WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- If you're a dog lover then Legion Stadium was the place for you to be today.
Pets pounced into the Port City today all with dreams of winning the coveted title of "Best in Show".

The event was organized by the Hanover Kennel Club an organization started in the 1930's. Today's show was a confirmation show where dogs have to meet high standards set by the American Kennel Club. The dogs must come as close to those standards as possible. In all, there were about 120 breeds of dogs at the show.

The chairman of the dog show says these shows seem to keep getting more and more popular.

"A lot of the people who come here come back year after year after year and they say it's because we have such a nice show and it's like it used to be in the old days." said Chairman John Boozer. "Everything is relaxed and comfortable and friendly. Our club works real hard to make sure that everyone has a good time."

Boozer says he got involved with dog shows many, many years ago because of his passion for dogs.
