Eli Wins Barkin' Beauty Pageant
"So there we were on a rainy Sunday in April, in a room packed full of dogs, dog owners, dog admirers, and dog industry professionals. We constantly looked at each other in disbelief as each pooch pranced down the runway, either in an activewear outfit, a glamourwear ensemble, or sporting an impressive (or unimpressive) talent. Dozens of cameras flashed as each dog was paraded. Everyone hooted and hollered and the winning dog’s owner almost cried with excitement.
Mr. Eli, the 4.8lb chihuahua was this year’s champion - and his saddle shoes, his angel wings, and his squeaky-bear-finding trick all contributed to the well-deserved victory. " - Stone Soup, May 2006
