National Dog Show 2014 Results: Nathan the Bloodhound Wins Best in Show

It was a very jowly Thanksgiving, as Nathan the Bloodhound took home Best In Show at the National Dog Show.

Nathan licked pretty much everybody possible, including NBC's Mary Carillo. He had won Best in Group at the Westminster Dog Show, but hadn't taken the top prize. He's a rare winner from the popular breed, as the bloodhound had never won at the National Dog Show and still has yet to win in the 100-plus years of Westminster.

The winners of each group were:

Hound group: Bloodhound

Herding group: Bearded collie

Working group: Samoyed

Terrier group: Smooth fox terrier

Toy group: Affenpinscher

Sporting group: Gordon setter

Non-sporting breeds: French bulldog

For the most part the dog show went off without a hitch ... except for the one part where a miniature pinscher got away from its handler and made a run for it. We've never seen that one before, and the handler did not exactly handle it well.
