Dogs get dirty, especially since the good ones aren’t forced to wear shoes and full track suits to protect their fur from the grass they like to run on. A local initiative, Paws for the Cause, has organized an event called “Paws Parklife” in Trinity Bellwoods Park on Saturday, July 16, where—for a suggested donation of $10—puppies can get pampered by a professional groomer. The goal of this afternoon (it runs from 11:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) is to raise funds to advance veterinary health care, which is a bonus really, since the instant payoff is a perfectly primped furball.

Rick Campanelli and Angie Smith will serve as hosts for the event, and it’s free to attend just to mingle with other canines (it is in a park after all). We think the idea of a puppy spa in the middle of a park is so cute, we decided to round up our favourite puppies taking baths in a gallery after the jump
