Atlanta Botanical Garden Opens its Doors to the Dogs for Annual Reindog Parade!

If you want to take your pup to the Atlanta Botanical Garden, this Saturday is the day to do it! Once a year, the Garden opens its gates to the dogs for the Reindog Parade, a competition for prizes and a chance to enjoy the Holidays in the Garden.  Cosmo and I plan to be there and we hope we get the chance to meet Victoria Stilwell, host of this year's event and celebrity dog trainer of Animal Planet's "It's Me or the Dog."

Pre-registration has ended, but the Garden will be accepting walk-ups. Here's all you need to know!

Reindog Parade

Date: December 11
Time: 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. 

Registration begins at 10:30 a.m. 

Join the once-a-year fun of dogs in the Garden! Dress your pooch in holiday finery to compete for prizes or to just show off. Also, connect with local canine enthusiasts and businesses in the Doggie Expo.

Dogs compete in the following categories:
Best Dog-Owner Look-Alike
Best Botanical
Best Puppy (under 2 years)
Best Senior (older than 10 years)
Best Dog Pack
Not competing -- just showing off

Get more information here.

Here's a few photos from past Reindog Parades. We went last year and the costumes were a hoot! Some people go all out, but you can enjoy the fun no matter what you wear!
