January 4, 2009 — Many Christmas and New Year’s Eve proposals took place in our land of sunshine at outdoor locales such as the Huntington Library, Disneyland, The Newport Beach Boat Parade, and along the coast at romantic spots in San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles. As couples were engaged with Robbins Brothers rings, a few of us “behind the scenes” at Robbins Brothers were treated to a sneak preview of the famous Natural Balance bulldogs as they practiced their snowboarding runs on the world’s longest float, just one day before the famous Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, California.

Congratulations to the Fiesta Team who designed so many gorgeous award-winning floats. And two paws up for Rosebud and her pink tutu, Tillman, and the other talented English Bulldogs.
