For all of you baseball fans who are also dog lovers, did you know that a bunch of teams host a dog day each year? Four years ago, as part of a PAWS fundraiser, I organized a group of 20+ of us to go to a White Sox "Dog Day" game. The sad thing is I only found out about the actual dog day event, where you can bring your dog to the game, about a month before, so all the dog tickets were all sold out, and Fudge C couldn't come with. And, I was not able to bring him to the game the following year since we moved from Chicago to LA.
However, I was very pleased to find out that they also have this event at the Dodger Stadium, as well as many more MLB venues.
