This April Fool’s Day a competition that’s no laughing matter will be held on the grounds of the Boca Grande Community Center. It is a stiff and fierce contest to determine the key canine players within our island community ... at least for another two years. The Boca Grande Woman’s Club Dog Show has become a tradition and is our island’s equivalent to the Westminster. It’s a very serious dog show, with all the traditional groups represented – working, herding, terrier, hounds, even a designer group and a rescue group. They have a “tricks” competition, a costume contest, a dog/owner look-a-like competition, musical chairs, and more. Also to be crowned at the event will be the Boca Geezer, the island’s oldest dog, and the Boca Bowser, which is the island’s coveted title going to “best of show.” 46 GASPARILLA ISLAND March/April 2017 By Marcy Shortuse Photos by Christine Cunningham
