The Post travels to Indiana, Chicago 

Diane Simons, of Cedar Springs, recently traveled to Chicago with her trusty companion, a 5-month-old Basset named Auggie. They traveled there for Auggie’s first ever dog show. They stopped in Indiana along the way to stretch their legs and got a photo with the Post.

Thanks so much for taking us with you!

Dog days at Solon Market


The scene was utter chaos, with bipeds and quadrupeds jockeying for space in the crowded arena! Nobody was injured. Was it the running of the bulls—a convoluted and devious form of psycho pet gone wild? No, it was Solon Market’s first annual Dog Days Popular Pet Show for Kids and their Pets and a good time was had by all!  A planned leisurely walk around the arena had dogs and kids scattering in every direction.  “There was too much distraction,” explained Vicky Babcock, about the planned event.  “The kids did their best but the dogs just wanted to visit.”  Order was returned and each child had a chance to show off their pooch—or pig.  That’s right—while dogs were the theme of the day, the show was open to all pets and the pig, Tornado, with Alyssa, walked off with the popular vote.

The Popular Pet Show was planned as a benefit to the Humane Society and generated money for the charity.  Luke and his owner, Katherine won the most money raised. Area businesses donated the prizes.  The pet show ran concurrent with Solon Market’s first Pet Expo Saturday. Solon Market plans to bring the event back next year.  “It will be bigger and better,” said Vicky.  “We learned something from this event.  I think everybody had a great time.”
