Bethel dog show

One of the highlights of the canine world in Bethel is the dog show. Try to detect the sarcasm. It was actually good fun as Sadie + Erin entered their dog, Suka, in a few of the events.

A number of kids were out there with dogs, including the girl above and these two, all receiving good attention from the crowd + judges:

One of the high school teachers, Chandra (sp?) won a prize with her dog Rocky for best in show in the first half based on looks. He is a cute little husky-mix hiding behind her:

Suka then decided to come show us some of his tricks. Erin has been trying to teach him this routine for a while, and he actually did better than usual 😉 Just a touch of creative encouragement too (maybe turn up the sound):

And finally, only in Bethel, a pitbull dressed in a pink tutu + blonde wig with painted toenails (seriously…):

Fun couple of hours on a Sunday afternoon. Plus, Suka now has a whole year to practice after his rookie dog show performance!
