There hasn’t been anything at the Cotton Bowl of any interest since Loverboy played there in 1986. And that was waaay before we ever arrived in Dallas.
But this Sunday, the famous Cotton Bowl becomes home to something far more relevant than any football game, concert or death-metal laser show. It’s the seventh annual Dog Bowl, the one day of the year when the entire stadium goes to the hounds and turns into an off-leash pooch park.
There’s live music, pet/owner lookalike contests, canine portraits, doggie crafts, trainers, vets and plenty of product vendors with the latest must-have four-legged accessories. You can even get your fluffbombs up-to-date on all their shots and get them microchipped thanks to on-site services from Luv My Pet.
Or add another mutt or two to your family with on-site adoptions from the area’s best rescue groups. Because if there’s one thing we’ve learned from our best lesbian friends, it’s that seven dogs are just as easy to care for as one.
And you only need 11 to form a football team.
Sunday, April 7, 1:00-5:00 p.m.
