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.
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…
So let’s just get to the decent ones…
A butterfly princess and her two headed zombie dog.
This boy who would not show me his true identity.
There were raffles, silent auction, art sales…
The amazing SAGA Board members and volunteers…
Holy raffle prizes!
To the dogs!
We had a bartender with her martini.
And Miss Bella patiently waiting to get into her hamburger stand for the contest.
A beanie baby.
A beautiful Pedigree princess.
And these two! Lobster and chef. Awesome.
The gorgeous hostesses of the event.
Cutie little NEMO fish and the fisherwoman.
Prowling cheetah dog…
Kids LOVE a spider puppy.
The costume contest was about to begin. Dooley Bear got into his AWESOME SeaWeed Monster mobile – he won for “Funniest Costume”.
And the judges, the lovely former Miss San Pedro, Michelle, Mary from the San Pedro Sun and Kristian and his son Ethan.
And looking gangster.
Dooley was eating up the attention…
A bit less on the gangster side 😉
Grandma and little Red Riding Hood waiting patiently. Someone should have a GORGEOUS photo of these two…they were so cute on stage. Dog patiently laying down wearing reading glasses…adorable.
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.
But this is only the beginning!
There is so much more going on for Halloween WEEK in San Pedro.
There is a Haunted House at Wayo’s for kids and adults.
There is a Wine Social at Wine De Vine.
There is a family party at Black Orchid restaurant on Halloween night. And the HUGE Holiday Hotel party and a THRILLER DANCE CONTEST! Many have been practicing their whole lives for this…
