Kuma's owner, JoAnne Buell, had her own concerns as she endeavored to show off her dog to the best advantage at Saturday's Mason and Dixon Kennel Club All Breed Match Show at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center. But for all the tension of a first showing, Buell and Kuma came away with first prize in the 3- to 6-month-old female working dog category and best of breed.

The Humane Society of Washington County on Friday closed its dog adoption kennels after two dogs were diagnosed with a potentially fatal virus. One dog was euthanized after both animals tested positive for parvovirus, which is the most infectious canine disease in the United States, according to Katherine Cooker, manager of development and public relations for the Humane Society. The condition of the other dog, a puppy, was unknown Friday night, Cooker said. The Humane Society is not accepting any new adoptions, and has isolated the rest of its dogs until further notice, Cooker said.
