North America’s largest dog festival is going to take place this weekend!
On June 9 & 10, St. Lawrence Market will be taken over by the dogs of all shapes and sizes (and their owners, of course!) for the latest in pet apparel, nutrition and everything to do with your favourite 4-legged love.
This is the 5th annual Woofstock! Some of the things you will see
are fountains and wading pools with dogs jumping in and out, dogs in
bowties, dresses, shoes, sunglasses (doggles.com) and owners that bare
an uncanny resemblance to their pooch. The admission is free and
chaotic. If you are thinking of getting a dog, this is the perfect
place to talk to knowlegeable pet owners and see what having a dog is
attended last year with Jacob (my dog!) and found it a bit stressful
for both of us. This year, I will go with some friends but leave
Jacob at home. He will be sleeping just like in the photo above.
Though the festival is for dogs and dog lovers, any situation involving
200+ vendors with dog treats, thousands of people (and kids, eek!), and
dogs of all temperment – I highly recommend that you leave your dog at
home! Come with good walking shoes, a big bag (for all the samples
and goodies!) and a camera!
The festival runs from
10am-6pm, June 9 & 10. I will be most likely attending Sat around
3pm or Sunday morning. I can’t wait to feature to most best
‘doggie-style’ here on longoverdew.com!
