Holiday Party for Dogs – Waggy Wonderland

In Houston there’s not much chance for snow. But there’s always a chance to have a Waggy Winter Wonderland when you use your imagination! Co-hosted by Rebecca Bridges of HoustonDogMom and Tricia Hrapmann of BriggsNWiggles, this is our way of giving back to our favorite local charity!

Waggy Wonderland, benefitting the Harris County Pets Heal-A-Heart Program, will take place on Sunday November 5 from 11am – 2pm at Bayou Heights Bier Garten 3905 Washington Ave Houston.
