Pooch parade seemingly smooth

Except for a few snarls and escapees.

The annual pooch parade at Ehmen Park got off without a hitch Thursday—just a few growls and a couple of runaway dogs.

The event kicked off the 2010 Harvest Festival.


First-place choice for the judges in the large dog category was Jax Rickertsen and Cooper. Second place was Anna Cooper and Coca and third place went to Brett Mazour and Katie.
