This event consists of a dog show, a rodent race for pet hamsters, a photo with your pet, and prizes for best pet costume, biggest/smallest dog, coolest pet trick and pet/owner look alike. Also, girls will have a chance to earn a badge: Brownies - Animal Try-It; Juniors - Pet Care Badge; Cadettes - Pet Interest Project (partial).
You must register in advance in order to attend this event. The pet show is open to Juniors or Cadettes and their pets only. However, any age may come and watch.

Many pet supply businesses will be on hand to demonstrate their products.
All proceeds will benefit the Buddy Foundation, a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter for abused and neglected dogs and cats.
