Antigua Dog Show 2014 Winners

Vega ArmstrongAntigua St. john's - The Antigua Dog Show 2014 was another success, with all proceeds raised going to the PAAWS animal shelter.  Founder Janie Easton was very happy with the turnout, and said, "We just wanted to be sure everyone had a good time, and they did."

The highly coveted, "Best in Show" was awarded to Kissy, a maltese mix owned by Vega Armstrong. Vega has been training her dog all year in the hope of taking Best in Show from Dan Devin, a rescue dog that has won the title three years in a row. Dan was third runner up this year. Second place went to Coco, a mixed breed dog owned by Lyn Pearce.

The highlight of the show is always the fancy dress section; this is by far the most popular class. After much deliberating over the final five, the judges turned to the public for help. The crowd's choice was Madison, a white Bijon mix selected with her Lady in Pink costume. The choice was controversial because a lot of people felt the first place position should have gone to Midgie and her handler - 8 year old Eleanor Knoblauch for their creative costume, Hula Girls.



First place prize for Friendliest Dog went to Cuppa, a rescue dog owned by Leticia Ned. Just months ago, Cuppa was an unwanted, emaciated, timid stray. Ned took him in and her love and care transformed him. A pedigree segment was introduce to the Dog Show this year by popular demand; first place went to Dodas, an American bulldog owned by St Clair. Special mention from the judges went to Rex the Akita for his immaculate grooming, personality, and consistency.

The show was made all the more special thanks to all the great prizes supplied by main sponsor Hutchinsons/Pedigree dog food. The Antigua Dog Show organisers also thanked  AS Bryden, Horizons, Bailey's Supermarket, Kennedy's, and Rubber Duck Recycling for their support.

The judges were Dr Fiona Francis, Dr Radcliffe Robbins, and Drs David and Linda Anderson.

Protect Antiguan Animals With A Smile

I believe that is what PAAWS stands for and that is what they have achieved. So more power to them! Even though I am not a dog lover, I hate animal cruelty and the sight of stray dogs.

You are so right we forget who we are and try everything that is not Antiguan. We are a country who need to go back to our roots.
