Charlotte, NC— Bella DeLaura, a 4 1/2 –year old miniature dachshund, has been chosen as winner of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department’s 2011 Top Dog Photo Contest. The winning photo shows Bella suspended in mid-air as she runs and jumps in a grass field. Bella is owned by Jessica DeLaura of Matthews.

The drawing was among three finalists - Bella, Boss and Zoe -- chosen for cleverness and originality by a panel of judges from 49 entries. The contest is a preliminary to the Pedigree® Bark in the Park Dog Festival presented by Food Lion. This is a signature event of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation Department on Saturday, April 30, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Rural Hill, 4431 Neck Road, Huntersville, NC. Rural Hill has plenty of space and free parking.

The Top Dog and master will be the grand marshals of the Pooch Parade at Bark in the Park and will receive a pet portrait by Tianna Fisher, a year’s supply of dog food, plus the dog will be featured on next year’s festival logo. Bark in the Park is “for dogs and the people they own!”

The 2010 Pedigree® Bark in the Park Dog Festival presented by Food Lion drew more than 14,000 people last year, most with dogs. The festival features contests like Best Costume, Best Bark, Largest Dog, Smallest Dog, Best Trick, Disc Throw and Catch, and Disc Long-Shot Catch. Register for contests at the festival. Included this year will be exhibits, dog products, adoptable dogs, prize drawings and many great dogs to see and greet! Please bring dogs on leases.
