The third annual American Kennel Club "Meet the Breeds" event is coming up at the Javits Center this weekend, the weekend-long celebration of all things ridiculously cute. Photographer Katie Sokoler got a sneak peek of the adorableness yesterday, reporting back with a first look at sphynx cats dressed as princesses, chihuahuas with perfect manicures, and cairn terriers (aka Toto dogs) with their Wizard-ly owners.

Fun fact: some of the owners train their dogs in different languages, explaining that it's easier for the dogs to understand commands in a foreign language because when you're constantly speaking English, the commands get all mixed in with the other gibberish. So if you only speak to them in a different language, they're able to distinguish the different sounds. Amazing!
