Waves ‘n Woofs: It's Pet Day on the Bay

The Fido-fun fundraiser will set sail to help hounds in need.

IF A POOCH AND SEAL... could hold a conversation, a real heart-to-heart type of talk, what might the topics be? Some might sniff at the notion, claiming that canines and their canine-esque ocean-loving pals don't have enough commonalities, but we think that the two could find a lot to discuss. A love of food? Digging the sunshine and fresh air? How to give a really loud and attention-getting bark or sound? Yep, dogs and seals, if they spoke the same language, would find so much to go back-and-forth about.

PET DAY ON THE BAY... returns to San Diego Bay. Hornblower Cruises & Events, which is the company behind the sweet fundraiser, is "... generously donating a portion of the proceeds to the orphaned pets of the Helen Woodward Animal Center..." of Rancho Santa Fe.

Your ticket is $27, while your lil' guy's admission is gratis (one free pup with one paid adult, is the deal). Should you dress up your floofie in something ocean-cute, like a lobster outfit or a nautical get-up. Oh, yeah, absolutely, if you have such clothing on hand. Should you bring blankets and other dogly donatable items to drop off? That would be grand. For all of...

YOUR NEED-TO-KNOW INFO, do stop by this site now. And ponder what a seal might say to a dog, or vice versa, if the two ever had a chance to meet up for lunch, on land or at the ocean.
