Third annual dog show held at Holyoke High School

Posted: Updated:

Holyoke High School literally went to the dogs on Sunday.

The school was the site of the city's third annual dog show, which coincides with the annual Holyoke Winter Carnival.

Fifty dogs were entered in the event in 10 different categories.

Best in Show went to Glen Williams and his dog "Pepper."

They had placed first in the dog and owner look alike category.

Organizers told CBS 3 that the event has grown each year.

"We have about 50 or 60 dogs," said Teresa Shepard, director of the city's parks and recreation department. "Obviously we have a lot of members of the community who come just to watch the show, and we've also grown with the number of vendors and informational tables. I think because it's just fun, it's fun for all ages, as you can see, there's senior citizens here, there's young kids here, everybody has a good time."

Contestants paid $10 to register their dogs for the event.

The dogs had to be licensed and accompanied by people who were 14 and older.
