On the weekend, we headed to Exhibition Place to ogle the puppies at the third Winter Woofstock festival. While there were plenty of dogs just there for a sniff-around—and to make sure their owners bought enough treats and toys for stocking stuffers—others were there to model some creative costumes. We loved, for instance, a dachshund disguised as a pile of leaves, a chubby Chicago Bull and one scrappy puppy anxious to escape his dinosaur get-up. We also spotted several holiday-themed ensembles, including a tiny Santa, several elves and not one but two handsome pooches looking dapper in scarves. We imagine the only ones not enthralled were the cleaning stuff, who were kept busy mopping up accidents.
