Things That Make You Say Woof

It's the canine society event of the season. The place to bark and be barked at. It's Woofstock, the largest outdoor festival for dogs in North America, and its taking over the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood this weekend.

Since Danforth Easters love their dogs, I'm sure many of us will be heading to our favourite pooch salons this week to spruce up our fur babies for the glamourama event- a crew cut and a pedicure included.

I usually take the little one to Barkingham Palace (at Linsmore), but I've just discovered a new place that I think is worth a try. It's called Doos For Dogs and it's at the corner of Gledhill and Danforth tucked in behind Relish (2 blks east of Woodbine). This doggy barber shop and spa opened quietly in March, so its relatively new. The owner Sandra has been catering to "little people in fur coats and their humans" for 26 years and finally decided to open her own space. What I liked about it right away is that it's all open concept. The dogs aren't hidden away behind glass or in another room. If you are so inclined, you can hang out and watch your 'precious' get buffed and trimmed right before your eyes!
