A sunny evening and more than forty pets made this year's Pet Show a great success. Participants included a bearded dragon, a chinchilla, a colorful, orange corn snake, and several breeds of cats; along with many pugs, labs, boxers and other dogs. Thank you to everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun!
