“CATS Goes to the Dogs” is the theme of the All-Island Dog Show at 11:30 a.m., Sun­day, Aug. 1, at the San Juan Coun­ty Fair­grounds in Fri­day Harbor.

The show is spon­sored by CATS, the Com­mu­ni­ty Arts The­atre Soci­ety, on behalf of the San Juan Com­mu­ni­ty Theatre.

Big dogs, lit­tle dogs, old dogs, young dogs — all are invit­ed to reg­is­ter for the show, which opens with the Grand Parade of Dogs, fol­lowed by show­ings and com­pe­ti­tions for “Best Dressed Dog,” “Best Tal­ents and Tricks,” “Most Laid-Back Dog,” and “Best Tail Wag.”

The judges are eager to hand out awards to the first, sec­ond and third place win­ners in each cat­e­go­ry. The finale will be the pre­sen­ta­tion of the judge’s choice award. All par­tic­i­pat­ing dogs will receive a par­tic­i­pa­tion cer­tifi­cate and home­made dog treats.

The show is free to the view­ing pub­lic. It is just for fun and the plea­sure of enjoy­ing our island dog friends. Bench­es will be avail­able for seat­ing or you may bring your own cush­ion or com­fy chair.
