AUGUSTA — Approximately 1,250 dogs were bathed, groomed and showing off their best posture at the Sussex County Fairgrounds last weekend. They were there to participate in the two-day Palisades Kennel Club AKC All Breed Dog Show. The show, which was Friday and Saturday, Oct. 14 and 15, drew dogs of about 150 different breeds from all over the country. There were winners for each breed. Those winners competed in one of seven groups (such as sporting, working, toy) and then the group winners went on to compete in Best in Show. On Friday, the winner was a cocker spaniel, on Saturday a Xolo took the title. Xolos are also called Mexican Hairless and are new to this competition.
