The first Kanterbury K-9 Kakewalk was held on Saturday, August 28, at the Canterbury Square Condominiums in downtown Woodinville.
Residents of Canterbury with dogs met at their clubhouse at 3 p.m. The dogs and their owners then paraded down the streets inside their park, with many residents watching and taking photographs. There are 122 mobile homes in the park. A dog competition followed the parade.
The twelve participants and their dogs were: Dale Sarver with Barney; Walt and Rosemary Hemphill with Bee-Jay; Virginia Reichman with Duffy; Jack and Melba Emery with Gus; Richard and Marge Lynch with Max; Jill Newkirk with Misty; Mel and Joyce Scott with M.J.; Harold Washburn with Muffy; Van and Vivian Cyphers with Nikki; Ed and Rose Clark with Pokey; Mary Warner with Spanky; and Del Greening with Taffy.
Ribbons were awarded in the following categories: largest, smallest, cleverest costume, best personality, most well-behaved, funniest, sexiest, fattest, thinnest, and most beautiful. All entrants received a ribbon and a certificate.
A barbeque potluck followed. A drawing was held for prizes donated by local merchants. Approximately 50 people attended.
"This is our answer to the annual Basset Bash," said Jack Emery.
