Down by the Tracks benefits the SPCA of Wake County (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) which is strange because the event encourages dressing your dog up in a costume which seems in some regards – pretty cruel. (Just kidding the costumed dogs are not at all embarrassed by their parents.) It is a great annual event that we go to and enjoy a beer truck that allows your cup to run over. Yes – Monday mornings after this event are slow going to say the least.

The pics that follow are mainly of the dogs since the event is all for them. The band was good and we stayed clear of buying things at the silent auction. Overall we had fun and I think that despite being disguised as a shark Princess had a great time too.
