When organizers of the Hickories Circuit Dog Show were discussing putting on a dog show or a golf tournament, the choice was simple, they decided to do a dog show.  After all, everyone can pet the dogs, just ask first, but you can't really pet golfers.  The golfers I know don't like that very much. Ruff I know.

The AKC Sanctioned event is August 14-17 from 8am-4pm each day at the Apalachin Firemen's Field Day Grounds in Apalachin.  Presented by the Susque-Nango Kennel Club and Tioga County Kennel Club and is expected to bring in almost 1000 dogs and over 100 different dog breeds each day to compete for best in show.

Admission is a reasonable $5 per car and when you go, expect some great dog related shopping on site.  Dog lovers will want to try their luck at some of the raffles on site.  Rain or shine, it will be a howling good time in Apalachin.
