SAGA Humane Society’s 12th Annual Halloween Pet Spooktacular is a HUGE HIT!

Carlo’s and Ernie’s Runway Bar was packed…dogs, kids, and people eating, drinking, getting into trouble and there to support the SAGA Humane Society.

IMG_6153The first and only one in San Pedro – founded 15 years ago – and holding one of their biggest and funnest (I’m pretending that’s a word) fundraisers of the year.

I found a parking spot far far away…and walked in next to a celebrity.  Willy as Willy Nelson.

It was a beautiful WARM day and packing really was difficult.

Taking pictures of dogs is HARD work.  I’d guess 90% of mine turned out as a blur or like this…

or worse…

A butterfly princess and her two headed zombie dog.

Looking sweet.

I was busy talking and…totally missed it!

So in the end, it was a huge, fantastic, packed event…where many left smiling, with candy and food and very tired dogs.  It made me reminisce about last year’s party where an EXCELLENT photographer helped me with DOG PHOTOS…my nemesis!  2014.
