Dog Gone Dog Show winners listed

It was puppy love at first sight when Porter met Thumper at the Dog Gone Dog Show in Irvington last Saturday. The two exchanged kisses while being held by owners Dirk Mundt and Kimberlie Hensley. Porter is a seven-week-old English Chesapeake Labrador retriever and Thumper, a cavachon, is almost one year old. See more show photos in the print and e-Edition this week.
