This week I took my dog to the groomer (Dazzle Dog Grooming Spa at Audelia and Royal) and on my way out grabbed a flier for a Bastille Day party on Sunday benefiting Poodle Rescue of North Texas.

The theme is "afternoon in Paris", with a cake walk, costume contest (dogs only), raffle, lookalike contest and auction. It all takes place in our neighborhood at the Dallas Ballet Center, 8530 Abrams, from 1:30-4:30 p.m. The admission charge of $10 per adult and $5 for children includes refreshments.
