1 We brought Sophie down to Norwalk to compete in a dog show put on for the residents and to raise money for a local shelter at the memory care facility where Myra lives
2 Max and Sophie are entry #5
3 The fierce and unruly contestants waiting to parade in front of the judges
4 Waiting their turn
5 Sophie goes before the judging panel of five residents
6 After the judging panel, each dog has to make the rounds of the different "neighborhoods" where they can meet and greet the residents. Sophie immediately rolls over and shows her best side.
7 Some of the other competitors seem a bit better behaved
8 If we had only known there was going to be a costume contest we could have competed against Nurse Bulldog
9 Sophie gets awarded her medal for Cutest Dog!
10 Yeah Sophie!!
11 The winners photo lineup is even crazier. I should have switched to video mode since trying to get a half dozen dogs to pose at the same time was clearly impossible.
12 Sophie is so happy that she won Cutest God...
13 Oh, I guess mommy had the sign upside down, I only won Cutest Dog... oh well...
