After too many years in hiatus, the Sunol Country Festival
held on September 25, provided a wonderful way for our community
groups to work together. Save Our Sunol's Neil Davies says,
"I think it met its primary goal and that was to bring
the community together, it was really a community festival".
Always a festival favorite, the results of the wild and zany
pet parade are as follows: First place for prettiest pet was
awarded to Dali, a Great Pyrenean, owned by Scott Thompson of
Dublin; first place for spunkiest pet was awarded to Little
Ricky, a Yorkshire terrier owned by Ann Donaldson of Pleasanton;
first place for best costumed pet was awarded to Bella, who
was dressed in a pink ballerina costume with pink tights and
a beautiful crown of jewels, owned by Sara Orban of Oakland;
first place for most talented pet was awarded to Cleveland,
a weimaraner/lab mix who is also a Cleveland Browns fan and
who barks on command to the phrase "WHO LET THE DOGS OUT".
Cleveland's owner is Addie Beretta of Fremont; first place for
most unusual pet was awarded to Pepper and Mr. Snuggles, two
gray cats owned by Nicola and Bessie Barnes of Sunol. Second
place for spunkiest pet was awarded to Jake, a weimaraner /lab
mix owned by Rochelle from Sunol; third place for spunkiest
pet was awarded to Twiggy, owned by Sheila Hillhouse of Pleasanton;
and runner up for best costumed pet was Buddy, a shitzu owned
by Annelise Wexner of Pleasanton.

of All About Pets Animal Care for providing goodie bags to all
the participants. Thanks also to Jody McPheeters for coordinating

The action that day seemed to be at the Silent Auction tables,
where I hear there was some pretty fierce bidding for quite
a few much desired items. There were approximately 60 items
donated to the auction and according to organizer Cindy Frillman,
"The silent auction was really successful, there were a
lot of really nice things to bid on". Another wonderful
time in Sunol!
