Dog-friendly events in Houston for April 2017

Did you make it out to see the bluebonnets this year?  If you hurry, you still might be able to find a patch for photos.  I'll be sharing images from my bluebonnet sessions soon.  Until then, let's see what dog-friendly events are happening around Houston this month.

The first event in the list, Doggy Party on the Plaza, actually already happened and I was there with a booth - I enjoyed meeting many of you! 

I didn't take many pictures at the event, but couldn't resist these little guys.  No surprise, they stole the show everywhere they went!
