Costume Contest - June 28th - I'm Proud to be a Native North American!

 "I'm Proud to be a Native North American!"

Did you know that Chihuahuas are the only dog breed native to North America?  That's right!  Their blood line is proudly traced back hundred of years in and around Chihuahua Mexico. It is also believed that Chihuahuas descend from the fox species lines rather than the wolf line like every other dog.  There are many Countries in North America... But only ONE Native dog... the CHIHUAHUA, Amigos!!.  Our happy Meetup is not just for Chihuahuas though, so we decided to have a costume contest that includes ALL things "North American!"

Your challenge is to dress your pet in something that screams North America.  Is it the upcoming Independence Day celebration in the USA?  Cinco de Mayo?   Victoria Day?  Or maybe you want to represent a culture?  Perhaps the American Southwest?  Eskimos or Aztecs?  Get creative Amigos!

Your Judges will score each dog 1-3 points in each of the following categories: 

THEME: did your costume meet the theme criteria, Native North American, in some way?

CONSTRUCTION:  did you make 100% of your costume?  Purchase it then embellish?  Buy it outright, no embellishment needed?  Paint on your pet?  Judges are looking for how much thought/time went into costume preparations.

STORY:   In 50 words or less, how does your costumed Amigo represent the "I'm Proud to be a Native North American" theme? Why you should win?

Every participant will take home a gift, however THREE lucky Amigos will take home Prize Packages!  The three highest scores will take home prizes of gift cards, collars, leashes, toys, and MORE!

Good luck Amigos!  We hope you find many ways today and every day to Nurture Your Inner Chi!
