Fox 5 Morning News anchor Steve Chenevey, 94.7 Fresh FM morning show host Tommy McFly and an Arlington County K-9 police officer were among the guest judges at the ‘Top Dog’ talent contest in Crystal City last week.

The contest was held by the pet-friendly Residence Inn Arlington Capital View, in order to select a new canine mascot for the hotel. Pooches were put through a series of “American Idol”-style challenges, complete with commentary from the judges after each pair of performances.

In the end, Sweet Dee, a pug, captured the top prize.

    What about the Dogtober Day dog show?

    Yeah, I saw photogs there at Dogtober. Not sure who they were with–but surely not the Post, as their coverage stops at the Potomac.

    Be great to see some pics.

  • The pooch in the first photo is trying to win by kissing a judge. Unfair advantage, if I may say so. 🙂

    All are winners – very sweet pups.
