2014 St. James Parish Pet Show Best of the Show winner - Kali Calamusa.

St. James Parish 4-H held the annual 4-H Pet Show on Saturday, October 18, 2014 at the Lutcher High School pavilion.  Over fifty exhibitors from six area schools showed cats, dogs, birds, hamsters and rabbits. There was even a bearded dragon and a snake, which Vacherie Elementary club leader Eva Knight was brave enough to model.  Many exhibitors wowed the audience with tricks performed by their dogs.

The 4-H Pet Show was judged by several members of the community.  Judges included Lindsey Bordelon of Lindsey's Pampered Pets, teachers Lori Louque and Wendy Zeller, former 4-H'er Brandi Sieber and Lori Oubre.  Lori Oubre spoke to the group about how to get involved in animal rescue in St. James Parish.  The 4-H Junior Leaders assisted with the judging and tallying results.

Many awards were given to the exhibitors.  The students awarded Best Overall in each division were given a chance to talk about their pets.  This year, the Best Pet of the Show was a large dog named "Shea" exhibited by Kali Calamusa of Vacherie Elementary.
