Essay contest winners visit Petco Park

If your pet decided that they needed a vacation from your house, where would you send them? These young Padres fans had a few great ideas, and it won them a trip to Petco.

Not only did they get to take in the ball game, but the essay winners got to sit in the dugout and stand on the field. Just no one tell the kid who would send his dog to Mars that he's probably not coming back.
