In celebration of the Year of the Dog, the Museum welcomes award-winning cartoonist Patrick McDonnell, creator of the comic strip Mutts, to talk about his favorite mutts, from real-life dogs to Snoopy. McDonnell will sign books after his talk, including his newest collection of Mutts comics, You Have Those Wild Eyes Again, Mooch. From 2:00–4:00 pm, experience Lucy’s favorite thing—dog kisses! Don’t miss the chance for an unforgettable smooch with Katy Rose or Scamp at the Humane Society of Sonoma County’s famous Kissing Booth. Also, Compassion without Borders and Rohnert Park Animal Services will be on site with pets available for adoption, and their newest exhibitions, Then Came the Dog and Working Dogs, will be on view for visitors to explore and continue the Year of the Dog fun.
This event is included in regular Museum admission.
