In honor of it being National Love Your Pets Day, and our obvious love for animals around the First Warning Weather Center, we figured ‘let’s take a brief break from the “weather” blog, and pass along some fun pet events happening in town this weekend!’ So… who better to do the honors than our very own lovable, stylish weather dog, Kaxan!
Woof! That’s ‘Hello!’ in dog speak! Kaxan here. First thing is first… Happy Love Your Pet Day! One of the best days of the year if I do say so myself. Don’t forget to give your pet a good belly rub, new toy, or my favorite, treat today!
Alright, let’s get down to business. My friends in the KXAN First Warning Weather Center have asked me to bring to you the most tail waggin events for pets in and around the Capitol City. So, get your cats, lizards, piglets, rabbits, and of course dogs ready for some fun! Here we go:
