In case you missed it (as I did), you can still see the Rescue Dog Show on the Hallmark Channel’s website or on their app. Categories included such characteristics as Best in Snoring, Best in Underbite, Best in Wiggle Butt, and Best in Kissing.

No spoilers here, but it’s an event you don’t want to miss!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
