PHOTOS: Citizen Canine of the Year Visits City Council

Scar, an English Bulldog pup, won the title of “Citizen Canine of the Year” in the city of Gaithersburg after winning a photo contest on the city's Facebook page.

The Gaithersburg mayor and City Council welcomed a special, four-legged guest to City Hall Monday evening to receive a proclamation.

Scar, an English Bulldog pup, won the title of “Citizen Canine of the Year” in the city of Gaithersburg after winning a photo contest on the city's Facebook page.

Residents were encouraged to take photos of their leashed and licensed pooches in parks around the city and enter them for a chance to be declared “Citizen Canine of the Year” in order to promote visits to city parks and to celebrate the wonderful world of dogs, Mayor Sidney A. Katz said.

Scar received 241 votes and participated in the Gaithersburg Labor Day Parade in Olde Towne on Sept. 3, 2012.
