I love going to dog shows. They are nothing like you see on TV. They are much cooler! For dog lovers, this is Nirvana. And for families thinking about getting a dog, a great way to decide what breed to get. Bet you didn't think of that!

The Hickories Circuit Dog Show, presented by Susque-Nango Kennel Club and the Tioga County Kennel Club starts tomorrow and runs through Sunday at the Apalachin Fireman's Field Days Grounds.

It runs from 8:30 til 4 each day (rain or shine) and you get to see almost one thousand dogs and over 100 different breeds. You can even pet the dogs, if you ask nicely first.

Make a day of it with the family. There will be plenty of dog related vendors and shopping plus food and drinks. Admission is only $5 per car.

The proceeds go to a great cause; the Southern Tier Police Canine Association. For more info, click here.
