Hey San Jose, here’s an idea!How about all you wonderful dog companions out there get together for a local showing of the Hero Dogs Award Show. That way you can meet your fellow dog lovers – and who knows, get involved in local groups and organizations. Maybe make a fund raiser for your dog group, or organize other events for the South Bay? Just my too sense.
Write to DawgHugger if you would like to propose an event idea.
