While our dog is definitely not the fastest eater, (she had barely started when another dog had finished eating its peanut butter off a spoon), she did win second place in the costume contest! The first place winners were twin lab puppies in bikinis. If there weren't two I really don't think they would have won, but they were pretty cute. Dang twins!
As a prize, Lexi was awarded a bag of dog treats and a dog christmas ornament. Vincent was thrilled. We heard there was going to be a contest and spent a long time the evening before looking for a costume for Lexi. Vincent piced out a banana split, but our dog has a pretty small head, so the banana hat didn't really fit. So most of the time she was just an ice cream.
There were some costumes I liked better, but Lexi is Vincent's dog and I wanted him to pick. He loves his dog so much and was so happy to win. I didn't really get any good pictures, but I did find one decent one. There were a ton of dogs and kids and people... just too much to worry about the camera.
Vin with his dog Lexi. She makes him so happy :D
