Last Thursday’s Farmers Market saw Burien’s sexiest new models strut their stuff in Town Square Park. Sleek, sensual, and um… furry. With four legs. That’s right; it was a doggie fashion show!

The brainchild of Puget Sound Skills Center student Amanda Schiripo, the event was the culmination of her senior project. Amanda worked with local businesses to obtain prizes for the winners, and money raised through her effort went to benefit three local non-profits; Puget Sound Rescue, Seattle Humane Society and Animals First Foundation.

When the competition was over, Jagger came out on top with Riley and Rusty taking second and third place honors.

Amanda said she chose this project because, “I like animals and it sounded like fun!” That seemed just as true for the dogs and their owners who participated.

Here are additional photos taken by B-Town Blog photographer Michael Brunk.
