The Kiwanis Club of Ramona’s 7th Annual Bow Wow Pow Wow Fun Dog Show, held Saturday, June 11, was highly entertaining to all in attendance at the Ramona Outdoor Community Center.

Thank you to Ramona Outdoor Community Center for use of the beautiful grounds, Stater Brothers and Albertsons for posted advertising, and Ramona Sentinel for covering our event.
Approximately 55 dogs entered one or more of the fun categories. Best in Show was awarded to Shorty, a Basset/Golden Retriever mix. He also won Most Handsome Male Dog and the Best Tail Wagger category. The judges said he displayed a winning attitude. Surely, he made his companion Paul Zawilenski proud.
We hope to see you and “your best friends” at next year’s Bow Wow Pow Wow.
