West End Dog Show 2009by
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.
What: The 2nd Annual West End Dog Show
Where: Nelson Park, 1030 Bute Street
When: Saturday, August 22, 2009, 11:00am – 4:00pm
More info: Website, Facebook
The West End Dog Show will feature a doggie fashion show, samples and swag, booths from local pet shops and veterinarians, a charity dog wash, food, and free events for your dog. The event donates 100% of its proceeds to a local animal-related charity each year. The 2009 event will benefit BC Guide Dog Services.
Nelson Park is one of over 30 off-leash public spaces in the City of Vancouver.

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.
I’m cheering for the underdog.
@ 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!
@Raul – Umm lucky for me she’s going to make something work. 😀
