The CNE is back and as always when the CNE is in town, access to Toronto Animal Services is tricky. This year, from what I hear, though you might want to confirm this if you are thinking about going in, the animals aren't being transferred out and there will be limited access to the facility for adoption meet and greets and pick-ups. This might change so call before heading out.
And if you do go and decide to stroll the CNE as well, I hear you should try out the Krispy Kreme donut hamburger: a greasy, smashed burger, factory cheese, some token lettuce and tomato between two KK donuts.
If you do get one, you might want to run ten k with your dog before you eat again so you don't get a heart attack the next morning.
