Lawrence County's 2015 Top Dog Contest Winner Announced

Chewy, the cute Griffon/Pekinese Mix owned by South Point Elementary 4th Grader, Madison Spangler has been named Lawrence County’s Top Dog for 2015 in a contest sponsored by the Lawrence County Auditor’s Office.

Lawrence County Auditor, Jason Stephens presented the Top Dog trophy and free 2015 dog tag at a surprise ceremony on Tuesday, December 9 at South Point Elementary School.

In an effort to increase participation in dog licensing in Lawrence County, the Auditor’s Office sponsored a contest this fall for Lawrence County children in the 4th or 5th Grade to nominate a special dog to be named “LAWRENCE COUNTY’S TOP DOG for 2015.”

The children entered the contest by submitting a brief hand-written essay explaining why their dog should be considered the “TOP DOG” in Lawrence County. The Auditor’s Office then judged the entries submitted.

In Madison’s essay she wrote, “He is very sweet. Not the kind of sweet like sugar. That would be silly if I thought my dog taste like sugar! Oh, and did I tell you he was trained to do his doody on a puppy pad?”

Lawrence County Auditor, Jason Stephens, said "This contest is a fun way to increase dog tag sales in Lawrence County, and it also helps kids show pride in being responsible dog owners."

“I really appreciate the kids who took time to submit an essay. We have some great dogs in Lawrence County, and it is certainly entertaining to hear what young owners using their own words have to say about their dogs.”

2015 Dog Tags are on sale now through the end of January at the auditor’s office, Tipton’s on St. Rt. 93, Moore’s Hardware in Proctorville, and Dickess Market on St. Rt. 141 in Aid. Tags at the auditor’s office cost $12 for the year. At the other locations, the cost is $12.50.

Tags may also be purchased online at this website for $14.
