Patriotic pets on parade

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - In Rancho Bernardo, some of the proudest four-legged patriots put their best paws forward Monday to celebrate our nation's birthday.

At Webb Park in Rancho Bernardo, a star-studded cast of canine candidates was on hand for the Patriotic Pet Contest. Dignitaries included: Bark Obama, Joe Bite-Em, Nancy Puglosi, Bitt Romney, as well as Nathan Fetcher and Mayor Hairy Sanders.

"We're looking for as much red, white and blue, enthusiasm, showing the spirit of July 4 and the spirit of our country," judge Robin Kaufman.

I know what you're thinking. This is nothing but a fluff story. But in this contest, all pets are created equal. And, in the end, all of the participants received a ribbon for their efforts.
