BHA’s Third-Annual Dog Show: And The Nine Winners Are…

The third-annual Brooklyn Heights Association Dog Show Sunday, held during the Montague Street Business Improvement District’s Summer Space event, certainly demonstrated the passion neighborhood residents have for their pooches. Before hundreds on onlookers, 63 dogs participated, with nine dogs crowned the 2012 victors in the following categories…

Finn, Best Treat Catcher; human companion: Rachel Epson
Wellington, Best Tail Wagger; companion Stacy Mankoff
Grace, Most Affectionate; companions AnneMarie Carley & Gerry Dempsey
Cassie, Coolest Ears; companion Roxanne Murray
Finn, Best Trick; companion Rachel Epson
Lulu, Cutest Small Dog; companion Liz Haney
Oulo, Cutest Medium Big Dog; companion Robert Edmonds
Chloe “Bear Bear”, Dog Who Most Likes the Judges; companion Nicole Gershon

The winning dogs in each category returned to the ring for the finale “Best in Show” category, which was determined by audience applause. And the grand prize went to… Finn.

The BHA Dog Show’s volunteer committee comprised Dick Dadey as Master of Ceremonies; and judges Derek Divine, Sara Graziano and Ashleigh Thompson. Stuffed treat bags were donated by Tom from Perfect Paws, Sami from Pet’s Emporium and Andrea from Rocco and Jezebel for Pets. The Watchtower provided stanchions used to create the dog show ring, Levy Lorenzo from Issue Project Room managed the sound system, and Ashley Kalmar was videographer (stand by for video).
