FIDI—People who own purse-sized pups now have a place other than the dog run to socialize. Canine boutique and spa The Salty Paw is hosting a "Small Dog Social Club" on Wednesday August 1st from 7:30 to 9pm. From the email we received about the event: "Dogs 20lbs and under will have the place to themselves while parents mix and mingle. This is just the first of what we expect to be a very popular event." The entry fee is $10; treats for both species will be served. Bu will any straight men show up? [RackedWire]
