Dia Internacional de los Perros

Dia Internacional de los PerrosThis Sunday, June 1st, Purina and the National Parks Company will sponsor the International Day of The Dog. You've heard every dog has his day, will this Sunday is that day. The activity, which will be free of charge, will be held in the Peace Pavillion (Pabellón de la Paz) located in the Luis Munoz Rivera Park in San Juan. Scheduled to start at 11:00 a.m., the activity is supposed to last until 5:00 p.m.

The "Dia Internacional de los Perros" aims to provide the public with tools to improve the care of dogs and the master-pet relationship, as well as the successful coexistence within the family unit. During the activity there will be lectures, massages and yoga for dogs and masters, 'pawcures', music, gifts, refreshments and entertainment for the masters and their pets to enjoy.

Dog yoga, now I've definitely heard it all. I can just imagine the scene, a bunch of doting owners pulling on their dogs and calling out instructions. Which reminds me of one of my favorite "The Far Side" cartoons from Gary Larson. In the cartoon, the owner of a dog is standing over the dog, pointing and yelling "Blah, blah, blah Rex. Rex, blah, blah, blah." The caption of the cartoon is "This is what dogs really hear." Word.
