One day, in the not-so-distant future, perhaps Brisbanites will take their pet puppers with them everywhere. For now, we'll all just have to grab our four-legged best friends and head to another doggo market.

It's the trend that won't go away, and we'd all be barking mad if we wanted it to. More excuses to take energetic ol' Rufus places? More chances to go "awwwww" over other people's pooches? Count us in.

The returning Doggo Day Markets are the latest such event, taking over Virginia's VEND Marketplace between 8am–2pm on Saturday, April 1. The shindig's name also acts as your instructions, so round up your woofer and take them on an outing.

There's even a dress-up competition, as there usually is at these things. That's how adorable pups get even cuter.

Also on the agenda: doggy stalls, a dog play area, a dog wash, a dog photo booth, and corgi and dachshund races, plus the northside spot's general array of markets and greenery — and an ice cream truck (for humans), too.
