On Saturday, the Philadelphia Water Department and a panel of judges awarded the Philly Water's Best Friend title in Queen Village to ... Joey Bag-o-Donuts! The 32-pound Shiba Inu, described by owner Ellie Gibbard as a "world-class snuggler," took top honors among the contestants at Mario Lanza Park. Joey Bag-o-Donuts and his owner will assume the responsibility of teaching Philadelphians and their dogs how they can reduce the amount of harmful bacteria in our waterways by picking up pet waste.
Stay tuned for more photos from the contest.
