L.V. Puppy Bowl Contender: Keno

Honorary Fire Hydrant Dedication | Las Vegas City Hall | January 28, 2015 | 1:30 P.M.

I am not a huge fan of watching televised football (except for the viewing parties where I consume my weight in Flamin’ Hot Cheetos). However, tuning in to the Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet really sparks my fancy. Hearing that a Nevada SPCA foster puppy named Keno was representing us, I had to get within petting distance. Mayor Carolyn Goodman walked out with two “showgirl” puppies and presented Keno with a fire hydrant directly outside City Hall. Keno refused to christen it in front of all the spectators, and instead lay down next to it to chew on a delicious bone. Looking at how happy he was in his new owners’ arms, it was hard to believe that this little pup and his brother were left in the lobby of the Nevada SPCA in a dirty cardboard box.
