Did anyone attend the Petco Holloween Contest in Montebello 10-25-08?

I put my Lily in the Petco Holloween Contest in Montebello,CA.10-25-08 and everyone was cheering on my Lily for her beautiful costume that I made for her.I put so much time and effort making & sewing this Lion costume for Lily because it sure wasnt easy.Then,I found out and so did everyone else, that, the winners, dogs in ugly plain store bought costumes were related to the judges!The JUDGES HAD PICKED THEIR DOGS TO WIN! and it wasnt fair at all! it wasnt fair that everyone who entered their dogs in this contest wasnt given a fair chance to win.Lily got so much attention when we first walked into the store and I was complimented on my costume work by everyone at Petco. People even took pictures of Lily because she looked like a real Lion, Everyone rooted for me but we lost.. and Lily went home sad. and, I felt bad for Lily bacause she was really hot in that costume with all that fur in her face and she was mad because when the contest ended, Lily ran out of the store by herself and ran straight to the car and I dont blame my Lily. Everyone was mad, that I didnt win and alot of people complained to the judges but the judges and the manager didnt care. It also turned out that the judges were some teenage kids who cheated and picked their dogs as the winners. This is the last and final time I enter Lily in a Petco contest in Montebello, Ca because it has built bad reputation of cheating. PETCO really needs to chose Good professionals as judges and not people related to the contestants. I just wanted to share this bad experience with zoo too.

We live in upstate NY and had planned to attend our local petco, but Sadie had to have surgery so hopefully next year!

I went to the PetCo pet contest in Rapid City, SD, with my Siberian Husky "Super" Bob. Everyone loved him and other contestants were even taking pictures of him. But he didn't even place. I don't know if there were any contestants related to the judges here, but I thought for sure that Bob should have at least placed! He was sooo cute!
