I'm not a pet owner, but I know many of my friends are. Actually, for some reason, now that I think about it, it's a rare thing to know someone without a pet.
So it pleases me to tell you that if you are one, especially if you are a dog owner, restaurants in Long Beach will be participating in a "GOING TO THE DOGS" promotion from December 4 - 12, whereupon if you come to a participating restaurant and order a highlighted menu item*, you will receive a voucher for a free ticket ($20 value) to the 2009 AKC/Eukanuba National Championship for every order of that item.
The two-day competition and exhibition features, you guessed it, dogs.
It's presented by Animal Planet and will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center December 12 and 13.
