Howl for Dogtoberfest

BEAUFORT STREET’S letting the dogs out with a doggie market next Sunday October 4.

The area’s so deadly serious about its pooch culture (at the last council election just about every candidate pointed out they were a doggie person) the Beaufort Street Network’s turning the usual art market into Dogtoberfest.

The strange street even has its own “celebrity dogs” that everyone seems to know: network chair Pam Herron says “local stars like Grover, Riley, Jeffrey [and] Lola” will all be vying for best-looking dog, and there’ll be a doggie photographer, treats galore, a mobile wash for smelly pooches, and Rotoract’s raising funds for charity with a sausage sizzle (not sausage-dog sizzle, Ms Herron clarifies for those who might enjoy such exotic cuisine).

The non-profit art markets run the first Sunday of the month down at the Barlee Street corner.
