of peace & pups.

In the "it doesn't get much more Austin-y than that" department, I want to offer a shout-out to Woofstock at Waterloo, which will happen this Saturday, May 2nd, at Austin's Waterloo Park from 10a to 5p.

Austin is consistently among the top five most pet-friendly American cities, and has one of the top pets-per-capita counts. Combine our passion for pets with a Keep-It-Weird Woodstock-knockoff happening, and I suspect this new event will become a mainstay for the River City.

Anyway, Woofstock at Waterloo is a *FREE* daylong dog-friendly festival benefiting the Texas Veterinary Medical Foundation, a nonprofit charitable organization supporting animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. The canine-centric celebration will feature food and shopping booths, doggie wellness exams, pet care presentations, mongrel makeovers, costume contests, live music and much more.

So if you're in or close to Austin this weekend, be sure to bring your pooches to the park for some far-out furry fun!! And for further dog-friendliness around Austin, just click here.
