Who's the top dog in Winooski?
A canine competition aimed to figure that out.
This was the first annual dog show to raise money for the organization, Winooski Downtown, which strives to make the onion city a great place to live, work, and do business. Pups and their owners strutted their stuff in front of hundreds of spectators, to win prizes for cutest, best costume, best trick, sheds the most, looks most like their human, and worst breath. The last category fell to the Mayor to decide. About 40 dogs entered. Hundreds of dollars were raised for the organization. And Channel 3's Darren Perron, a dog lover himself, emceed the contest.
