Second Annual Cutest Dog Contest

Whole Foods Market in Springfield is having their 2nd Annual Cutest Dog in Springfield contest to raise money for The Whole Planet Foundation charity (www.wholeplanet.org).

The Contest will be held outside the store on Saturday, March 24, from noon to 3 p.m. For a $10 entry fee (all goes to charity), customers can get their dog photographed, and enter to win Whole Foods Market gift cards. The dogs get "doggie bags" too. Team members will vote for the winners.
