Dogs on the catwalk Dog Days attracts plenty of four-legged friends
It was perfect weather to let the dogs out for the Ephrata Merchants Association’s Dog Days of Summer event this past Friday night.
Owners and dogs filled the streets of downtown Ephrata with breeds from tiny Yorkies to big, fluffy Newfoundlands and everything in between.
The Ephrata Review and Lititz Record Express partnered with A Tail To Tell Puppy Mill Rescue, and A Reflection By Sherry, who took professional pet photographs in the newspaper’s lobby. Five dollars of new subscription sign-ups were donated to A Tail to Tell, a Lancaster-based non-profit organization dedicated to freeing dogs from puppy mills.
More than 20 pet vendors and other businesses were set up throughout downtown Ephrata, including DJ Jeff Adams, food vendors, face painting and kids’ games, a caricature artist and more. Guests and canines enjoyed snacks and treats, such as ice cream, and homemade baked goods for both human and dog consumption.
The famous Red Chair, which is currently visiting The Smithton Inn, was also spotted sitting around at Dog Days.
The dog parade attracted many owners and their dogs, who trotted up and down Main Street and ended at the Whistle Stop Plaza, where winners for best of show, costumes and more were announced. The following were awarded prizes for their pooches: Anne Haines and her Newfoundland, Gracey, for biggest dog; Darla Worrall and her Yorkies Lucky, Sparky and Oscar (all rescue dogs), who won for smallest dog; Darryl Oberly and his dog, Faith, took the cutest award; best costume went to Joanne Ressler and her dog Marlo; most unusual went to John Guldin’s dog, Valley; and group costume award went to Joyce and Cliff Sweigart and their dogs Buffy 2 and Jenna.
Prizes were also given out for best of show. Lennon Hultzapple and his dog Bill took home first prize. Runners-up were Gavon Newswenger and his dog, Dozer, and Peyton Bryan and dog, Pru.
