The Canine Games 2012 Illustrated

The Canine Games by Nanae Kawahara.

Last Saturday east London hosted the very first Canine Games, a chaotic mishmash of dog parade, craft stalls and musical entertainment. Due to the recent heavy rain it was decided to host the doggy counterpart to the Olympics inside the Bethnal Green Working Mens Club - a decision that soon became rather difficult to manage. Just think dozens of slightly confused dogs in fancy dress and their owners all squashed into a tiny venue: the dog show just wasn't going to work within these four walls.
