The Truck Stop is excited to announce our 2nd annual Potlicker Dog Show on Saturday February 12th! 10 island born pups will compete in classic dog show events to find out who is best in show! It will be EXACTLY like Westminster� except without the hundreds of years of breeding, hours of grooming, professional handlers, training, crowds, television crew, or prize money .

Do you think your dog has what it takes to compete? Send us your dog's name, photo, and a brief description of why you think your dog is a champion! We will pick the 10 doggos to compete in the agility course for fun prizes. This will be a charity event where proceeds go directly to SAGA, our island shelter.

Super fun afternoon at the The Truck Stop for the 2nd Annual Potlicker Dog Show raising money for Saga Humane Society. There was some prancing and preening but mostly potlickers doing what potlickers do -- the Frank Sinatra song that was played a few times doing the event summed it up perfectly.

The Truck Stop's 2nd Annual Potlicker Dog Show: They Did It Their Way

Saturday afternoon, a couple of hundred dog-lovers assembled at the Truck Stop in San Pedro, Belize to cheer on seven fine examples of the world's best "breed" at the 2nd Annual Potlicker Dog Show. To watch the champions compete and to raise money for our beloved humane society. And I was asked to help judge the contestants.

Potlickers are Belizean mutts (though that is such an ugly word) and can be spotted all over the country. The Breed name is derived from their traditional food source: licking the family stewed chicken and rice and beans pot after dinner. "Breed" characteristics: Street-smart, picky and discerning when it comes to people and offered treats (potlickers have been known to take an offered breakfast burrito, unwrap it to eat the insides only, and walk away from the tortilla), protective of their owners, extremely grateful, and quirky/clownish.
