A day at the Gay Dog Walk

This morning's paper announced that there would be a Gay Dog Walk - to kick off Victoria's Gay Pride Week - so we packed up ourselves up into the car and headed down to Dallas Road. I managed to find a parking spot right next to the event, so mom was able to stay out of the pending rain and watch it all from the comfort of the car... while I got out and took pics.
This was the first dressed up cutie that looked up at me...
This doggie was not dressed up, but he had the most beautiful eyes....
This really was a BIIIIGGGG dog!
OK, this was a ferret, but I guess there was no ferret event... I hope he had fun.
This guy wore a purple bandana. Here he is getting a hug while getting a leash adjustment...
Never did get close to this, but we figured that it was doggies for adoption ;-)
Oh, heelllooo!!! Notice the matching colours of the dog's costumes and the owner's garb!
Everydoggie saying hello! Check out the backpack (you can click the pic to enlarge if you wish)...
Ready for sun.... and a good thing too, as the rain never came....
The parade part...
Hi you cutie! It really was a good dog's life today, these guys got lotsa love...
Managed to squeeze in and get a pic of these little princesses when they were being interviewed by a TV reporter...
Leaping through the hoop at the end of the doggie trick obstacle course route....
Tiny dancer! Or, should I say, tiny leaper?
Tiny leaper does the hoop!
This was the doggie wtih the awesome eyes. His owner had taught him a lot of cool tricks, which he loved to do. Got this one with him in the air.... and suddenly distracted by a baseball player dog going by during landing...
Sometimes all that is needed are some nice beads....
Coaxing a doggie into the tunnel at the start of the obstacle course....
A smart little scarf here....
My fav dressed up doggie of all....
Here's his rear profile with the full t-shirt message. The dog above is wearing a white halo, though it's a bit hard to see here.
It was a lot of fun all around...
