The Pet Show sponsor was Fancy Paws LLC. It also donated the ribbons and prizes for all winners.
Later in the day, fair-goers gathered to watch trucks and cars try to drive through a giant mud bog.
Following the competition, WDNE Radio representatives again challenged members of The Inter-Mountain in a media tug-of-war. Last year, WDNE Radio pulled their way to the championship, however, members of The Inter-Mountain team were too much for Team WDNE this year.
Miss Randolph County Fair Queen Lynnlee Wileman challenged Miss Teen Queen Natasha Ray in a tug-of-war just for fun.
