Divine doggies

Dog shows are for more than displaying your best friend’s beauty and grace — they help keep your pup mentally and physically challenged. The American Kennel Club shows all over the country by local clubs are fun, too, for canines and humans.

Rio Grande Kennel Club’s show at Expo New Mexico began Friday and continues today and Tuesday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the public is invited to see how hundreds of dogs fare. The conformation trials, in which dogs are judged on how well they conform to breed standards, are being held in the Manuel Lujan building, and obedience and rally trials are in the Creative Arts building.
