While the turkey is cooking you can turn your attention to cute pups, as NBC brings us the annual National Dog Show 2016. We’ve got all the details on how you can watch the adorable Thanksgiving Day pooches on parade competing for Best in Show via live stream!
Who’s a good doggie? Well, lots of them as 202 breeds are competing in the ring at the National Dog Show Presented by Purina, though only one lucky pooch will take home Best in Show. In an annual tradition, the Kennel Club of Philadelphia holds an all-breed contest the weekend before Thanksgiving, and NBC will air all the puptactular action Nov. 24 from noon to 2pm across each time zone. Since a lot of people will be busy cooking, prepping and not near a TV, we’ve got your way to watch all the canine cuteness online. CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE NATIONAL DOG SHOW LIVE STREAM.
Three new breeds sanctioned by the American Kennel Club have been added to this year’s competition: the Pumi (herding group), the Sloughi (hound group) and the American Hairless Terrier (terrier group). They’ll be competing in a field of 2,000 entrants across seven groups in an event that raises money for a variety of canine-related causes. It’s a great break for anyone who doesn’t want to watch Thanksgiving Day football, and who doesn’t love dogs?
“For 15 years, the National Dog Show Presented by Purina has been at the forefront of the purebred dog world,” host John O’Hurley said. “I’m proud to be a part of a legacy that celebrates such a rich history. I look forward to seeing all the dogs and families, who come out to join us on my favorite day of the year.”
Last year’s winner was a 4½-year-old Skye Terrier named Good Time Charlie, who was selected Best in Show from among the seven group winners. Who will it be this year? Be sure to tune in and find out!
