Top Dog


A3 / Mark Pummell
  Carolla, a Dalmatian, received top spot in the Top Dog 2005 contest, sponsored by Mercer County Auditor Mark Giesige in an effort to highlight the importance of dog tags, now on sale for $11 per dog. Gerard Braun, a fourth-grade student at Immaculate Conception School, left, wrote the winning essay about his family dog Carolla who was rescued from a Carroll County shelter by a Dalmatian rescue group. Carolla will receive free grooming from Celina Pet Center, a number 1 dog tag and 20 pounds of dog food from Garwick's in Mendon. Smokey, owned by Angie Evers, a fourth-grader at West Elementary, will also receive food from Garwick's plus a $25 gift certificate from Wal-Mart. Chelsea, right, owned by Marion Local Elementary fourth-grade student, Carmen Meyer, takes home a $25 gift certificate from the Coldwater Animal Clinic. Proceeds from the sale of dog tags help fund the county's dog control program. All dogs three months old and above are required by law to be licensed and to wear their tags at all times.
