Canines donned tuxedos or pink party tutus to walk the red carpet at the Depot in downtown Minneapolis for the Whisker Whirl. Every pup in attendance — from the tiniest Chihuahuas to the greatest Great Danes — basked in the limelight with their humans. The event helps the Animal Humane Society provide a safe haven and medical treatments for animals, as well as outreach programs. The Whippet Whirl and the Rockweiler were among the favorite doggy-themed cocktails (sorry, pooches, for human consumption only).
