Brooklyn’s “Hottest Dog”

On November 12, 2011, Banfield Pet Hospital hosted Brooklyn’s “Hottest Dog” contest to celebrate the grand opening of the Banfield Pet Hospital in Brooklyn. World Championship Competitive Eater, Joey Chestnut, judged the “Hottest Dogs” as guests enjoyed Nathan’s hot dogs. We didn’t get to attend in person, but it sure looks like it was a fun event. Just look at these adorable dogs!
