Still reeling from biggest pooch parade of the year? NBC and the National Dog Show want you to relive your fond, fur-filled memories in their new Facebook game, Dog Show Friends. Designed by NBC Sports and 4mm Games, Dog Show Friends allows players to adopt a puppy, nurture and train for dog shows in competition with their friends. The game is also sponsored by Purina Dog Food, which is made crystal clear throughout, and hosted by an eerily accurate rendition of John O'Hurley.

According to Kevin Monaghan, SVP and Managing Director of NBC Sports Digital Media, "The game will allow our community of viewers to continue the National Dog Show experience long after 'Best in Show' has been awarded." Actor John O'Hurley adds, "Social gaming is fast becoming an important part of our lives and the entertaining world of show dogs – virtual or not – is a perfect fit."
