FEATURE: Pet Pageant
Midland resident Jean Thompson wraps her arms around the fake locks of hair as she puckers up for a kiss from her dog Sheila, her one-year-old Jack Russell-labrador mix, while sitting on a bench near the Tridge after competing in a costume contest Saturday afternoon during the Parade Your Pet Pageant. Thompson, who works at the Humane Society, adopted Sheila as a rescue. Shelia's former owners surrendered her and she came without a name. "She was so adorable, I had to bring her home," she said. "Her former owners abused her. She needed someone who would care. This is a second chance for her. I love her so much."
