"Not Your Average Dog" Show

12:00AM / Tuesday, January 30, 2007

Dogs all kinds are welcome at the Berkshire Community College "Not Your Average Dog" show.
Pittsfield- Dogs of any breed or mix, with or without credentials, will have a chance to be the center of attention on Sunday, Feb. 11, during the Berkshire Community College Foundation’s sixth annual “Not Your Average Dog Show.”

Organizers specifically emphasize that the show is “not just for purebreds.”

The fun family-oriented event is scheduled from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the Paterson Field House on BCC’s main campus on West St. in Pittsfield.

Dogs must register in order to participate.

Pre-registration is suggested as categories fill up fast. The cost to
pre-register a dog is $12 if received by Feb. 7, $15 after that date and the day of the show. Each registered dog may be entered in two categories. Registration fees are non-refundable. Judging will be done by representatives of the sponsoring businesses and community volunteers.

Admission to the event is by donation and all proceeds benefit the college’s Annual Fund.

Can He Really Sing?

Categories and sponsors include “Best Trick” by Berkshire Gas; “Best Smile” by Dr. Ed Helitzer; “Fastest Tail Wagger” by Legacy Banks; “Best Dressed” by Credit Union of the Berkshires; “Most Musical” by Berkshire Music School; “Best Hair” by The Clip Shop; “Best Fetcher” by The Berkshire Eagle; “Earresistible Ears” by Greylock Insurance Agency; “Best Kisser” by Pittsfield Veterinary Hospital; and “Best Rescued Dog” by Greylock Federal Credit Union. “Mystery Mutt” sponsored by Animal Life Publication will challenge the judges as they must guess the breeds of the dog.

“Most Photogenic,” sponsored by Country Curtains, is open to both dogs and cats. Those interested in this category must submit a favorite photo of their pet. The picture must be received by Feb 7. Eligible pictures will be posted during the show and the picture that receives the most votes by the audience wins. Photographs must be accompanied by a registration form and mailed to Ann Phillips, Berkshire Community College, 1350 West St., Pittsfield, MA 01201.

Vendors will have pet-related items for sale and nonprofit agencies will provide information pertaining to pet services. Refreshments will be offered for sale by the BCC LPN program. Local businesses have donated items for a raffle. Dan Dillon, Relationship Development Officer at Greylock Federal Credit Union will emcee.

Essential Information

Dogs must be on a leash at all times. All dogs must have up-to-date rabies shot. Females in season should not participate
