A Dogged Pursuit
Four hundred and ten dogs (and their owners) came to La Encantada to strut before our judges in Tucson Lifestyle’s annual Cover Dog Contest. With entries ranging in size from teacup Chihuahuas and Yorkies to Great Pyrenees and Mastiffs, our panel had their hands full trying to select a winner (who you will meet on page 40). Check out some of the photogenic pups who visited us.
