It was a howling good time at Dogoween!

Once again, Venice’s biggest doggie mixer of the year was a smash!

The four legged fur babies came out en masse, with their parents in tow, to participate in an afternoon of costumes, Hungry Dawgs treats, music and fun.

Venice Paparazzi rolled out the red carpet for a talent stacked costume contest in which the top three in each category: funniest, best family, best in show, and most creative, were awarded prizes.

The contest was judged a well qualified panel comprised of Cody Decker of Bruno’s, Anja Skodda of Happy Again Pet,  Jamie Sol Black of Rock & Roll Doggy, and was emceed by Venice Paparazzi‘s Alex Stowell.

The winners of the costume contest:

  • Best Family: 1.Popeye family, 2. Jaws family, 3. Santa family
  • Most Creative: 1. Chick magnet, 2. President, 3. Avocado toast
  • Best in Show: 1. Pope, 2. 101 Dalmatians, 3.Trojan warrior
  • Funniest: 1. Mary had a little lamb, 2. Chupacabra, 3. Soccer ball
