DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA (WALB) - The dog days of summer may be behind us, but in Dougherty county this weekend went to the dogs. The 51st annual Thronateeska Kennel Club dog show wrapped up Sunday.

The two day event brought in hundreds of dog owners from around the country who hoped to win best in show. Spectators saw a variety of dogs from spaniels, labs and poodles strutting their stuff.

And though this was a smaller show, it still brought a boost for the local economy.

"In the Atlanta area, they will bring in almost three thousand dogs. So people will come in for the weekend. Some stay in motels. They will eat in our restaurants. They are buying our gas. They are spending money. They do some shopping and things such as that. So it is a good thing for our community," said Phyllis Crumb.

This year there were about 600 entries, down from 700 last year. Organizers say though the tough economy has taken its toll, they are already working on making next years show bigger.
