Ironically, her project was "Wiggles and Wags" -- an instructive project about how to take care of your dogs, especially boxers. "1 did this display in memory of my boxer, "Sadie," who didn't get to participate in this show as I had wanted her to do," Samatha, a member of the Cedarville Centurion 4-H Club, explains. Sadie would, no doubt, be proud of the Blue Ribbon effort of Samatha, too.
