Christmas has gone to the dogs. And the dogs have gone strolling down the “catwalk.” Over 75 costumed canines took their turn on the red carpet Tuesday evening, during the Christmas Island Style Canine Christmas Parade at the Esplanade. The official judges, Wanda Day, Nellie Adams, and Neil Snyder, sat with notepads and wine glasses at hand, as emcee Stan Niemczyk called out the entrants and event organizer Wayne Purvis plus hundreds of spectators gathered round.
