Balboa Park puts out the call for photogenic fidos

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (CBS 8) - Balboa Park is celebrating the two-year anniversary of its popular blog written by Cosmos the dog. Now it needs a face to go with the name.

Dog owners who bring their camera-ready canines to Balboa Park now have a chance to show off how photogenic their fidos really are.

"I think it's something creative and unique… something fun for us to do with our dogs," a dog owner said.

To celebrate its second anniversary, Cosmos's doggie blog, which highlights pet-friendly park activities, is hosting its first-ever Top Dog Photo Contest.

The rules are simple: snap a pic of your pooch anywhere in the park to show off the best of your baby and of Balboa Park.

Dog owners who frequent the park are already unleashing their creativity when it comes to posing their pooch in the park

"I'd probably take him to somewhere that has awesome architecture to show off his little toughness, his little rough side," a dog owner said.

The winner, voted on by a panel of park employees, will do the best job of capturing the spirit of the canine and Balboa Park itself.

    In 2006, the city of San Diego began allowing political campaigns to electronically file their financial reports, giving the public easy access to information on money in city politics. The county of San Diego wasn’t as quick to make the same kind of information available and continues to lag behind the city’s efforts.
