Puttin' on the dog: It's the cat's meow!

There's a "pawty" in Bell Buckle this Saturday, and you and your best furry friends are cordially invited.

The second annual Mutts in May celebration is slated to begin at 10 a.m., and promises to once again be a sight for animal-loving eyes.

Music, munchies

The festivities are set to begin at 10 a.m. with The Gallagher Trio picking bluegrass tunes for patrons. Following the performance, there will be contests, vendors, speakers and humane societies.

And of course, it wouldn't be Bell Buckle if you couldn't plan on getting a belly full of good food -- aside from their regular offerings, the Bell Buckle Cafe will be selling a variety of different hot dogs to fit the occasion.

Some of the highlights will include the best trick, ugliest dog, cutest dog, shortest tail, most spots, owner-dog look alike, best costume, and wiener dog race competitions.

Want a dog?

Paws 4 Health will be there cooking up quick, easy and healthy meals for your pets that your whole family can eat. Happy Tails Humane Society will also bring dogs that are in need of new homes.

Several vendors will have the newest pet goodies on hand so you can spoil the pet you choose to show off.

The dog days are here early this year, but that doesn't mean you and your four-legged family members can't have a "pawsitively" good time.
