Steve and I took our Miss Lulu Belle to the annual dog festival in Toronto. If you saw my last post, that was when Steve and I went, without Lulu, as we didn't have her at that time 3 yrs ago....but we told ourselves someday we'd be back and with a dog to call our own. I hope you enjoy the following photos of our fun filled day with only one snafu when Steve bought a hot dog with a hair in it...a bit too much protein in that one!! Yucky! I shared my hot dog (sans hair) with Lulu. We entered her in a photo contest for 'Canada's Next Top Dog' for a magazine cover.....which there is much tough FIerce competion. Some photos need to be clicked on for details, FYI.
It was quite busy, and this was a less crowded area. It stretched about at least5 blocks, where they closed off traffic.
This poodle was very chic with her pinkish dye job.
This smaller poodle had a cute do too....
and this little doxie had a sun visor and a ride.
I love this little pink pinafore on this chihuahua...so Paris Hilton! (you must click photo to see her painted nails!)
Lots of doggies had hair accessories...
or fun and fashionable harnesses, collars and bandanna's. I made Lulu's collar from a gold disco belt with hot glued fabric flowers. She quite a few compliments!
Lots of vendors selling doggie stuff including a lot of artwork.
Lulu tries to make friends with one of her own hound kind. Lulu is part basset herself.
This cutie is tuckered out...it is exhausting meeting lots of people and other canines!
Lulu was a bit shy of this two bassets and tried to hide behind me.
Dogs were everywhere...even dogs on top of other dogs!
The festival also had lots of various breed rescue organizations trying to find homes like these beagles resting in a shady parkette. I sure hope they find good ones!
This bloodhound was quite vocal!
Lulu resting in the parkette...she needed lots of breaks since it was an overwhelming experience for her. I think she is wishing to go to the dog park instead...she prefers the conservation area to the big city.
Lots of dogs and folks resting in the park.
This English Bulldog is showing his British heritage. (click photo to see)
Lulu (right) met lots of bassets and beagles, this one on the left looked a lot like her! She's being a bit anti-social.
As you can see...crowded!
There was even a fountain with bubbles for the dogs to get a complimentary bath and cool dip. Lulu would not go in...she is not fond of baths.
We got Lulu micro-chipped for a very low price at this booth where Peso the chihuahua was hanging out (and tongue too).
Lulu and Steve walking about. (It was hard to walk by those donut and ice cream trucks but i resisted).
This little daschund was so sweet in her pretty purple collar.
Some pooch's were sporting the latest sunglasses, pink framed coke bottle glasses...
and pink aviators....
This pom is stylin' in his shades.
Lulu makes a new friend....
This English bully is matching his owners' attire....and she is def a bulldog lover...check out her back tat. (click to see close-up of tattoo)
This was the very last pooch we met...Cherry a 3 month old red poodle...so cute!
Lulu (on her way home) looks happy (probably because she was going home).
I definitely want to go next year, while Steve is not keen on the idea. I will have to ask Lulu if she wants to go again....I sure hope she does.
