Have you ever entered your pet into a competition?
Maybe it was a photo competition or a showing competitions or something else. I've entered a picture of my own cat into a current competition to appear on a calender.
I entered my dog in the "Mut Derby" at the greyhound track in Tampa when I was a kid. He was too busy running around with the other dogs to focus on the race. We were screaming our heads off, but he took his sweet time.
Not my current pet, though I used to show my dog, cats and rabbits in 4-H. My dog went the furthest with it, and we did showmanship, obedience and agility for eight years.
I don't think either of my dogs would far very well in any sort of competition involving showing where they would be around other dogs...they are far too playful and energetic. And I also like letting them be dogs...I feel sad watching lots of the dog shows out there where the dogs are essentially behaving like trained robots. I think either of them would fare well in a photo competition though (though I have never entered them in a competition like that), because they're adorable. But of course I'm biased!
I took my two dogs I use to have to a Halloween event at Pet Quarters. There was costume judging and pictures taken. I dressed them as Raggedy Ann and Andy totally homemade costumes complete with the red yarn hair. My Australian Shepherd was Raggedy Ann she had a blue print dress, white apron and bloomers. My Spaniel was Andy he had blue pants, a white shirt, and vest and bow tie that matched Raggedy Ann's dress. Then won 1st prize. They were such a cute pair my shepherd was so big and my spaniel so small.

I have a german-shepard/huskey mix and I adore her. What do you love about your dog or cat or whatever pet you have?
