Dancers light up nursing center

The wild entertainment at the Adams County Nursing Center Thursday had more than one tail wagging.

A ballerina, cheerleader and even a biker — for those with a need for speed — pranced, paraded and even puckered up for the center’s residents.

“I loved the show,” said center resident Lynn Smith, who sat back, watched and graded the performances of the night.

But the performers weren’t of the two-legged variety.

Eight dogs entered into the center’s Relay for Life Pet show to strut their stuff in nine different categories including best senior pet (8 or older), best pet under 8, most adorable, friendliest, best costume, furriest pet, most glamorous, mirror image and best of show.

Three residents, including Smith, served as judges. Event coordinator Cheryl Freeman said many of the residents enjoy dogs and enjoy it when people bring their dogs to the center for pet therapy.

“I thought if we did a pet show it would encourage more people to bring in their pets for therapy,” Freeman said.

She was also happy with the outcome of the event, which raised $49 for the nursing center’s Relay for Life team.

“I think it went well,” she said. “It was an activity that everyone enjoyed and it wasn’t too competitive. Everyone supported each other.”

Freeman plans to have another pet show in fall, and the tail-waggers — two- and four-legged alike — are looking forward to it.
