Man Massages Dog

After months of being cooped up in a tiny apartment and taking walks in tongue-dripping tropical heat, your dog is stressed out. Don’t bother calling the Dog Whisperer; just bring him to the Historical Museum of Southern Florida’s second annual Bark Brunch at the Oasis from 10 a.m. to noon at the Raleigh Hotel.

He’ll relax with a massage in a sanctuary of understated glamour beside one of Miami’s most luxurious and historic dog-friendly hotels. Let your pup walk in the paw prints of Hollywood starlets’ pets of the past. You’ll enjoy brunch, mimosas, and a chance to win a two-night stay for two (pets allowed) in an Oceanfront king room at the Raleigh. He’ll enjoy canine competition, professional dog massages, and, of course, a doggy bag. Bid on auction items including a pet portrait by a local artist while your four-legged friend tries to win contests such as “Cutest Puppy Face.” Tickets cost $55. Reservations are required, so call 305-375-5356 or e-mail [email protected]
