These photos are from when Steve and I attended the annual dog fest 'Woofstock' (the largest festival for dogs in North America) in 2006, which is held in Toronto's St. Lawrence Market district. They close off a street for the canine festivities. Tomorrow we are taking Miss Lulu Belle, our sweet poochie, to the festival. I am thinking of entering her in The Mr. and Mrs. Canine Contest, to see if her cute face can win a prize.
They have other contests for 'Ugliest Dog' (which I find to be an oxymoron, since no dog is truly ugly) and there is also a contest for 'Best Tricks' and a fashion show of course. Miss Lulu will not be any of the those contests, since she is not ugly, nor can she do tricks and despises wearing clothes of any kind. I have tried, in the past to outfit her in an pink and brown arglye sweater, which she promptly tried to eat off her back. She even refused to wear an orange wig with witch hat at Hallowe'en. So, there it be, Lulu is not a clothes wearing dog, leave the outfits for chiahuaha's and other little frou frou pooches, like pugs and poms.
So, here are a few more photos from Woofstock 2006 for you to enjoy.
This Jack Russell cutie is giving me the eye...
I think this might be a Great Dane pup...with very beautiful markings and light eyes.
Cute little JT puppy getting lots of affection..
This basset, with impossibly long ears, is very sweet looking, with her yellow sun visor.
This Jack Russell is sporting a designer bandana...very fetching. (love that patch on his eye)
This English bully is enjoying a cool drink from his friend.
A English bulldog pup pup takes a sidewalk nap.
A Great Dane takes in the view of other pooches.
This chiuahaha mix (possibly mini pincher) with his styling booties, looked ever so silly trotting along, trying to walk as best he could.
One of my fave breeds, the dauchund, or weiner dog, looks so sweet in his little harness. I had to ask the owner if i could pet him.
And finally, this St. Bernard, (you must click on the photo to see him drooling) with a string of drool. He is looking at me, saying, 'C'mon lady, take the damn photo and get outta my way'.
I will be taking lots of photos tomorrow, no doubt, of tomorrow's Woofstock. Stay tuned for them in the coming days.
