Three-year-old Tyler Watson grimaces as a Labrador retriever jumps on him at a Back Forty Kennel’s booth at Utica’s first Downtown Heritage Festival Saturday. Unscathed by the pup, Ridge Lewis, also 3, remained fascinated with its tail. Ridge is the son of Jennifer and Duke Lewis of Brandon, and Tyler is the son of Melissa and Chuck Watson, also of Brandon. (The Vicksburg Post/MELANIE DUNCAN)
