Ladies of the Elks 11th Annual Dog Show

KRV Ladies of the Elks

Is your favorite canine companion the cutest in the valley? Or is it the furriest? Does it have the longest nose, or maybe the shortest tail?

The Kern River Valley Ladies of the Elks are hosting their 11th annual Dog Show at the Elks’ Picnic Area behind the Elks’ Lodge, 6708 Wofford Blvd., in Wofford Heights, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 22. The public (and pooches) are welcome. Registration begins at 10 a.m. inside the gate. Proceeds from this show support the Kern River Valley Elks’ No. 2358 scholarship fund.

Barbecued hot dogs and hamburgers will be available throughout the show. Dogs will be judged in multiple categories from “cutest” to “most spots,” with the winners receiving a beautiful rosette ribbon, sponsored by MGM Jewelry & Loans, Inc. There is a $5 entry fee per every three categories entered. A trophy, sponsored by the Kernville Animal Hospital, will be awarded to the “Best of Show.”

Feel free to bribe the judges at any time before or during the show. Multiple bribes are welcome. (Bribing after the show is pointless, but still allowed.) The prizes, according to show co-chair Pat Terrell, “are dog-gone great!”

For the protection of all participants, please make sure your dog has up-to-date vaccinations. Dogs displaying aggression will not be permitted to participate.
