OVERLAND PARK, KS (October 19, 2016) – Bentley, an English Bulldog dressed as Lady Gaga, is this year's winner of Tallgrass Creek's Pet Costume Parade.
He was selected Top Dog from among a field of 15 contestants that represented an assortment of dog breeds -- inclusive of English Cocker Spaniel, German Shepherd, Bolognese, Boxer, Maltese Shih Tzu, Beagle, Schnauzer, and Yorkshire Terrier.
Bentley, who is a six-year-old rescue, put on his best strut before a panel of resident judges.
"I am honored that Bentley won," said his owner, Blake Marshall, the community's sales director, "but he now has to go to doggie therapy."
The event featured residents, staff and their pets. Doggie treats were the day's preferred cuisine.
