Since 2002, actor John O’Hurley has proudly hosted The National Dog Show Presented by Purina on Thanksgiving Day, and he recently shared his perspective on what it’s like to witness the beauty and majesty of the dogs in the annual event. While the dogs in the competition are top show dogs, he says they are still family pets who snuggle on the couch and act like regular dogs when they aren’t working. “They know how to show,” he said in an interview with Showbiz Cheat Sheet.
“The National Dog Show” dogs still love to cuddle on the couch
“They know how to show,” he said in an interview with Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “Because they know how it feels to be in the ring…” They’ve been well-trained. They are, however, the dogs who sit on the couch when they return home. They also drink from the toilet bowl. It’s just dogs behaving badly. They aren’t better behaved; they are the same dogs as the rest of us. That’s one of the things we like about it. “That’s the beauty of it,” he continued.
“You’re always rooting for your alma mater.” You know, you want to support your own breed at home. That’s part of the show’s appeal. By the way, this will be the twentieth year. This year marks the 20th anniversary of our company. More than 30 million people are expected to tune in. It’s NBC’s most successful event to date. Every year, the number of viewers increаses. ”
