When it was '21, it was a very weird year — and it seems the same can be said for '22, maybe more so. Yet here we all are, determined to make the best of it. And, for us here at New Times, the Best of it, as we proudly present this year's Best of Miami® issue, "Best in Show."
Of course, everyone has dreams of being top dog, but when it comes to IRL canines, everyone's dog is top dog, and every dog deserves a good life with a loving human companion. So alongside this year's playful theme, we're including a list of the South Florida dog-rescue organizations that toil year-round to match every homeless hound with a human best friend for life.
Oh, and we've also got picks for "Best Dog Food Store," "Best Dog Groomer," "Best Kennel," "Best Pet Supply Store," "Best Dog Park," and "Best Place to Dine With Dogs."
If you'll excuse us, we'll leave you to browse through our choices while we get to work on next year's edition. Have an early favorite? Share it with our staff at [email protected].
