A Lot of Tails Wagging at First Brooklyn Heights Dog Show: UPDATED With Winners!

(UPDATED: See below for all winners.)
The first-ever Brooklyn Heights Dog Show was hosted yesterday by the Brooklyn Heights Association on Montague Street, which was closed to cars and filled with fun activities as part of the last Summer Space of the season.

There were roughly 60 local dogs competing in such categories as "Best Tail Wagging," "Most Affectionate," "Best Look Alike (dogs and their owners)," "Most Obedient," and "Least Obedient." The winners of each class competed for "Brooklyn Heights Top Dog."

Here's a man who thinks he looks like his dog. He appeared to be a favorite to win the Look Alike category until this next dog/owner combo (shown immediately below) appeared.

This pair were instant winners.

Brooklyn Heights Association's Judy Stanton (center with hat), handed out ribbons.

The judging table steadfastly refused all bribes.

A great time was had by all, and the dogs received treat bags from Pets Emporium, Perfect Paws and Rocco & Jezebel for Pets. The Top Dog's owner received a gift basket from City Chemist.
