Meet Paws in the Park Spokespet Elsa, a beautiful ridgeless ridgeback who lives in Escondido with her family, who bid on the rights to become Spokespet for 2011 at our annual Tails at Twilight gala. Elsa is an 80-pound lap dog, but she also enjoys her 5-mile walks. Her favorite foods are fish skins, carrots and blueberries, and her parents say she is the sweetest dog they’ve ever had. Elsa is super excited to lead the pack and show off her walking skills at Paws in the Park!
