OK, all you dog show lovers, prepare yourselves. This new dog show doesn’t care about pedigrees! While most dog shows focus on each dog’s level of conformance to an ideal breed standard, this show judges things like Best Wiggle Butt, Best Snoring, Best Couch Potato, and Best Underbite. Hosted by Rebecca Romijn and Rich Eisen, the show will feature celebrity judges.

The show is sponsored by Adopt-A-Pet.com, and seeks to end animal homelessness.

Preview the contestants and tune in Tuesday at 8 pm Eastern.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Help raise awareness! Light a candle of remembrance and post a photo using the hashtags #RememberTheRescue #RememberMeThursday. Together we can help make a difference and get the world talking about pet adoption.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
