State of play: San Antonio is less than a month away from its biggest celebration.

  • The Fiesta Commission marked the quickly approaching social calendar last week with a media day attended by Fiesta royalty, including King Anbarkio Scout and her King Anbarkio in Waiting, Bacon (both pups are female).

Between the lines: Scout and Bacon represent Therapy Animals of San Antonio, a nonprofit that provides support throughout the community.

  • Scout volunteers at children's literacy groups, the Bexar County Courthouse and special events. She and her human, Christine Golub, also serve on the Crisis Animal Response Team.
  • Bacon and her human, Chris Puckett, spend their extra time at Methodist Texsan and Methodist Children's hospitals. They're also part of the Crisis Animal Response Team.

What's next: Meet Scout, Bacon and their friends at the Fiesta Pooch Parade, which is the group's biggest fundraiser and an official Fiesta event, on April 27.

The bottom line: Fiesta is furr everybody.
