Rocky Cash came to the Boyle County Fairgrounds on Saturday to give his dogs a little more attention.
Less than two weeks ago, Cash's daughter was born and he said his dogs have been neglected ever since.
He said when he was at the hospital he showed the doctors photos of his three boxers - Haven, Size and Beauty - saying they were his first kids.
Cash and his trio were among the pets and owners gathered Saturday morning at the fairgrounds to show off their pets as a part of the Boyle County Fair.
Pet owners could enter their dogs into 11 different categories, including pet in costume and pet tricks.
Many of this year's participants were first-timers, including Ronda Crutchfield and her 8-month-old puppy, Molly. Crutchfield said she decided to participate because "Molly is very special."
