A party was held in Montreal on September 11, and this one went straight to the dogs.

The event, called "Le Happy Corgi Party," was hosted by YATAI MTL as part of the city's first Shoni Market, a celebration of Asian cuisine that offered Montrealers samples of delicious street fare from about 30 different kiosks.

Over 150 corgis and various other pooches and their owners gathered in Ernest Cormier Esplanade park to mix, mingle and chase some (admittedly short) tail, explained YATAI MTL's Thien Vu Dang.

Cuteness overload was evident as the corgis — an allegedly enchanted herding breed that fairy folk would use to pull their tiny carriages and ride adorably into battle, according to legend and the American Kennel Club — did their thing.

To keep the event exclusive, participants had to preregister online and guests were only informed of the meeting place a few days in advance.

YATAI MTL, which launched the pooch party after successfully hosting a Shiba Inu gathering in June as part of Montreal's first-ever Japan Week celebrations, has been making a name for itself with its dog party promotions.

In fact, it's already preparing a corgi party for 2022 and prospective guests are invited to submit ideas for the affair online.
