Laguna Beach, CA, May 26, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Petey, who may arguably be the most famous English Bulldog in Laguna Beach, is celebrating his tenth birthday on Friday, May 27 with a very public Birthday party at his shop, Laguna Motor Werks, 1009 So Coast Hwy in Laguna Beach, CA. Petey, the "Shop Foreman," according to Vick Hausner, Laguna Motor Werks owner, certainly commands a huge following among residents and tourists alike. From his highly visible vantage point atop a Mercedes golf cart in front of his office, Petey meets and greets his adoring public all day like a Zen little Buddha, posing for pictures, videos, lots of petting and ear scratching with few complaints. This genial, mild-mannered bulldog, a great ambassador and much adored fixture in Laguna, is particularly popular with tourists, some from as far away as Japan, Russia, Germany, Sweden, and of course, England, many of whom return annually and seek out Petey to say just say, Hi. Videos of Petey have even surfaced on the web, posted by unknown fans. On behalf of fans everywhere, Petey, Happy Birthday, old chap.
