Fido? He’s a Beauty.

Fido. Trixie. Bear. Obediah. Standard, funny, nonsensical, and sometimes just plain odd are the names we bestow upon our pets. One of our favorites is for a black Labarador; she answers to the name of Oyster.

Whatever their moniker, breed, or pedigree, bring them—one and all—to this Saturday’s Pet Beauty Contest.

At One Colorado, owners of all ages in love with their four-legged friends can have a complimentary snapshot taken between 1-2 p.m., then 3-4 p.m. In between shall be the so-called pet beauty contest. Will they be expected to trot, sit and roll over? Purr, cuddle, or chew on a shoe? We have no idea, but it should be fun as it’s being MC’d by the “King of Retro” Charles Phoenix. He is the celebrant of kitsch pop culture, has created culinary dishes with Conan and Martha Stewart, and is a recurring correspondent for NPR.

The Pasadena Humane Society & SPCA and the Kennel Club of Pasadena will also be in attendance. Be careful—one look and you may be heading home with Fido, Jr.
