National Pet Talent Search In Longview

It was kind of a talent search meets stupid pet tricks. Dozens of people and their pets are hoping to get some national exposure. At Jakes Feed on McCann road in Longview, it was the national talent search for amazing animals sponsored by Purina-mills.

People brought their pets in.  Some were talented and some were not so talented.  They were looking for a chance at prize money and an appearance on the Animal Planet channel. From a 20 pound possum... To a hypnotized rabbit... many just came to show off their pets whether they had a chance at winning or not.

Winners also qualify for a $5,000 prize. A Longview Border Collie was awarded first place in todays talent competition.
