Ever watch the National Dog Show competition that airs Thanksgiving day? This weekend is your chance to see something similar live and in person. No, this event isn't hosted by John O'Hurley, but there will be plenty of canine charm to observe, as over 2,000 groomed, pampered, and adored pups from over 150 breeds will be on hand to compete for Best in Show. During the event, audiences will be welcome to watch various rally and obedience competitions featuring golden retrievers, miniature poodles, black labs, and more. On Saturday and Sunday, folks will be able to take a peek behind the scenes on guided tours. Meanwhile, the three-day expo will offer info on various breeds, products, and services. Judging schedules are posted at www.onofrio.com.
