It was a dog’s day in San Francisco Tuesday as Frida, a Chihuahua mix, became the city’s honorary mayor for the day. The rescue dog got the job when her owner, Dean Clark, made a “healthy donation” to help San Francisco’s Animal Care & Control shelter. Attendees at the ACC’s 25 th anniversary fundraiser in September were able to bid on the mayoral prize. Frida was saluted during a meeting of the city’s Board of Supervisors before making an appearance on the steps of City Hall. She had a platform of mandatory belly rubs, and declared Tuesday Extra Pet Treats Day. Her owner is the chief executive officer of For the Love of Dog USA, which highlights rescue dogs. — Read it at the Los Angeles Times and meet other animal mayors from around the country
