Chrissy #18 (Best Costume-1st Place) and Marty #19 (Best Dog/Owner Duo-2nd Place) want to thank all of the judges for their recognition! They had a wonderful time and look forward to future doggie parades in Avondale Estates and to the prospects for a dog park! The wonderful prizes weren't so bad either! Thanks to all of the sponsors of the event!!! The canine population of Avondale Estates is so fortunate to have such a wonderful offering of services available to them!
