Woofstock 2013: a barking affair

Toronto is home every year to North America’s Largest Festival For Dogs, Woofstock.

We were expecting to host our good friend Marley – (a beloved Hungarian Puli from Staunton, Virginia) (see his Facebook page here) – this year for the festival, but a last minute thing prevented his parents to make the trip to Toronto.

This was sad because Marley was to meet his brother Linus for the first time.

We went to Woofstock 2013 anyway, and we had a nice surprise.

  1. Excellent surprise! Reading your blog made me feel like we were there! Thank you! But we need to make it there next year!!!
    Linus, you look great, no doubt you’re Marley’s brother!

  2. Wow! Your dog is really cool! I never saw this breed before, but I understand why one is called Marley. 🙂 It’s good to see someone else had fun at Woofstock, we were also there with our two Frenchies, Clark & Kent and it was awesome. My friend took some great photos , that really depict the amazing atmosphere that was there. All those puppies happily running around, what can be more cheerful? Can’t wait for next year.
