Pointer takes top honor in National Dog Show

Here’s a look at the best in show competition at the National Dog Show, presented by Purina, and held over the holidays in Reading, Pa.

There were 1,505 dogs — 150 breeds — entered, and best in show went to Holly, an English pointer.

My votes for best supporting characters go to the Lhasa Apso who stopped in mid-strut to bring a little reality to the event, and to the johnny-on-the-spot staff member who, though the cameras didn’t catch the clean-up, was introduced by the announcer as “Peter Green, sanitary engineer.”

What?!!! No comments about the little Pekingese, whose handler should have offered the dog more poop walks (what Amie and I call the act) or fewer treat bribes?

Mary, We try to show the proper respect for dog shows, especially in the girly dog categories. Woops, I meant toy. Actually I stopped watching closely after that lady kept picking her dog up by its tail, thereby missing what was clearly such a big part (for such a little dog) of the story. I’ll update the post at once, because, here at ohmidog!, we always try to bring you the latest poop.
