Furry family members invited to Copiah County Dog Show

Kick off spring with a fun event for the whole family – even the furry family members.  Join the Brookhaven Animal Rescue League (BARL) volunteers at the 2nd Annual Copiah County Dog Show.

Pooches of all shapes, sizes and talents are invited to join the fun on Saturday, April 17th at the beautiful Chautauqua Park in Crystal Springs.

Dogs will be salivating for all the prizes being awarded at the show.  Competition categories include the following:  Best Dressed, Cutest, Most Talented, Ugliest (not that any dogs are ugly), Largest, Smallest, Most Vocal, and Dog/Owner Look-A-Like.  Categories also include Obedience (sit, down, stay, come and heel); and, Agility (hurdles, a-frame, low crawl, weave poles and broad jump).

The event will include food, drinks and shopping opportunities with the actual dog show beginning at 12 noon.
