Margaret Defends Crown

Proud Mother

Margaret Helms successfully defended her title, and for the second year in a row, captured the win in the large breed category of the “Doggy Fashion Show” at the Sunderland Maple Syrup Festival. The English Bulldog, who belongs to Dorothea and Rich Helms of Sunderland, was dressed in her Easter finery – pink feather boa and pink hat. Many thanks to Barb Thompson of Pawsitive Style Pet Food Accessories and Grooming in Sunderland, who once again generously sponsored this contest and provided great dog goodies to the participants and winners. Margaret is home now, and exhausted from the pressure of competing and posing for the paparazzi who hounded her for photos and quotes. Her take on the day: “Woof!”

Which way is the Easter parade?

    If I had of been a judge, I too would have given Margaret 1st Prize – what an adorable picture – she truly is BEAUTIFUL. I am a TOTAL animal lover and have three “rescues” of my own. Margaret, you were well named – and your daddy hasn’t changed a bit!!!! And I’m sure your mommy is still as sweet as ever – also a beautiful picture.
