Our Pet Cover Photo Contest!
When Bella Herrera was a toddler, she
suffered from allergies and her doctor suggested that she eat local honey to try and combat them. She liked honey in tea and her mom, Veronica, made a daily tea party a ritual. It stuck. Bella, then 5, loved tea and she shared her party with her English Bulldog, Bubba, shown here without his pinky finger raised in proper English etiquette. At 12, she still loves tea and her dog.
The votes were close for our pet and kid photo of the year. All entrants will get two free passes to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk and stay tuned for our infant photo contest in October.
