Event Results

Largest Dog David Spohn and Chaka were the hands down winners with Chaka weighing in at 125lbs! Chaka selected a $25 gift card from PetSmart.

Smallest Dog Tina Meeks and Dino won a $25 gift card from PetSmart. Dino, a miniature pincher, was too small to weigh, but stole all our hearts with his Batdog outfit!

Dog/Handler Lookalike Julia Harman and Jerry stole the show in their matching red outfits, complete with hair bows & collars! Jerry decided up a $25 gift card from Dick's Sporting Goods.

Best Trick The judges were really stumped with this contest, and had to award two prizes. Patricia Edkins and Jib were the winners with Jib's reverse walking trick. Becky Norman and Maggie came in a close second with Maggie's "I can beg forever" pose! Both Jib and Maggie won CARE tee shirts.

Best Retriever This contest was tough, so the judges once again decided to award two lucky winners. Jennifer Spohn and Matrix won first prize by retrieving 13 tennis balls from the pool. Dave Cohen and Ajax provided stiff competition and came in second with Ajax's 8 retrieved tennis balls. Matrix chose a $25 gift card from PetSmart and Ajax won a CARE tee shirt.

Best Dressed While all the contestants were styling and profiling in their outfits, Jamie Johnson and Cowboy took it away with Cowboy's fireman outfit. Cowboy won a CARE tee shirt for looking so handsome!

Cutest Dog By far the hardest contest to judge, so the judges asked for crowd approval. Five prizes were awarded, although all contestants are winners in our hearts!
1st place - Becky Norman and Sadie and Maggie. Sadie selected the flea product.
2nd place - Hannah Martin and Harvey. Harvey won the flea product.
3rd place - Amanda Clark and Hattie. Hattie also won the flea product.
4th place - Jen and Big Sandy. Big Sandy decided to be different and selected a calendar.
5th place - Martha Taylor and Abbie. Abbie selected a bag of gourmet dog food.
