Behind the Scenes at the 2012 National Dog ShowTake a peek at the pooches competing for Best in Show before the competition airs on Thanksgiving


On a day dedicated to man's best friend, host John O'Hurley still squeezes in time for a very special companion: his 5-year-old son, Will, who joined him at the weekend taping of the National Dog Show Presented by Purina. O'Hurley has hosted the ultimate canine competition (which airs Thursday from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. in all time zones) on NBC since its inception in 2002.
