A day to give thanks (for beagles)
The beagle — not the turkey — will be dominating this Thanksgiving Day, at least on NBC.
Uno, the first beagle to win best in show at Westminster, will not only make an appearance on The National Dog Show on NBC, he’ll also be in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
The National Dog Show, sponsored by the Philadelphia Kennel Club â€” is actually taped ahead of time. (It was held over the weekend in Reading, Pa.) Hosted by John O’Hurley (who played J. Peterman on “Seinfeld”), the show is presented by Purina .
O’Hurley is joined by dog expert and veteran show announcer David Frei, who’ll also be riding with Uno on the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade float. Of course, Uno won’t be the only beagle in the parade. Perennial favorite Snoopy — in the form of a giant balloon — will also be there.
The dog show airs at noon on Thanksgiving, right after the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
