Good Licks And Tricks Make Pups Winners

OCEAN CITY, N.J. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Tomorrow (Apr. 11), talented pets in Ocean City, New Jersey, can show off their tricks – as long as they don’t try to eat each other.

Adorable and acrobatic animals will be competing in the 15th Annual Woofin’ Paws Pet Fashion and Talent Show.

Though household pets are welcome to compete in categories like Best Face Licker, Pet Owner Look-Alike, and Intelligent Pet Tricks, eating another one of the contestants is not a trick judges will reward.

Spokesperson Mark Soifer jokes, “We say that the contest is open to any pet that will not eat another pet, so people won’t bring their lions or tigers to compete. We don’t want them here.”

Those pets hoping to take home the Best Face Licker prize should remember to keep it sloppy since, as Soifer puts it, “If it gets messy you know they’re the Best Face Licker.”

For the look-alike contest, Soifer says wearing matching outfits will help pups and owners claim the crown, though dyeing either contestant’s hair may be “extreme.”
