The 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Part Two

Established in 1877, The Westminster Kennel Club is America's oldest organization dedicated to the sport of purebred dogs.

This year, the club's annual show expanded to three-days to accommodate the more than 2600 dogs that competed for “Best in Show.” Dogs are exhibited in seven different groups, organized by the original work that each breed was developed to do. The seven groups include Herding, Sporting, Non-Sporting, Working, Hounds, Terriers, and Toy breeds. I attended the show on the third day of competition designated for Sporting and Working breeds.

Here are more photos from the 144th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show - enjoy.

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.

Launching "The Everyday System" with California Closets

Great news! I am so excited to announce a new partnership with California Closets and the launch of The Everyday System, a fantastic collection of high-quality modular components that can be configured to create hundreds of storage solutions for your home.

I am so proud of what we’ve developed and designed. This new system includes storage solutions for every space - the closet, the home office, the craft room, the pantry and more. And the eco-friendly finishes are all inspired by products I use in my very own homes. The Everyday System storage components are versatile and beautiful. Plus, because we’ve made the units so easy to install, they can be moved from room to room, or home to home, depending on your storage needs over time. California Closets has been a leader in premium and luxury space-management for more than four decades - I know you'll love all the new and innovative offerings in this Collection.
