SLO mayor gives Bixby the 'bone to the city'

San Luis Obispo Mayor Heidi Harmon gave Bixby the "bone" to the city on Tuesday, June 20, 2017. Bixby and her owner, Mike Minnick, have been biking around the country since 2013 to raise awareness for pet adoption. They first stopped in SLO in 2015, and Minnick says "there is zero doubt in my mind that Bixby wants to call the San Luis Obispo area home."
