If you're an animal lover and a bowler, then this is the event for you! Even if you're one or the other, this is a great event for families to get together with their furry (leashed) family members. The event is from 12-5 this Sunday the 12th. If you've always thought your dog is the cutest on the block, stop by and prove it.

There will be the Northland's Cutest Dog Contest. 1st prize is $50 and judging starts at 1pm. Animal artists will be on hand as well as face painters. Vendors will be there offering the latest and greatest products for all things dog. You can get info at this event on adoptions and pet fostering as well.

Country Lanes North is also offering bowling specials that day. The event will be taking place at their outdoor beer garden. At 3pm there will be a special appearance by the Duluth Police K9 Unit. This is all made possible by Wild Hearts Unlimited LLC and Country Lanes North. If you'd like more info on The Pet Zone Minnesota, click here.
