CityDog Yappy Howlidays Muttmixer
December 9 Seattle, Wash. at CityDog World Headquarters, 6417 SW Fauntleroy Way, Suite D. CityDog Magazine and Westside Yoga and Doga invite you and your pooch into our "home" for the holidays! We’re rolling out the red carpet at our world headquarters to celebrate all things dog this season.

So, please join us and fellow dog lovers for some holiday cheer, with live music by Whiting Tennis, dog art by local artists and photographers (our "pawty" is in conjunction with the West Seattle Art Walk), and of course, mixing and mingling with two- and four-legged friends alike.

The event is FREE to attend, but please bring dry and/or canned dog food to give to Dogs Deserve Better and be sure to pick up a swag bag that will make your dog’s tail wag! Please RSVP to with the number of humans and number of canines attending in your “pawty.” Dogs must play well with others (that goes for humans, too) and remain on-leash at all times. If you've never been to one of our Muttmixers and want a glimpse of what they're like, then check out this fun video.
