This first annual Pooch Party will probably be more fun than a people party. For one, dogs are perfect guests. They mingle nicely with others, they always enjoy the food selection, and they don’t spill wine on your carpet. Secondly, there will be on-site adoptions! Never seen guests get adopted at a house party before, have you? The Shops at Legacy is hosting this event with pups from all kinds of local rescues, which include Boston Terrier Rescue, Hillcrest Animal Rescue, Lone Star Pyrs & Paws Rescue, Metroplex Mutts, Plano Animal Shelter, and Weimaraner Rescue. Dr. Troy Lindsey, vet at Blackstone Animal Hospital, will be on hand for complimentary consultations, too. If you adopt a new cutie pie, Melanie Gayle will give you 20 percent off any purchase you make during the day, and upscale sports wear store Gameday Cloth is offering up special doggie merch and treats. If that’s not enough, prove you’ve added a new member to your family, and Twisted Root will give you a free hot dog, side, and drink. Paciugo’s got your sweet tooth covered with buy one, get one gelato cups or cups for adopters. If you’re not looking to add more fur balls to your furniture, come on out and show your support. Bring your doggie or kitteh, and you can get a $15 microchipping. (I’m bringing my little guy. He loves to party.) Saturday, May 14, from 10 am to 2 pm at the Shops at Legacy
