You'll be smiling from ear to ear at Toronto's Blue Monday puppy parks today.
This Monday won't be so blue after all thanks to some adorable pop-ups around the city.

Opening in four different locations around Toronto, the pop-ups will feature cheery white-picket fenced areas filled with tail-wagging furry friends.
