The 2015 Virginia 4-H Dog Show was held at the State Fair in Doswell, VA September 26th. We would like to recognize the Fauquier County 4-H’ers that competed in this year’s show – Danielle Cross, Alexis Farris, Gwen Johnson, Katie Wellington, Britt Johnson, Megan Cameron, Heather Cameron, and Katie Cameron. We would like to congratulate Danielle Cross and her Papillon Hula who won the Senior Top Dog Award. This special recognition goes to the 4-H’er and dog that receive the highest point total for rally, obedience, and showmanship competitions.
The Virginia 4-H Dog Show is self-funded through entry fees and donations. The Show is in its 43rd year and is run primarily by volunteers, most of whom grew up in the program and continue to give back.
