Lots of dogs do undeniably look like their owners, so this sounds like a fun community event, especially for you dog lovers out there in Pima County. Can’t wait to see the winner of the Cutest and Ugliest dog categories, but remember that beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or dog owner).
And why a “monsoon”? Because it’s raining (cats) and dogs!
