Once again, the weather cooperated and we had a beautiful evening for the event on Aug. 18 behind Lund Care Center on the Concordia at Cabot campus. Close to 175 residents, staff and community members showed up to watch the 20 dogs put on their best show… or, at the very least, look cute while their owners tried desperately to get them to do a trick.
Congratulations to the winner in each category!
- Best Groomed – Bella (Golden Retriever)
- Most Friendly – Molly (Pembroke Corgi)
- Best Performer – Foxy (Chow Mix)
- Most Obedient – Zoe (Poodle/King Charles Cavalier Mix)
As part of the festivities, a special memorial was held for Ike, a therapy dog who has been visiting Concordia residents for years, who passed away recently. Ike was known for, among other things, his fun outfits at this event and for being the sweetest, most gentle giant around (he was a Bullmastiff). Special thanks to the Cabot Personal Care and Skilled Nursing Activities departments and their volunteers for putting on this fun event, and our resident judges for picking the winners!
