Dogs and their handlers filled Tappan Square Saturday to participate in the Annual Doggie Doo & Pooch Parade. More than 55 vendors set up to share information about training and taking care of your dog, selling dogs for adoption, and selling food and toys for your pet. Plenty of folks entered themselves and their pet into Doggie Idol, the Fur Family Fashion Contest, Dance Your Tail Off, Dapper Dogs, Oberlin’s Got Talent, and Coolest Canine competitions.
