Reindog Parade - Atlanta Botanical Gardens


On December 7th, I participated for the first time in Atlanta Botanical Gardens "Reindog Parade".

Emcees were Victoria Stilwell (Celebrity Dog Trainer from "It's Me or The Dog" on Animal Planet) and Holly Firfer. for the once-a-year fun event for dogs in the Garden.  Pooches were dressed in holiday finery to compete for prizes with celebrity judges or to just show off. 

Categories:
Best Puppy  •  Best Adult  •  Best Botanical  •  Best Dog Pack
Best Dog-Owner Dress-a-Like  •  Not competing – just showing off!

When Mom tried to register me online the contest had already filled up so I was put on a waiting list.  Evidently, they had a limit of 125 dogs and I was number 34 on the wait list, so we weren't optimistic about being able to compete.  Mom decided that it would be fun to just go and watch and take a chance that they would let me in the parade.  She designed my costume and mobile stage with the "Nutcracker" theme and I was the "Sugar Plum Fairy".  I wore a white lace tutu with gold and silver sparkles with a tiara, just like the ballerina in "The Nutcracker".  When we got to the Garden, a very nice lady was able to get me in the parade, so I was able to compete.  I was entered into the "Best Adult" category and I won!!
 The competition was stiff with some very creative costumes.  Amazingly, I also won the big trophy for "Best of Show"  Mom and I were shocked that we went from not being able to participate to winning the big prize.

Diva Dog Pageant Win #2

Diva Dog Signature Pageant


Yeah, I just won my second Diva Dog Contest!  This one is a Signature Pageant which qualifies me for "Diva Dog International".  Mom had to send in a photo of me in my crown with my trophy and sash that I won, for the Diva Dog website, so she photographed me in my Halloween costume.  It seemed like the appropriate dress and setting.  The category was "Cutest Outfit" and this is the photo that won.

Diva Dog Pageant Win for "Travel Mini Pageant"



My Mom is so excited that she found an online full glitz pageant for dogs, so of course she had to enter some of my pictures.  The first pageant was actually a Mini Pageant with the theme "Travel Dogs".  So she entered this photo of me driving a sporty pinkmobile.  It won first place and I got this beautiful pink crown.  Keep posted cause I'm sure she will be entering me in more pageants in the future.
