Puppies and giant dogs alike were on parade this weekend in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood for Woofstock, and we spotted some adorable canines posing for glamour shots at the Paws for the Cause booth and walking the runway in a doggie fashion show. There were certainly many owners who dressed their little dudes and gals in completely ridiculous costumes, but at the heart of it all, it’s one of the biggest dog festivals in North America where dogs can kiss, nuzzle, jump, bark and play under the sun for hours and hours (unfortunately, we were there post-shower, so there was a faint smell of wet fur in the air).

    Unfortunatley there are owners who are not responsible when it comes to cleaning up after their pet…walking along Front St. in the aftermath is rather unpleasant in spots…

    I love dogs and think it is cruel and unusual punishment to dress dogs up like dolls especially in a heatwave!
