Every dog has its day. This expression came true for around 300 dogs of 42 breeds from various corners of the country during a dog show organized at Yadavindra Public School (YPS) on Sunday by the Mohali Kennel Club under the aegis of Kennel Club of India (KCI).

Dogs with the price tag, ranging from Rs 3,000 to Rs 3 lakh, showed off their pedigree in front of Robert LT Dawson of Philippines and Jagteswar Singh of India despite the winter chill. Mohali SSP GPS Bhullar and Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) leader Babbi Badal were present.

Among the breeds that walked the ramp included the small-structured Chihuahua to the fiercest Tibetan Mastiff (also known as Gaddi)-- Rottweiler, Pit Bull, Lhasa Apso, Newfoundland, Great Dane, English mastiff, Pug, Labrador, English pointer, Basset hound, Afghan hound, German shepherd, Beagle, Dashound, Boxer, Golden Retriever, Cocker Spaniel, Saint Bernard and Miniature Pinscher.

The participants were cheered by around 15,000 visitors, especially youngsters. A Newfoundland breed dog owned by Kulbir Singh of Khanna in Punjab was adjudged the best, while a Lhasa Apso owned by Chandigarh-resident Vinod Kumar alias Sonu, won the top honours in dog-trainer category. Most of the prizes in other categories were bagged by Ludhiana-based breeders.

Terming the event to be north India's biggest dog show, Mohali Kennel Club president GS Sandhu claimed that despite the cold weather, they received huge response. Residents of Kanpur, Meerut, Noida, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Uttaranchal and others arrived to show off their pets.
