Annual Dog Show at Atria Seville
Posted on May 27, 2014 by Taylor Rhea
Westminster Kennel Club has nothing on Atria Seville. The community hosts an annual Dog Day Afternoon Dog Show, a unique event that gives owners a chance to show off their four-legged friends.
Jill Biondo, the community’s Engage Life Director, reports that the number of pets at the community is at an all-time high, with more than a dozen dogs and a large number of cats. “The residents love their four-legged roomies!” said Jill.
The pets strutted down the “dogwalk” in puppy attire and the staff distributed awards for “Top Dog,” “Queen of the Canines,” “Cutest,” “Most Athletic” and “Furriest.”
A five-year-old Springer Spaniel named Choco won the “Top Dog” award. He is pictured with his proud owner, David B. in the above photo.
Pinky, a 10-year-old West Highland Terrier posed with her owner, Barbara B., after being named “Queen of the Canines.”
In addition to the dog show, a group of local veterinarians educated residents with a presentation on Protecting Pets Using Microchip IDs. It was a successful event; both the residents and staff are looking forward to next year’s show!
