West End Dog Show 2009

Comments 9 by Rebecca Bollwitt

We know Vancouver is one dog-crazy city. We have doggy bakeries, doggy spas, doggy beaches and plenty of doggy bags (in various forms). Turns out, we also have our own dog show as well.

    Please, please, please tell me this doesn’t coincide with that Fraser Valley Word thingy and that you want to come with me and your nephew Jordy.

    @ Keira – um yeah it does coincide with WordCamp Fraser Valley (where both Rebecca and I will be speaking) 🙂 but I’m sure something can be arranged!
