It was the pinnacle of pet parties, a pup pachanga, a festival of furbabies.
El Paso Inc.’s first Best Pet contest asked readers to submit photos and stories of their pets for a chance to be named the Ultimate Supreme Pet – and nearly 250 entries were submitted.
The top prize went to Lucky, a 1-year-old American Staffordshire Terrier owned by Wendy Garcia and Irving Alvarado.
Winners and finalists were also selected in each of 10 categories, including Best Attitude, Chihuahua Spirit, Chuco Spirit, Fast & Furriest, Gentle Giant, Golden Oldie, Million Dollar Smile, Most Snuggle Worthy, Tiny Treasure and Wildest Spirit.
The winners in each category are featured in the 2019 summer edition of El Paso Inc. Magazine. They were also honored during the Best Pet and magazine reveal party at the Humane Society of El Paso, 4991 Fred Wilson, on Thursday, May 30.
Carbuddyz.com served as the Presenting Sponsor of this year’s contest.
