From poodles to pugs, dogs of all shapes and sizes were putting their best paws forward.

It’s all part of the annual McGuire Group’s Northgate Health Care Facility’s annual dog show. They have been holding the event for the past 9 years.



Prizes were awarded to dogs for best in show, best trick, best outfit and most obedient.

Organizers say that, win or lose, everyone always has a good time.

“We do this once a year,” said Sara Piazza, Activities Director, “and bringing dogs into the facility really brightens up our residents’ day. We enjoy getting the community involved and it is just a really fun tradition that we plan on keeping.”

From dancing to barking on command these four-legged friends put on quite a hublot replica watches

More than a dozen dogs took part in the event and judges say they had a hard time choosing winners.

For the residents of the facility it’s a one day event aimed at having a good time and improving their overall health.



“It’s beneficial to our residents because animals bring such joy to them,” said Judith Ogden, Contest Judge. “Whether it’s dogs, cats or goats, all that matters are the smiles it brings to our residents faces.

Next year they are hoping even more dogs and owners will participate.
