It’s a Ruff, Ruff Life

Your Chihuahua has been extra twitchy lately. You’re not quite sure why, but you blame it on your TiVo’s recent demise. Your pup can no longer watch his favorite episodes of Dog Whisperer to unwind after long, stressful days. He really needs a vacation.

You can win your jittery mini-dog a week’s retreat at the luxurious Fur Seasons Pet Resort during Chihuahua in Paradise, today at Muvico Paradise 24 (15601 Sheridan St., Davie). The event is part contest, part pageant , but 100 percent Chihuahua. Pupparazzi will roam through the crowds, in search of the most photographic, blinged-out dog to win the grand prize: A week’s stay at the Fur Seasons Pet Resort in Stuart, a private portrait sitting, a Beverly Hills Chihuahua prize pack, assorted goodies, and a concession stand voucher (total prize is worth $650). Dress him however you like: A tiny Elvis, a miniature astronaut, or a hungover Spring Breaker (the last, while less adorable, might get pity votes). Even if you two don’t win the big prize you could still pick up all kinds of cool freebies. To register, submit a headshot of little Tito at Bring your own clean up bags, and no retractable or flexi leads are allowed. Call 954-680-3495.
