Heather Milliron, a student at Possum Elementary School, is the proud owner of the Top Dog in Clark County for 2011. “Jasmine saved my life when there was a coyote outside”, Heather wrote in her essay. Jasmine will wear the number one dog tag issued in Clark County.
Second place winner is Maggie Bruce, at Catholic Central Elementary School in Springfield, and third place winner is Morgan Tackett, a student at Possum Elementary School in Springfield Township. Maggie’s dog Oxford will wear top dog tag number two, while Morgan’s dog Buckeye will wear number three.
The annual top dog contest, available to all third, fourth and fifth grade students in Clark County, is held each year to stress the importance of dog licensing. “Our office will issue approximately 25,000 tags for 2011,” according to Clark County Auditor George Sodders.
