SHOW PATROL

January 10, 2012|By Curt Wagner | RedEye

After all the disturbing news in Chicago about pit bull attacks, it's nice to see responsible dog owners and the athletic pooches they have trained to participate in the Olympic-style events at the 14th annual Purina Incredible Dog Challenge National Finals.

NBC will air the Finals, which took place in St. Louis in October, at 4 p.m. Jan. 14. The network provided this teaser clip of dogs from around the world competing in events such as Dog Diving, Freestyle Flying Disc, 30-Weave Pole Race, Jack Russell Hurdles and Agility. During the finals, a Belgian Malinois named Vhoebe (in photo) broke the world record for Dog Diving with a dive of 31 feet, 8 inches.
