Who Let the Dogs Out?

Parade day arrived and the morning was spent getting ready.  The the contestants put on their best and favorite costumes.  They woke their people, showered them, fed them, put them in their costumes and trotted them down to Tomkins Park.

The crowd came, the judges judged and the puppies paraded their people around the park.

As the contestants sashayed down the paths and around the park, the crowd took photos of the costumed contestants with their people.  The puppies would pose, smile and say thank you.  They didn’t really smile and say thank you, but they did sniff around for some kind of treat in the pockets of the picture takers.

This was such a fun event that words will not do it justice, so we’ll just let the pictures tell this story. 20171021 IMG_6096 7D crisscross

  1. Fantastic pictures!!! They really told the story for those of us (like myself) who were unable to attend! I am so sad to have missed this event for the THIRD year in a row (ugh!) but hopefully next year I’ll make my way over. The Rain Cloud and the Jockey were adorable!

  2. You two are very sweet for giving us that shout-out. Thank you! And this post has so many great pics! But how on earth did we have a chance meet up on a subway, but didn’t see each other when we attended the same parade?! 🙃
