Woofstock 2010 draws hundreds to Largo Central Park

None of the canines were old enough to remember the original Woodstock. However, that didn't stop groovy vibrations from floating through Largo Central Park on Saturday during Largo's 2010 Woofstock.

With the temperature hovering near 45 degrees, hundreds of dogs and their owners darted, jumped and rambled while checking out vendors, mugging for cameras and leaping for Frisbees.

There was the Golden Dog Bone Hunt, a demonstration by the Largo police canine unit and 40 vendors of pet-related products.

Included were dogs of all sorts: Terrier mixes raced high-spirited Labrador retrievers. Mutts lucky enough to have forever homes made fast friends with full-breed dogs, brought out by organizations such as Siberian Husky Rescue of Florida and Chihuahua Rescue and Transport.

As they departed, many of the pups had love beads around their necks.

One even had rose-colored glasses.

All were undoubtedly dreaming up ways to make sure their owners noted the date of next year's event.
