Pet owners and their four-legged friends showed off their red, white and blue spirit Saturday participating in the “Most Patriotic Dog” dress up contest held by the Main Gate Express.

Monica Card, Fort Huachuca Main Gate Express store manager and event coordinator explained that the contest is a continuance of celebrating Independence Day. She added that activities like this one remind customers of the Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s, AAFES’, promotions through the end of July.

For pet parents like Jamie Kinsey, the contest was ideal for her dog Gunner. According to the military dependent, it gave her dog some time out of the house and a chance to interact with other dogs while Tompkins Dog Park in Sierra Vista was closed temporarily for maintenance. Gunner was the big winner of the day, taking first place for his Uncle Sam-inspired outfit.

Six dogs competed in the show for “best patriotism.” First, second and third place medals were awarded along with AAFES gift cards. Runners-up did not go home empty handed receiving dog-oriented gift bags.

Adding to the patriotic theme, hot dogs, snacks and beverages were available for purchase. Children’s activities were also on hand for Family entertainment.
