NEW CANAAN — A black Labrador named Zipper sat upright and perfectly still, waiting for a prayer to end before eating, at the family dog show at the recent St. Mark’s Fair.
Zipper was one of 18 rescue and non-rescue covers on the new show, displaying their training and being introduced by children from the dog’s family. After a short interview conducted by Mark Thorsheim, the siblings often worked together to coax dogs onto a training ramp. Some have. Some did not.
