Pet Show 3

The young lady in the background must be a judge – looks like she’s about to do the eeny, meeny, miney, moe.

I’d give it to the kid in the middle - showing up with a spare dog is brilliant! The red ribbon should go to the little guy holding Rin Tin Tin. Everybody else takes home a white.

John Gulledge captured a picture of the winner and we’ll post that later on. In the meantime, give us your best guess – left to right - which contestant won this event?

Mystery Blogger, your creative writing skills are great! Cute commentary...
(and I love knowing there'll be a "Page 2").
As to my guess on the Winner, I have no idea what they were judging on, but I'll go with the little girl and the "fluffy" dog!

These Pet Show pictures keep getting better & better. Can't wait to hear what others come up with on the identifications. your comment on the earlier photo/ Ginnie Howie, wouldn't that be her: Girl on left end with dog?

And, the little girl/blonde hair, walking out toward dogs, wearing dark coat: looks so much like my memory of Brenda Alexander (Cofer).

Just a fun photo. One little boy in short-sleeved t-shirt and another in zipped up jacket & toboggan....
Even the dogs draw attention, all looking in different directions. Sort of makes the photo come alive!

I don't know who won, but David Wolfe ('61) certainly does look confident as he stands at the far right. His dog seems to be particularly interested in what the 2 dogs are doing.

You can hardly help noting how bundled up the one little boy is while everyone else is dressed for a warm day! The little girl looks familiar to me, too, but I'm not at all sure.

I vote for the Chinese Pug because it was such a different dog for back then. Blue goes, then, to the little bundled up boy.

Not a pug! Went back and looked at its tail!! I'll think before I write next time!!

Remove my vote from the little bundled up boy! :o)

I'm sitting here with a bowl of cereal and can't believe I'm "judging" a pet show. The things we do for fun :-) I'm going with Mary Eda on the mystery girl - only because I think she may be a friend of the judge. No, that isn't Ginny Howie. Looks a little like her older sister, Patricia - but she wasn't the type that would show up in a pretty little her mother made her.

I've been meaning to apolgize for the image of my painting popping up when I do a post. Not doing it on purpose. It must be pulling it off of my blog. MF

For sure, #5 looks like he’s holding the winner but I know how women stick together so it’s probably #1. I like the underdog so I’m going with #2 – the kid in the toboggan.

Ditto on the weather comments (Margaret and Mary Eda), some are dressed for Miami, others for Minnesota.

Susan, those Elvis Presley phonographs are going for ten-thousand and up on eBay. Merry Christmas!

Mary Faith, is #1 your final answer?

Yes, Jim, that's my final answer!!!! When I make up my mind - I make up my mind!

The little girl judge - if she is the judge - is too young to have a 'beau', so my thinkin' is she will go for her fellow female in her peer group. You know how that was........

Geez - now I'm gonna go see if I have an Elvis anything to put on eBay :-)
