    FUN DOG SHOW 2022
    American Legion  
    98 Sunburst Highway, Cambridge, Maryland
    We are letting the dogs out October 22, 2022, at the American Legion, rain or shine.
    Show registration begins at 9 am to 2 pm with a Halloween costume theme for dogs and handlers.
    Our 2022 GRAND MARSHAL will be Laura King along with her poodles; Gracie, Briella and Teddy.    Laura owns Pretty Paws, a full-service dog grooming business at 503 Maryland Avenue, Cambridge. She has operated her grooming, day care and boarding business for nine years.  Laura has a staff of dedicated dog lovers, Michelle, Stephanie and Tyler who are loved by all the clients who don’t want to leave when they are done. Their slogan is, “A Place Your Pets Will Love To Come!” Everyone is in for a treat to see how the pups are groomed and costumed this year. Last year one of the poodles,Teddy, was a black and orange striped tiger. Laura told me some ideas for the dog costumes this year, but you have to come see them and be surprised. It will be amazing.
    The Halloween themed Fun Dog Show Grand Parade begins at 10 am and will have many categories of competition with the winners of all the categories qualifying for the Best of Show. First category entered is $5, all additional categories are $4.
    There will be food and raffles, and a photographer will be on site to photograph you and your pet.
