Tess was too special to keep only to ourselves. She became a therapy dog and visited hospitals and nursing homes. We volunteered for the Humane Society and participated in their events. At one called the Bow Wow Beauty Pageant, she wowed the judges with her Obedience skills, winning Most Talented and Best of Show. I thought it was all just for fun until it was announced that she'd won a year's supply of dog food from Petsmart! When I got home, I exclaimed to my husband, "Tess won Best of Show!" "So," he said dryly, "what did she win, a year's supply of dog food?"
