Iván Pérez Ramírez, president of Bulldogs Mexicali, said that since the creation of the club 4 years ago they have held this type of meetings, with the intention of approaching to more people interested in these dogs. “The truth is that we have a great time, originally Mexicali was a city where the bulldog could not survive, due to the extreme heat during the Summer, so we made the group, to help people with tips and information,” he said. Since this breed of animals is very delicate, group members usually exchange information about the care and needs of bulldogs, with the intention of creating a support network among enthusiasts.

The festivities culminate on March 2 with the Cambodian Lantern Festival with which they illuminate the night sky. For the Association of the Chinese Community of Mexicali, it is important not to lose roots and strengthen ties with the local community, said Lenng Sin On, director of the Chinese Academy in the city.
