PRESTONSBURG – It was all about the fur babies when the Prestonsburg High School girls’ basketball program held a Fun Dog Show on Saturday. Labradors, Yorkies, Labradoodles and Chihuahuas were a few breeds that competed in the competition.
The event, sponsored by the Prestonsburg High School girls’ basketball as a fundraiser, took place at the Archer Park Dog Park.
“It is a really fun time to come out and enjoy the weather, get the dog dressed up and spend some time being a good pet parent,” said Lisa Stumbo, of Prestonsburg.
Participants in the PHS Ladycats Fun Dog Show were able to compete in 10 different categories: Best Puppy (under one year), King of the Hills, Queen of the Hills, Best Rescue Dog, Best Veteran Dog (seven years and up), Waggiest Tail, Best Tricks, Best Costume, Best Doggie Eyes, and Dog the Judge Would Most Likely Take Home. Each category cost $5 to enter.
A total of $509 was raised for the Prestonsburg girls’ basketball program. Officials said the event was a success and hope to sponsor another next year.
