Barkside’s Howl-O-Ween a Spooky Success

The second annual Barkside Howl-O-Ween transformed pampered pooches into haunted hounds over the weekend, in an effort to raise money for the proposed Fernie Off Leash Dog Park. This year’s event took place on Saturday, October 26.

Pet owners dressed their furry friends in various outfits and enjoyed hot chocolate while Kyle Hamilton Photography donated their services to create spooky scenes. Donations accepted in return for the photos will help to make the new dog park a reality. Maren Esch, the owner of Barkside, created the event with her staff to allow owners to have a bit of fun while contributing to a worthwhile cause.

Nova, a French Bulldog, and her best friend Macklin, an English Bulldog, were dressed as a witch and a skeleton, respectively. Their pals Biddy Boo (dressed as a fairy) and Gusto (a cow) joined them in their photo shoot, although getting all four to stay still proved to be a challenge.

Local businesses donated prizes for best dressed and best family theme, as well as refreshments and treats for both canine and human participants.
