Benefit to be Saturday
Proceeds from an annual dog show set for Saturday will benefit the local dog park, organizers said.
The All Breed Dog Show at Rotary Dog Park, 930 N. Gateway Drive, will begin with a pet contest for the best costume, cutest, ugliest and owner look-alike at 11 a.m. All breeds and sizes will be allowed to enter for a $5 fee, said event organizer Michelle Swengel.
“We want people to understand that this event is about family involvement and owner education,” she said. “We strongly encourage spayed and neutered pets to compete, where a lot of other registries don’t do that.”
The dog show will follow. Competing dogs will be categorized by age group, Swengel said. Canines under two years old may compete in the puppy group, while those older than two will be judged as adults, she said...
