It’s a dog-eat-dog world, especially in the world of canine competitions. Well, maybe not at Next Top Dog at The District at Green Valley Ranch in Henderson, where contributing photographer Tom Donoghue was on doggie duty for this photo gallery.
Tilley, a 5-month-old Labradoodle, won first place, and her owner, 8-year-old-Zoe, was one proud winner. More than 300 dogs competed in the event, with a fashion show and obedience training to keep participants amused. Steph Mackenzie of 97.1 FM served as emcee.
