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!
