Dog lovers from around the country will head to Memphis for the ninth annual St. Jude Showcase of Dogs to be held Oct. 8 through Oct. 10, 2004. The event, which is the only one of its kind in North America, is designed to celebrate the life of dogs and raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
 
The three-day canine extravaganza will feature an all-breed dog show, flyball tournament, agility and obedience competitions, as well as demonstrations highlighting the work of therapy dogs, search and rescue dogs and canine narcotic officers. Spectators may also visit the numerous booths and exhibits featuring pet products and collectibles.
 
Since its inception in 1995, Showcase has welcomed about 200,000 attendees from around the country and, more importantly, has raised more than $200,000 to help St. Jude continue its search for cures for childhood catastrophic diseases.
 
Hollywood Pet Star, the Greater Shelby Kennel Club and Tupelo Kennel Club are sponsors for this year's St. Jude Showcase of Dogs. For more information, please visit www.showcaseofdogs.org or call 1-800-238-6030.
