The annual Houston World Series of Dog Shows happened this past weekend from Wednesday through Sunday.

Hair Balls decided to get in on the action and give some pups a chance to take a break from the high-stress competitions. We asked their owners to tell us about their lives outside of grooming and showing.

These 8 "aww"-inducing creatures are more than just show dogs. They are the unsung beauties of Texas.

Name: Rupert (photo above)

Breed: Chinese crested

Hometown: Alvin, TX

Personal life: When Rupert isn't at a dog show, he's listening to children from local schools read to him and helping them overcome their anxiety. He's a certified therapy dog.

Quirks: Rupert's owner thinks he's pretty normal, but looking at his precious face leaves us begging to differ.

Cats? Never been around them.
