If you (or your dog) could use a self-esteem boost, head to Morton West High School (2400 Home Ave, Berwyn) tomorrow for the Great American Mutt Show. The events run from 10a-3p, and feature adoptable dogs, pet care tips, and most of all, a competition of pooches for awards such as "Smallest Big Dog," "Friendliest," "Best Listener" and "Best Lap Dog Over 50 Pounds." A "Dock Dog" competition will also be held to find the best animal that can make the leap from land to water.
