Steve Bartle flashes a smile after he and Sophie, a Shih Tzu, won the Owner/Dog Look-Alike category in the eighth edition of the Dog Days Dog Show at the Lititz Farmers Market on Saturday. This “just for fun” event featured 18 local dogs and their best friends. The Farmers Market resumes this Saturday at 8 a.m

The Lititz Farmers Market hosted its annual Dog Days Dog Show Saturday, and judges Jan D’Imperio and Laura and Matt Mandell had no trouble figuring out who Steve Bartle brought to the show — his twin of the canine variety, Sophie the Shih Tzu.

This dynamic duo who are regulars at the market won the Dog/Owner Look-Alike category, paws down!

With Bob D’Imperio working the crowd as emcee and prizes donated by market vendor Beckham’s Bones, the following represent the rest of this year’s winners:

Most Unusual Name: Coco Chanel

Lancaster County SPCA was also on hand. The stand was manned by Joe Jones (VP) and Amber Snyder (employee). In addition to sharing information about SPCA, they also brought two “rescued” dogs to visit with market patrons.
