Pups in their holiday best help put a jingle in Food Bank coffers
CBC's Turkey Drive campaign takes over Doggy Style Deli in Edmonton
To howls of laughter from the panel of judges, mutts dressed in their holiday best hit the dog walk Saturday in a CBC Edmonton-sponsored fundraiser for the Edmonton Food Bank.
The annual Turkey Drive campaign took over the Doggy Style Deli, at 15131 Stony Plain Road, for a Howliday Party designed for dogs and the people who love them.
Lured by special dog-friendly treats, the contestants were introduced by Edmonton AM's Mark Connolly then jingled their way down the runway as the judges — Radio Active host Adrienne Pan and Our Edmonton's Adrienne Lamb — watched in approval.
Watch: Edmonton pups hit the dog walk
The winning pooch was Kaiser.
