Celebrate the dog days of summer at Picnic With The Pets, a pet-friendly picnic at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden on July 5, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. This event offers an opportunity for the entire family to bring their canine friends for a celebration. Picnic With The Pets will transform the beautiful Miami Beach Botanical Garden into a pet-friendly picnic playground. Picnic With The Pets offers a variety of activities including leash-walking workshops with ABC certified dog trainer Rose Lesniak. Anastasia The Great, internationally renowned artist, will make a special appearance at the event and will be drawing sketches of pets for a donation to the Botanical Garden. Doggie Bag Café and G Girl Productions sponsors a Canine Fashion Show and Parade with prizes at 2 p.m. Miami Dade Animal Services and The Cat Network will be on hand to offer animal adoptions. Guests can bring a picnic lunch or purchase freshly grilled hotdogs or soy dogs for a picnic on the lawn. Krispy Kreme donuts will be sold for those with a sweet tooth.

Picnic With The Pets also offers pets and their owners an opportunity to be pampered. Beauty services will be available (by donation) from Haircuts by Anarkali, eyebrow threading by Brow Obsession, Makeup by Inglot, hairbrushes and styling by Anthony Battaglis, and skincare by Rodan & Fields. A shoppers’ bazaar will offer products for pets and their owners including jewelry by Josette Redworld and dog care products by Princess Oberle-Lopez Luxury Pet Line.

Picnic With The Pets features a variety of Children’s Events in the Art Activity Tent including Face-Painting, a booth for making their own homemade dog treats and an art table for crafting paper puppies. Slinky the Clown will entertain the children and create balloon animals.

Everyone is encouraged to bring your pets (leashed with current shots) to enjoy the activities. Dogs can show their owners love at the doggie kissing booth or cool off in the pool park. Doggies and their owners can create art at the paw-print station.

Picnic With The Pets sponsor Edward Oberle-Lopez will present socialite and philanthropist Claudine Smurfit a special Philanthropy Award during a ceremony at 1 p.m. with Ex-Vice Mayor Michael Gongora.

Internationally renowned artist Anastasia The Great will make a special appearance and present an exhibition of her artwork that will be displayed during the event.

Gift bags filled with beauty products and other treats will be given to attendees while supplies last. The event also includes a raffle offering a variety of prizes including Dog Baths from the Miami Animal Hospital.

Picnic With The Pets is a fundraiser started last year by Edward Oberle-Lopez in celebration of his dog Princess Oberle-Lopez for the Miami Beach Botanical Garden, the beautiful urban greenspace located in Miami Beach across from the Miami Beach Convention Center. The Garden was designed by South Florida landscape architect Raymond Jungles and showcases native Florida plants and trees including bromeliads, palms, cycads, and orchids. The Garden also includes a Japanese garden, native garden, bio-swale, and water gardens that include ponds, fountains, and a wetland with mangrove and pond apple trees.
