The fourth annual Dogtoberfest was held at Atascadero Lake Park on Saturday.
Five dogs owned by Al and Cathy Casillas of Santa Maria took a best of show honor. Dressed in military outfits are, from left, Ernie, a wire-haired dachshund, Bert, a dachshund, Toby, a chi-weiner dog, and Pixie, a long-haired Chihuahua (in pink goggles). Hidden from view is Cari, a cairn terrier.
Faith, a 6-month-old mutt — according to owner Ben Voorhees, 11, of Santa Maria — is dressed up as Kevin from the Disney-Pixar movie “Up.”
Namasta Conner of Templeton holds Esther, a 1-year-old Chihuahua who was the winner in the scariest costume category.
