesting variation on this theme is at the Westfield Annapolis Mall & Dulles Town Center where you can take your dog to the mall for photos, see below for details.

BTW, I have a 9 m/o spayed female brown/bronze Newf pup here looking for a home. Let me know if you're interested in this pretty girl.
