And surprise, surprise, guess who always gets himself a prime spot?

Before long, everyone is rooting for a different dog they did not know even existed ten minutes prior.

The National Dog Show is quite the spectacle.

Well not as much of a spectacle as this sign (Where can I buy one of these by the way?) but close

And who will be crowned champ?

If you’re traveling today, travel safe. And wherever you are tomorrow be sure to flip the channel to NBC at noon to catch the pups in action.

  2. Oh the National Dog Show. I love to see the videos on youtube. And you were there? GREAT! For me you are BEST IN SHOW Eko! btw: at the last show I met one our your relatives, his name was ELAKO, do you now him? Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Thanks, I would have missed it otherwise!

    Great tradition. I may end up “borrowing” your idea of watching the Macy’s parade followed by Best in Show. I have to agree with you, Eko is so handsome that he already got Best in Show because he is in a class of his own. We wish you, Eko, your family and friends an great Thanksgiving.

  5. Happy Thanksgiving guys! Enjoy everything!

  6. I also love watching the Puppy Bowl in lieu of the Super Bowl.

  7. Mr. Eko & Will,

    Have a tremendous Thanksgiving. I’m grateful to have found your blog, one of my favorites to read every weekday. Question for you… I make a calendar every year listing birthdays. You can see the history of it on my blog. I’d like to add Mr. Eko. May you share that information with me?

    Thank you!
