Nathan, the floppy- jowled , big-eared, giant Bloodhound from Maryland who arguably drew the loudest cheers at this year's Westminster Kennel Club show, almost never made it out to compete. “I thought about not even showing Nathan,” says his co-owner and handler Heather Helmer , who owns and operates Skipton Farms boarding kennel in Queenstown with husband, Zack. “But his other owner called and said she was coming and wanted to watch her dog, so I decided to show him.” Lucky for everyone involved: Nathan won the hound group at the show and came very close to taking Best in Show, where he was a clear audience favorite.

Ruth Ann Ford gently dabbed tears from Rock's eyes as the two waited to have their picture taken. "It's probably from stress," Ford said of Rock - short for Forever Rock Hudson, her 8-month-old papillon that had just won the Best of Winners ribbon for 6- to 9-month-old pups in the Toy Division at the Maryland Kennel Club All Breed Dog Show. "He's doing pretty cool," said Ford, of Osceola Mills, Pa., as she held the tiny white, brown and black puppy in the palms of her hands.

More than 1,800 dogs competed. The top honor - Best in Show - went to Garbh Aerie of Eagle, an Irish wolfhound. The dogs competed in 12 rings against others of the same breed and age.
