The Surry Hills pub will be filled with pooches for one Sunday — and all bar profits will be donated to WIRES.

There are few greater, more indulgent and Instagrammable things to do than kicking back with a bubbly and judgementally watching dachshunds parade around in lifeguard costumes in a pub beer garden. Well, not on Sunday, February 23, anyway.

Back by popular demand (of course it is) for a special Mardi Gras edition, the dog show is taking over The Beresford's leafy courtyard with an afternoon of games, entertainment and a big ol' parade. Boutique dog store Dogue will be giving out prizes to the best performing pups, and there'll be a doggy market and a photo booth where you can get a family pic for free.

Bring along your own pooch (and enter them into Best in Show if they're agreeable) or just head along to nab some cuddles. The festivities kick off at 11am and — best of all — all profits from food and drinks made between then and 3pm will be donated to WIRES Wildlife Rescue.
