When the public relations folks from the National Dog Show presented by Purina contacted us about a story on their nationally televised event, we were intrigued. When they offered up an interview with the show’s host, John O’Hurley, we simply couldn’t say no. O’Hurley was gracious enough to talk with us on a variety of subjects, and we think you’ll enjoy reading about the multitalented, dog-loving star.
