The 4th annual Winter Paws Dog Show has been scheduled for Sunday, January 29th, 2012, as part of Blowing Rock’s Winterfest celebrations. The event is co-sponsored by The Pet Place at the Shops at Shadowline in Boone and the Watauga Humane Society, to benefit the homeless animals in our community. The show, which begins at 1:30 pm, will be held in the gymnasium of Blowing Rock Elementary School, 165 Morris Street in downtown Blowing Rock. An afternoon of light-hearted competition and canine fun has been planned, with ribbons and prizes to be awarded in ten categories, including Owner/Dog Look-Alike, Best Handshake, Most Mysterious Heritage, Most EAR-ristible Ears, Best Smile, etc. Winners from each category will go on to compete for the title of The People’s Choice Award with the grand prize of a $50 gift certificate to The Pet Place. The Humane Society plans on showcasing several shelter dogs currently available for adoption, and the event will also include a raffle for a one-year supply of dog food. Registration begins at 12:45 pm, and all dogs must be on a leash and current with rabies vaccinations. A registration fee of $10 allows participation in two categories of choice, while a $15 registration fee entitles participation in any or all ten prize categories. Free samples of dog food and free doggie treats are provided with each registration. Visit the Winterfest website at for full details, or phone Ellen Jo at 828.264.6468.
