MERCERSBURG, Pa. - The blistering sun and soaring mercury was not enough to keep pet owners away from the 17th annual Strawberry Fest and Dog Show on Saturday.
Hosted by the Buchanan Lionesses, the annual dog show allows proud pet parents to show off their special Rover or Cocoa to benefit the Beacon Lodge Special Needs Camp in Mount Union, Pa.
Lioness President Shirley Keyser was a judge at the event and said the dogs just kept rolling in Saturday.
Forty dogs competed for titles including Best Behind and Prettiest in the show.
"I just love doing this," Keyser said. "This is the first time I get to be out here and not in the kitchen."
While the dogs pranced for prizes and the title of Best in Show, the Lionesses spent the morning cooking up strawberry shortcake.
