Woofstock 2010

Calling all dog owners and lovers!  Woofstock is back this coming Saturday June 12th and Sunday June 13th at The St. Lawrence Market from 10-6 PM.  This outdoor festival is the largest of its kind for dogs in North America.  

We think it would be the perfect way to spend an afternoon.  Grab a warm Montreal-style bagel from St. Urbain Bagel and a fresh squeezed orange or grapefruit juice from Freshly Squeezed, inside the market.  Stroll all the booths and take pictures of all the cute dogs in costume....

A doggie-dedicated street festival and marketplace will take over most of Front Street.  Do make sure you stick around to catch the fashion show, stupid tricks contest and the Ms. and Mr. Canine Canada Pageant.  We heard that the bikini portion is very controversial this year (tee hee).  Admission is free and remember to BYOD (Bring Your Own Dog).

Hip + Urban Girl: Dolly Audit an industrial design grad from Carleton University and user interface designer has launched her very own line of dog clothing.  We love the hoodies and onesies with rock and roll angel wings, crosses and skulls that give your dog some serious street cred.  The collection features a line for boys and girls for your little prince or princess.  

Audit has worked under Karim Rashid, IBM and won the 2005 Bombay Sapphire designer glass competition.  The girl has mad skills and also designed the hug logo for us.  So if you are planning a visit to Woofstock next weekend.  Do stop by Threads for Pets and say hi to Dolly and her team for us!
