"Strut Your Mutt"

Humane Society will hold "Strut Your Mutt," a fun dog show, during Pioneer Days in Marlinton!

Sat., July 7, 2012

Pre-registration begins at 11 a.m. and the show starts at Noon in the parking lot behind The Pocahontas Times office on Main Street.

Classes include:

  • Person / dog look-alike
  • Most Original Costume
  • Best Trick
  • Most mysterious heritage
  • Best vocal performance
  • Best tail wagging
  • Most obedient
  • Least obedient
  • People's choice (All class winners are eligible - no entry fee required.)

  • Entry fee per class (except 9) is $4 per dog. Ribbons will be awarded for first through third place, and a cash prize for first place.

    This is the first year for Strut Your Mutt at Pioneer Days, although the event has been held in previous years at the Autumn Harvest Festival and Roadkill Cook-off with good participation, and lots of on-lookers get to vote on the People's Choice award. Some contestants go to a lot of effort to be the best look-alike or have the most original costume.
