Northfield library goes to the dogs
Annual dog show Saturday
NORTHFIELD — The local library will hold a different kind of dog show Saturday.
“The Library Has Gone to the Dogs” will return for its fourth year from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Dickinson Memorial Library.
You won’t find the dog show categories of “best in breed.” Instead, dogs and their handlers will compete in a dozen offbeat categories, including most comical, best trick, most ear-resistable, and the dog-and-handler category “best look-alikes.”
Handlers will have a chance to brush up on proper grooming at 1:15. Before the show begins, Northfield’s own Meagan Senser and her business, NateMaeg Dog Grooming, will give a brief presentation on dog grooming.
While participants wait for the judges to deliberate, they’ll stroll down Main Street in a dog parade.
When they return, the judges will hand out ribbons to the winners, including the coveted best in show award, as well as the runners up.
The event is geared toward dogs and owners of all ages, and spectators are welcome to come enjoy the show for free.
Adult handlers can enter their dogs for $10, and children can enter their furry friends for $5. Proceeds will benefit the Friends of the Dickinson Memorial Library.
In the event of rain, the dog show will be held Sunday instead.
