At 2:30 p.m., the show started by parading the contestants around the upper ground floor. Lychee was so happy to roam around at the mall. While most pets wanted to be carried, Lychee was enjoying her walk. As we returned to the event center, the three female judges were introduced. They were judges chosen among the sponsors. A brief information was given about them such as their profession (unrelated to dogs) and whether they had pets.
The participants were asked to walk along the red carpet and place their dogs at a table by the end for photograph. Participants were divided into batches composing of five dog owners each. Since we were number 20, we have at the fourth batch. At the end of each batch, a spokesperson from the person discusses their products. While waiting for our turn, Lychee kept rubbing her face trying to remove her big red glittery bow. People wanted to take a picture of her but Lychee was a hyper dog so it was quite difficult to make her stay in one position. Kurt also did not manage to take a single photo of us durign the show for the same reason.=(
When we were called, she walked straight to the table. I place her their to have her pictures taken. There were around 8 photographers. I glanced at the judges but there weren't looking.
Soon, the participants for the guardian and dog category were called so we walked the carpet again. After that it was the pair dogs turn. After 30 minutes, the judges announced their decision and awarded the prizes. As expected we didn't win anything. The show ended as scheduled at around 5:00 p.m.
We quickly exchanged our button pin for our Alpo giveaway. All contestants should have one but some of the contestants didn't get a chance to claim theirs because of the insufficiency of supplies. Some of the contestants went home even before the giveaways were given. (Probably because some non-contestants were given some)

Overall, we are probably not for the fashion show type. We didn't want to overdress her because we were too worried that it would make her feel uncomfortable. We realized that Lychee will always be cute in our eyes. It doesn't whether she wins based on others judgment. To us, she will always be our "Doggie Diva."
