Kings Dog Show

When: Sat., Dec. 26, 8:30 p.m. 2015



Great news for all Triangle hounds interested in awards: You actually stand a chance this year during Kings' third-annual dog show. For each of the first two runs, Rudy—an adorable and trick-happy mutt belonging to Michelle Scaraglino and Matt Watson—owned the contest, even overcoming the hijinks of a controversial contestant last year to win again. But this year, Rudy isn't entering, opting instead for the comforts of the Paws of Fame. And so 15 other area dogs will have their chance for a supreme treat. To pick a winner, a panel of three judges delivers a composite score based on the animal's "dogsonality," its backstory, its cute factor and its ability to stun with at least one stunt. The event's producer, Kings booking agent Michael Perros, was inspired by a Thanksgiving night spent in, watching The National Dog Show—and, well, probably his own pedigree. "My last name is Perros," he says. "I feel like it's my destiny to be a dog show producer." Proceeds go to the SPCA. 8:30 p.m., $8, 14 W. Martin St., Raleigh, 919-833-1091, —Grayson Haver Currin
