Fullerton, CA – If your pooch kisses like there's no tomorrow, eats like he has just gotten off a diet, or bears a striking resemblance to you, the Fullerton Museum Center would like to have a talk with you.

Dogs of all shapes, sizes and talents are being sought for the museum’s annual "Dog Days of Summer" talent show and competition set for Thursday, August 8 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The event will be held at the outdoor Fullerton Market, located on Wilshire Avenue, between Harbor Boulevard and Pomona Avenue.  Contest times are at 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. with sign-ups beginning at 4:00 p.m.  The Fullerton Market runs from 4:00 p.m. - 8:30  p.m.

Prizes will go to the dog who:  is the best kisser; has the loudest bark;  is the fastest eater;  does the best pet trick;  and most resembles its owner.

Owners may sign their dogs up for the competitions the day of the event.  The competitions are limited to 10 dogs per event.

In addition to the competitions, a variety of dog- and pet-related vendors will be selling dog treats, apparel, toys and supplies.  Other vendors will be offering dog-sitting services, pet adoption, and animal shelter information. 

Groups that will be participating in the event include Orange County Animal Care, Fullerton Pooch Park, Fast Friends Greyhound Adoption and more.

Fullerton Market offers farm-fresh produce, flowers, fresh-baked breads, arts and crafts, live entertainment, activities for children, and a beer garden for adults.

Parking for Fullerton Market may be found in any of the free downtown lots, or in the parking structures at Wilshire (enter from Harbor); Lemon Street and Chapman Avenue; and in the Transportation Center on Pomona and Santa Fe Avenue.

Persons requiring special accommodations to attend or participate in the “Dog Days event” or the market are asked to notify the museum staff at (714) 738-6545 prior to Aug. 8.
