This is a cross-posted note from the petblog at Scratchings and Sniffings.
On Thanksgiving Day Purina sponsored the National Dog Show which was hosted by the Kennel Club of Philadelphia. They introduced a new breed called the Dogue de Bordeaux (also called a French Mastiff, so this site says) which I really liked. But, I did not get to see the whole event, so I am not sure how well it did.
Over at Scratchings and Sniffings, we have a video of the show, from MSNBC, so hop over and watch for yourself. Someone asked me why they would put the dog show on Thanksgiving Day and I can only guess but my sense is that it’s for those of us who do not watch football.
BTW, this is just ONE of many events sponsored or hosted by Purina. The company is very pet-centered. To learn more about what they do, visit Petcentric and Pet Charts.
Just so you know that Pet Health Insurance is one product in a long line of things Purina does in support of our pets. My favorite, of course, is the Incredible Dog Challenge. More about that another time. Enjoy the National Dog Show. Let me know what you think of the Dogue de Bordeaux.
