Lambda Chi Alpha host their Annual Dog Show
By: Michaela Dennis
Lambda Chi Alpha is hosting their 7th Annual dog Show on April 7 to earn funding for Feeding America, their national philanthropy.
Participants are required to pay a $25 entry fee and can submit their dog either under the small dog division or large dog division.
This year, the first-place winner will be able to go home with a gift basket. Judges will be members of the fraternity who will grade based on costumes and talent.
Mizael Gonzalez is a member of Lambda Chi and will participate in hosting the event. Gonzalez is excited for the event this year due to the high success of the event last year. She is also looking forward to seeing the dogs dressed in their costumes.
“Seeing a dog dressed as a pirate and twirling around in circles is so cute and funny,” Gonzalez said.
Peyton Wood participated in the dog show last year. Unfortunately, her dog did not place previously, but she is very hopeful in making the podium this year.
Wood’s cavalier spaniel, Penny, is trained to high five, sit, shake and spin. Wood plans to win the show this year by teaching her dog to speak and getting her dressed in a costume.
“I am really hopeful to make a comeback this year, everyone should be prepared for me,” Wood said.
Brooke Rogers, a sweetheart to Lambda Chi Alpha, will also be participating in the event. As a sweetheart, she will attend the event and help the fraternity during if needed.
In the meantime, Rogers will be promoting the event on her social media account in hopes for more students to sign up.
She is excited to see how many students participate in this event because of the increase in students bringing dogs onto campus.
