Dogs, everywhere! Some in tutus, some dressed as Lady Gaga, some carrying status bags. No, this is not the sign of the a-paw-calypse (ha?), but it does mean that anyone with a severe pet allergy will want to stay far away from Front Street’s Berczy Park from June 11 to 12, when the annual Woofstock puppy parade comes to town. We wish we were joking, but this year there will be a puppy fashion show akin to Canada’s Next Top Model, and there will be dog model scouts roaming the grounds looking for the next Alpo dog, Lassie or Beethoven. The event’s promoters suggest bringing a brief pitch to describe the qualities that make a dog worthy of the title, but we’re mostly excited for the cute dog watching, and maybe a Toddlers and Tiaras stage mom or two.
