Dogs strut their stuff in Albany

October 22, 2005

Albany-- Dog lovers are in for a special treat this weekend here in Albany.

If you take a trip to the Potter Community Center you'll see lots of furry friends. There's some big ones and even some small four-legged friends. They're all part of the 48th Annual American Kennel Club Dog Show and Obedience Trial.

It's a chance for owners and pets to bond, but it also gives over 700 dogs from all over the United States a chance to be judged for confirmation. This includes structure, movement, coat texture, and their overall appearance.

"Part of what AKC represents is responsible pet ownership and we want to show how much fun people can have with their animals and the different things they can do with them," says Show Chairperson Phyllis Crumb. Prizes include donated gifts and trophies. The show continues through Sunday at the Potter Community Center.
