The first Kingwood Westminster Dog Show, held recently at Westminster House, brought together some of the most well-behaved and well-groomed dogs around in the community. Westminster House is a full-service senior living community located in Kingwood. Among the many adorable dogs in attendance were “Miss Tattie” the Shih Tzu of Harriet Denning, “Kitty Dollar” belonging to Jason Dollar, “Buddy” the Pomeranian of Tanja Barton, and “Scottie” of Carroll Hebert. These contestants were very excited to be able to showcase their little angels to the ballroom of spectators of the competition. “This is an extension of the community to the residents of Westminster House,” said Jennifer Thomas, head marketing coordinator. “We are appreciative of the sponsors who made this event possible. Next year, the dog show will be bigger and better.” “Every dog that comes here is a trophy dog. It reinforces the love that Westminster House residents have for their dogs,” said Denning.   The open community event had four categories of rating, from oldest dog, to youngest dog, to the best behaved dog, and finally, the cutest dog. Ribbons and trophies were made ready for the most deserving dog in each category. Also, Good Dog pet photography was present to act as “paparazzi” for the pampered dogs. Tanja Barton, a resident at Westminster House, and her Pomeranian dog “Buddy,” were happy about the event. “I’ve had Buddy for eight years after rescuing him,” said Barton. “This is the first thing I participated in since I got here.” “Scottie,” a Collie dog, was present with Carroll Hebert and participated in the competition for both fun and exposure. Scottie is available for adoption. “He is a great family dog who loves to play and is very well behaved,” said Hebert. He is being represented by the Houston Sheltie Sanctuary and is looking for a responsible family to care for him.
