Woofstock 2012


Bentley and I went to WOOFSTOCK today and we had a blast!! 



Woofstock is the largest festival for dogs in North America.  This magnificent event is held in Toronto's very own St. Lawrence Market.  All of the neighbourhood streets are closed to vehicular traffic and taken over by over 300,000 visitors and their canine babies over the two-day street party!





Sadly, our previous home was really too far for us to attend Woofstock in past years, but now that we are back downtown, we simply had to go!  As we all know - in doggy world - you really aren't Top Dog unless and until you've been to Woofstock!

So today was a whole lists of firsts for both Bentley and I.  In addition to our first time at the festival, it was Bentley's first time on a Streetcar!  I knew it would be great, as Bentley just adores a car-ride ... and what is a Streetcar but a really BIG car filled with people and other dogs to socialize with?!?!

Also, today was the first time in 10 years since I have been on the TTC!  I've got to say that not much has changed about it!

Anyhow....



Bentley had a blast!  We visited the endless rows of exhibit tents .. and Bentley made about 25,000 friends! LOL  Here's my guy making a new bud now while chilling out in the fountains.  Totally refreshing on such a hot day as today,, with humidex readings hitting the mid-30's!



Did I mention it was hot??  LOL  A lovely lady offered to snap a pic of Bentley and I as he got out of the fountain.

After exploring all of the tents and watching the Dog Trick Show, and took in some Renascence Dancing ... we bought some pig legs and got us both some refreshing water, then headed back home.

It was a long day.  It was REALLY hot.  It was crowded.  But it was also, Fun ... Entertaining ... A MUST Attend!

Thousands of dogs everywhere - and if you know me, you know that I probably enjoyed this beautiful day as much if not more than my Bentley did!

:-)

Thanks for the memories Woofstock!  We'll c'ya next year!!
