Calling all Labs, huskies, poodles, doodles and Dobies because Fancy Schmancy is hosting Jamaica Plain's first-ever Puppy Bowl on Saturday! Before the big game on Sunday, and the actual televised Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet, bring your canine to Fancy Schmancy (606 Centre St.) for the party. There will be lots of snacks (for dogs), prizes and a winner (not human) for each quarter -- and there will also be a halftime show! It costs $5 for each dog to be in the bowl. The bowl is from noon to 2 pm.

It's not every day you see tacos, cowboys, spiders and Chewbacca strutting down the red carpet. But that's exactly what happened at Jamaica Plain’s 14th Annual Dog Parade on Saturday. The parade started at the First Baptist Church on Centre Street and finishes at the South Street Mall (corner of South Street and Carolina Avenue) with a fashion show judged by emcee Brad Brown of Blue Frog Bakery. The event was sponsored by the JP Business and Professional Association (BAPA) and JP Centre/South Main Streets. The following photos were provided by Sacred Harbor Photography.
