Wear this medal with honor, I shall.
You probably know Matt Ufford* (pictured above, left) as the former editor of Warming Glow and the originator of Corgi Friday**, but did you know he's also making it his mission to get sports blog SB Nation to pay him to pet dogs all day? He's succeeding to some extent, with coverage of dog football, his Westminster Dog Show petting challenge, and now his trip to The Brooklyn Mutt Show 2012, where he also judged the Star Wars and Star Trek dog costume contest.
The Brooklyn Mutt Show was founded in 2010 as a light-hearted response to the more serious shows limited to purebred dogs. Held in the Brooklyn Lyceum, a bath house-turned-art space at the edge of the dog-crazy Park Slope neighborhood, the Mutt Show's various contests include Best Tail, Best Beard, Most Like Owner, and Best Kisser, and the entry fees benefit animal-friendly charities: Sean Casey Animal Rescue and the Wild Bird Fund. But let's get to the crux of the matter: dogs in Star Wars and Star Trek costumes. [BRING BACK MATT!]
Indeed. Matt's video from the show is after the break along with over 30 pictures of dogs dressed as Star Wars and Star Trek characters. The first two pictures are from the show, and the rest were selected from our extensive collection.
* BRING BACK MATT!
** I accidentally spelled Corgi as Corgit, and now I want to invent an app called Corgit which automatically adds Corgi pictures to all .pdf documents.
