Lake Placid, NY–July 10, 2014–On Sunday, July 6, the Lake Placid Horse Shows hosted their 22nd Annual Doggie Costume Contest, a popular competition at the show. All people with leashed dogs in costume were admitted to the horse show free of charge, and the contestants from the horse show and the local community took center stage in a special ring set up near the horse show’s Richard M. Feldman Grand Prix Field. The contest co-sponsors, Animal Planet and The Brown Dog Café & Wine Bar, presented the awards to this year’s “top dogs.” All canine contestants went home with a special event bag of doggie treats! Rascal, a 4-year-old Shetland Sheepdog owned by Bruno Freeman of Bloomingdale, NY, took top honors as “China Dog.” Rascal received 4 scores of a perfect 10 with only one judge giving him an 8.5.
