The first "True Dog and Pony Show" was held at the South Carolina Equine Park on Saturday, June 2. The weather was perfect and everywhere you looked there was an adorable dog or an amazing horse. The food was delicious, many cool vendors participated and a good time was had by all who came out to support the building and renovation of the new Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter.
