Milford Dog Show 

There was a prize for the biggest dog and the waggiest tail.It was a dog show, put on by the Old Town-Orono animal orphanage.Folks entered their dogs into 15 different categories, from shortest dog, to longest tail.They asked the pups to show off their best tricks, and there also was a game of musical chairs.Each category cost a dollar to enter.Organizers say it’s not a serious type of dog show, but the proceeds do go to help a good cause. “We just wanted people to come out and have a good time, and show their dogs off is what we wanted to do,” Said Roberta Fowler of the Old Town Animal Orphanage. “And all the proceeds go to the orphanage to help take care of the animals that don’t have homes.”The Animal Orphanage is a no-kill shelter that takes in strays and houses them until they can find them “forever” homes.President Roberta Fowler says they’re currently housing 88 cats who are looking for homes.The dog show is now in its 16th year, and Fowler says it just gets better every year.
