Pleasantview Lodge in High Prairie celebrated dogs with its annual dog show Feb. 7. About 20 dogs and their handlers were on show during the event that has been held the past seven years, says recreation director Norma Deuchar. “It’s fun and everyone enjoyed it,” Deuchar says. “For many of the senior residents, it takes them back to their childhood.”
