Bill White – Bulldog Beauty Contest

I will once again be a judge Sunday for America On Wheels’ annual Bulldog Beauty Contest.

Some 30 dogs are expected to compete for the coveted crown, and attendees also get to vote for their favorite dogs in various categories.

Joining me as judges will be Channel 69’s Jaccii Farris and Amy Sander of Mack Trucks.

I’ve been judging ever since they started this several years ago, and it’s always great fun. It helps that I’ve loved bulldogs going back to my fraternity days, when a funny bulldog named Bert was our mascot. These are dogs with amazing personalities, not to mention comical looks that on this day are enhanced in some cases by costumes.

One of the best parts, particularly if you’ve never been to the museum, is that there’s plenty of time to also check out all the interesting antique auto exhibits. There’s lots there for kids, too, and children 12 and under get in free on Sundays. The event runs 1-3 Sunday. America on Wheels is at 5 N. Front St., Allentown.
