Well this year’s Barktoberfest was quite a success
Many hoomans and their doggos came dressed to impress
We had Shrek, Fiona, and their little donkey too
The Nightmare Before Christmas was quite the spooky crew.
Gus’s Hot Dogs were delish and Little London hit the spot
A shortage on good brews from Cahaba there was not
Local vendors lined the patio with treats for pups and peeps
And two amazing artists drew caricatures for keeps.
The winners of the Stein Hoist held up their mugs the longest
Showing their opponents just who was the strongest
More than 50 dogs walked across the stage that night
Clothed in their pawsome costumes – it was quite the sight.
A big thanks to all the canines and their human counterparts
For coming to Barktoberfest ‘cause it was off the charts
Your support of Hand in Paw means we can serve more places
And bring lots more smiles to many different faces.
