Cleveland’s Next Top Dog-el

I’ve always thought my dog should be a model. I might have actually looked into dog modeling agencies at one point. He does get a lot of attention when I take him on walks, so of course it would only make sense that he should also be on the next box of Milkbone treats. I mean, look at this:

Look at that smizing! Fabio Hunter.

If you have thought similarly about your dog, this Sunday is your chance to dress him up so he can strut his stuff on the dogwalk. The Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter will be hosting “Paw-ject Runway” (the puns are just endless) a dog “modeling” contest where the top 12 dogs will be chosen to be featured in Dick Goddard’s Best Friends Medical Relief Calendar.

The $20 admission fee to enter your dog in the contest will go to the Best Friends Medical Relief Fund, which provides veterinary care for sick or injured shelter and rescue dogs. The admission fee also gives you access to the Mutt Strut and Mingle adoption event, a copy of the calendar, a pack walk through Whiskey Park and online voting for the calendar contest. You can register for the event here: http://cuyahogadogs.com/en-us/Paw-ject-Runway-Registration.aspx If you just want to go the adoption event and watch the calendar contest the admission fee is $5.

As if you needed more excitement, the event will also feature adoptable dogs from various rescue groups, drink specials, food trucks, celebrity guests and live music.

Can’t wait to see who will be the next top dog-el!
