If you were in need of a mid-winter pick-me-up after a January that felt like it lasted a lifetime, folks in Camden had the remedy on Saturday: dozens of dogs strutting their best winter — and some not-so-winter — looks down the catwalk.
The “Dog Days of Winter” fashion show was part of Camden’s Winterfest, a weeklong series of winter-themed events that culminates next weekend with the 30th annual U.S. National Toboggan Championships at the Camden Snow Bowl.
The good boys and girls were of all breeds and sizes, wearing everything from fishermen’s sweaters and scarves to Hawaiian shirts and tutus. Despite gloomy skies and a light drizzle, the fashionable dogs kept spirits high.
“We just moved here from San Diego and we were preparing to stay inside all winter, but Camden has all these awesome things that are outside. We were excited to get out and about, even though we don’t typically dress our dog up. Though, my daughter would love to dress Minnie up all the time,” said one Camden resident whose daughter was walking their dog, Minnie, in the fashion show.
Here are some of the looks sported at the show.
