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.
