Pooch Pageant


Set down your double espresso macchiato and Brooks Brothers catalog. It's time to slip into a mock turtleneck and head down to the Treasure Valley Dog Show at Expo Idaho. Starting Thursday, Oct. 8, more than 1,300 dogs from across the country will compete, but at the end of the day, only one will be crowned Best in Show. The event will showcase a variety of competitions, from conformation and obedience to rally and agility. Every event has been created to highlight the bond between dog and owner.

The competition is open to purebred dogs registered with the American Kennel Club, so leave your second class mutts at home.

Oct. 8-11, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m., $2-$5, Expo Idaho, 5610 Glenwood St., 208-287-5650,
