Tails were wagging in White Rock Sunday afternoon.

Dog owners paraded from Memorial Park to the white rock to celebrate a bylaw change that now allows leashed dogs on the promenade during the off season.

The ‘Pooch Parade’ attracted about 30-40 dogs and their owners.

One of the notable four-legged participants was Mr. Bentley, a celebrity dog of sorts that has collected more than 340,000 followers on Instagram.

Event organizer Kim Sanderson told Peace Arch News that Mr. Bentley, who has been photographed with Hollywood A-listers and models, was named the parade marshal.

After reaching the white rock, dogs – and their owners – gathered for a photograph.

During the day, the City of White Rock set up a dog information booth in front of the museum, and had a bylaw officer monitoring the pier.

Dogs are allowed on the promenade from Oct. 1 to March 31, however, dogs are still prohibited from being on the pier.
