Water bowls were plentiful, and several volunteers paraded up an down the streets with large water barrels for the 4-legged guests of honour.
Only once did I see some un-cleaned-up-after doggie do.
The boys particularly enjoyed the Purina Pro Plan Dog Stars show (featuring dogs with skills that go beyond the familiar "jump up on the table and steal your jam toast" trick), and even Jasper seemed calmer than usual, amongst "his people" -- even went for a dip in the fountain (granted, it took a little coaxing, and of course, being a beagle, we had to keep him on his leash)! He also got his dew claws clipped, gratis, by a teenage volunteer at the first aid center.
There was something quite special about having the streets around St Lawrence Market closed to cars, and enjoying the neighbourhood while browsing countless booths of vendors, vets and dog-specific community service providers.
Admission to this event was free, and the treats were in abundance... for dogs, that is!
