Fun Dog Show benefits causes

Posted

CAMBRIDGE - On Oct. 22, the Annual Fun Dog Show was held at a new location, American Legion Post 91 in Cambridge. The day was perfect for this fun, family event and many came to show off their precious pups. 

There was a new location, but traditions were in place with the opening starting with the Star Spangled Banner and the blessing of the dogs by Rev. Susie Leight.

Also, back to MC the event was Sen. Addie Eckardt, backed up by DJ James Thompson. Special guest Pinkie, the dynamic dog, was on hand to entertain and do tricks to spur on the fun.

Grand marshals and standard poodles Teddy, groomed as a giraffe, and Briella who was all in pink paws and ribbons in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, were handled by Laura King and her daughter, Stephanie. Laura and Stephanie are skilled groomers, pet trainers and pet day care providers at Laura’s Pretty Paws.

Organizers hosted 49 dogs in 123 category entries. All category winners were entered into the Best of Show. The winner of the overall show was the adorable “bully,” Mona Lisa, handled by Abravi-yon Todd.

Other special guests that participate each year include Pets on Wheels that was represented by Linda Aaron and Jax, a rescue from Puerto Rico, as well as Jerry Rollyson with Nettie, the Australian water dog.

These ladies donate an American Girl doll each year to raffle off. They are dedicated to Pets on Wheels, a group that helps children, by using dogs to learn to read, and visit adults in Pleasant Day Adult Care Center. Ms. Aaron is looking for volunteers to help with the reading program. Call her to help second graders at Wor-Wic Elementary learn to read by reading to your dog. Hurlock Library, Dorchester Library and Pleasant Day Adult Day Care are also part of the program. She can be reached at 443-521-7798, if you are interested in finding out more about this wonderful program.

Many thanks to Sue Todd, Robin Abbott, Charlie Kuehne, James, Sen. Eckardt, and the many volunteers who worked hard to make this event so much fun.

Some proceeds benefit the Bay Water Animal Rescue.
