Responsible Urbanites for Fido (RUFF) held its annual Dog Show at DeFilippo Park with many local North End residents competing in viewing the fun-filled event.
The four categories of competition included unique trick, look-alike, bring home the bacon and RUFF’s very own obstacle course.
Councilor Lydia Edwards and Dr. Graham (Back Bay vet) judged the look-alike and unique trick contests. Bring home the bacon and the obstacle course were decided by who finished first.
“It was a great time and turn out,” RUFF President Leslie Horn said.
