Meet the mutts, meet the mutts.
For the second year in a row, the Brooklyn Lyceum is hosting its version of the slightly more famous Westminster and American Kennel Club shows — but you won’t find any stuck-up pooches here
“We focus on having fun and being silly,” said Regan Fishman, who is organizing the March 26-27 event.
“The Mutt Show,” celebrates the unique qualities of dogs, that can’t be learned or mimicked, like “Best Beard,” “Best Ears,” and “Softest Coat.”
But the biggest paw-pumping category will be the “Snook-a-like” contest, where contestants will compete to see which bad-to-the-bone pup looks most like Nicole “Snookie” Polizzi from “Jersey Shore” (owners are encouraged to dress-up as well.)
“Sure, you can see a dog do a trick,” said Fishman. “But where else are you going to see them dressed as ‘Jersey Shore’ characters?”
Participants will be competing for a variety of prizes including ribbons, medals and grab bags filled of treats.
And even if there’s no seriousness to the categories, the event is more than just some satire.
“We have so many passionate pet owners here in Brooklyn,” said Fishman. “A lot of them adopt or rescue, so here is place to encourage more of that. “
“The Mutt Show,” at the Brooklyn Lyceum [227 Fourth Ave. near President Street in Park Slope, (718) 857-4816], March 26-27, 11 am-7 pm. Free for viewers. For info, visit www.brooklynmuttshow.com.
