it wasn’t exactly the Westminster Dog Show, thank goodness! This was way more fun with lots less stress for the dogs and the owners. On Sunday, November 6th – 20 dogs along with their owners participated in Wintergreen Goes To The Dogs at the Tuckahoe Clubhouse in Stoney Creek. NCL Publisher Tommy Stafford was the Master of Ceremonies for the 2 hour event.

Dog show organizer David Hall along with participant and volunteer Cindy Byron hold up a Quill-O (combo pillow and pet blanket) that was auctioned off at Sunday afternoon's dog show in Stoney Creek.

The dog show is part of a fundraiser for both Wintergreen Performing Arts and Nelson’s Almost Home SPCA No Kill Shelter near Lovingston.

Several different sponsors kicked in to make the afternoon lots of fun with wine, food, and prizes for the winners!

Next year the show will be held again, coordinated by Nelson’s Almost Home SPCA.

Look for a link to more pictures on Wintergreen Performing Arts’ website by event photographer Marshall Faintich, soon.

Congrats to all of the winners!
