The first-ever American Rubber Pup contest got good growls all around as 2 hot pups from San Diego vied for best in show.
Pup Dragz and Zig Zag worked their pup magic on the geared-up crowd at the Barracks Bar in Cathedral City. Emcee Alex Lindsay, American Leatherman 2009, definitely had his hands full as he ran the pups through the three segments of the contest; Pup Up, Sexy Pup and Good Pup.
On hand for judge duties were; Alan Penrod Mr Atlanta Eagle Leather and IML 2009 second runner up, Pup Nitro Mr Hotlanta Rubber 2008, Blast SoCal Community Bootblack, and Scott Moats aka Rubberdawg. Matthew Simensen was on had to tally the very close scores.
First runner up Pup Dragz received a Tire Pup rubber chew bone and a weekend package to the West Coast Rubber weekend. Winner and American Rubber Pup 2010 Zig Zag received a custom rubber hood from Rubberdawg and a weekend package to the WCR weekend.
American Rubber Pup was part of the West Coast Rubber Winter Warm Up weekend which takes place the first weekend of February in Palm Springs.
