Herding dogs can be tricky to own since natural instincts may cause them to try to herd your human family up! This group saw a familiar face — the same breed we remembered from past Super Bowl commercials and the same dog that won the Herding Group in 2009.Find out if the Puli comes out on top when you read more
My biased opinion had me waiting on the edge of the couch (with North) to see which pooch would win the hodgepodge Non-Sporting Group. Now, as you can see from the final four, no Boston Terrier love again this year. Oh well. But three smooshies made it far!

With the smallest pups of all, the toys are far from playthings. Oftentimes considered a lotta dog in a little package, this group's judge made funny sounds to get the pups to respond . . . and did they ever!

The National Dog Show is a Thanksgiving TV tradition in my house — when I win the battle of the big screen away from football, that is. Airing immediately after the Macy's parade on NBC, more than 150 breeds will compete to win best in show. This year we'll see three new AKC-recognized breeds — I've gathered pictures and facts on each one, so click through and be prepared for these furry faces.
As dog lovers but not necessarily dog experts, we tend to root for breeds we like, dogs we've seen, or just those pups that are looking extra cute.
