... Tilly! Tilly is a labradoodle who took top honors in Desert Companion and The District's Next Top Dog contest May 9. After an endless pageant of utterly heart-melting furry cuteness -- to the tune of more than 300 canine entrants -- Tilly took home the grand prize after wowing judges with her perky personality and furry charms. See the pics from the event here -- and congrats to everyone who entered. Also thanks to Carol Riback and Vicki Callahan of the Vegas Valley Dog Obedience Club, who shared eye-opening tips on maintaining a well-behaved pet.
