Categories: Pets in Photos

Mattie fucking loves golf, you guys.

The icepocalypse is seemingly on its way out. While it was no joke for a lot of people, for some it was an excuse to frolic in the ice with their confused pets, some of whom seemed deeply unsure about the sudden white coating everything had received. We asked Twitter to send us photos of befuddled mutts.

See. We're no liars.

Saturday morning's temperature drop and scattered showers couldn't keep hundreds of costumed dogs or their P1 owners home. Fort Worth's new Coyote Drive-In movie park and patio hosted 1310 The Ticket's annual Dogtoberfest, the Marconi Award-winning sport station's annual celebration of the "good good puppy dog."

In addition to impressive demonstrations by Southlake-based training company K-9 Direction and goody bags from a variety of participants, pets and their owners competed in a Look-a-like Contest, Stupid Pet Tricks and the Doggie Costume Contest.

One afternoon a year, Dallas hands over the keys to the Cotton Bowl, permitting the space to transform into a massive dog park. At Dog Bowl, every canine want is met: there are kiddie pools for soaking, vendors handing out healthy treats, and hundreds of wagging tails, all waiting to be sniffed. Yes, it's adorable.

We sent photographer Bianca Montes to scratch many bellies and capture the afternoon in photos. She did both. And now, to start your Monday morning off properly, here's our ten favorites from her collection of Dog Bowl 2013 pictures. (Can't get enough? No problem. See the entire slideshow here.)
