Aside from eating too much turkey and family visits, one of our favorite Thanksgiving traditions is settling in by the television on Thursday morning to watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade followed by The National Dog Show presented by Purina.
I grab a coffee and Cosmo grabs his big green bone and together we enjoy some of the best five hours of television all year!

This year marks the 11th year of the telecast of the National Dog Show presented by Purina, which means Cosmo and I have watched the show together every year since its broadcast debut. (Cosmo was just 13 weeks old for the airing of the first show in 2002!)
Two new AKC-recognized breeds, the Russell Terrier and Treeing Walker Coonhound, will make their television and major-event debuts at this years event, where more than 170 breeds vie for “Best in Show” honors in the Kennel Club of Philadelphia competition.
The holiday special airs Thanksgiving Day at noon - 2 p.m. in all time zones and follows the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade on NBC. An encore presentation of the dog show will air on NBC in primetime on Friday from 8-10 p.m. ET.
