The 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Part One

A Standard Poodle named “Siba” is this year’s top dog, after winning “Best in Show” at the 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

More than 2600 dogs, representing 49 states and 19 other countries, competed for top honors. 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 and handlers. 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. I enjoy going to this show, especially when my own dogs, and dogs I know, are competing.

Over the next couple of days, I will be sharing lots of fun photos from the show - enjoy.
