Published 10:38 am Monday, November 21, 2022

Do you and your pet often get mistaken for twins? Are your hairstyle and your dog’s strikingly similar? Now is the time to see if you and your pet are up to fluff: put it up for a popular vote.

The first weekend in December will be a busy one in Vicksburg as Thanksgiving comes to a close and the holiday season officially begins.

Just after the annual Reindeer Run on Saturday, Dec. 3, merchants across Vicksburg will celebrate the “Paws Cause” by launching a day full of pet-friendly activities in historic downtown Vicksburg for friendly pets and their owners to attend and enjoy.
