Top Dogs Emerge At Soroptimists' Show


Captain, Trout, Macaroni, Missy and Roxy were the big winners at the annual "I Love My Dog" show sponsored by Soroptimist International of Zane Grey Country.

Each of the four took two top awards in the competition:


With a simple coat change, Victor Diaz was able to enter Captain 007 in multiple categories. Here, the black chow/lab makes a run at the Most Spots title.

  • Captain, a big black chow-lab mix, won the President's Choice trophy and took first place for Longest Coat. Captain owns Victor and Leticia Diaz.
  • Trout took Largest Dog honors, while also outdueling the competition to take first for Weirdest Bark. Trout runs Mikayla Johnson ragged.
  • Macaroni, a something-or-other that leads Tyler McClanahan, won the Obstacle Course trophy and took first for Most Spots.
  • Missy, who handles Elizabeth Romberger, was named People's Choice. Romberger took the Junior Handler -- Girl title.
  • Roxy, an apricot poodle who jumps all over Nieca Irwin, used her leaping ability to take first place for Best Trick. Roxy also took first place in the Obstacle Course.

Best of Show honors went to Mattie, a border collie mix, who brought Haley Stevens to the competition.
