Oct. 6 – Mutt Show: New­ton County pups will be strut­ting their stuff Oct.6 at the an­nual Mutt Show on the down­town Cov­ing­ton square. But don’t let the name fool you. Just be­cause it’s called a Mutt Show doesn’t mean pure­bred dogs aren’t wel­come as well. As long as they are friendly, leashed, at least 6 months old and have had their ra­bies vac­ci­na­tion, they are wel­come to come. Reg­is­tra­tion for the event be­gins at 9 a.m. with the show be­gin­ning at 10 a.m. Al­though par­tic­i­pa­tion in the event is free, do­na­tions are en­cour­aged and will be used to help with the spay and neuter
