Boyle Heights dog show: In Boyle Heights, they're top dogs — if only for a day - latimes.com
The contenders included Corona, an English bulldog known for her extreme snoring, and Chulis, a prissy poodle from Guadalajara who loves to watch King Kong movies.
There was also Tripod, a brown-eyed mutt rescued from the streets of Compton, where he scavenged on three legs.
One by one, the canines lined up at Resurrection Parish in Boyle Heights on Saturday for the community's first-ever dog show: pit bulls from Pico Rivera, Chihuahuas from Downey and boxers from Covina, all ready to compete for a trophy and neighborhood bragging rights.
