The 140th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show

If you’re in New York City today, head to midtown for this year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. This is the 140th year of the show, with more than 2800 dogs competing for top honors.

I took my grandchildren, Jude and Truman, to the show yesterday. The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show is one of the few “benched” shows in this country - entered dogs are required to remain in assigned areas when not in the ring, so spectators could meet the breeds and talk to their owners - it's a wonderful way to learn about the many different types of dogs and their temperaments, as well as their feeding and grooming requirements.

The “Best In Show” competition takes place tonight at New York’s Madison Square Garden, but you can also watch it LIVE at 8pm ET on USA.
