The grooming preparations are very intensive for breeds such this Maltese named Jewels. Here expression might be a bit less enthusiastic than the above poodle:

These dogs are groomed so much that I feel some people get unrealistic expectations of how their pure breed pet should look. I mean, this boxer is having its ears shaved:

I never knew you had to do something like that for boxers. Do you go to these lengths to groom your pure breed (non show) dogs?

This year in addition to the dog show there was an agility competition. The first Westminster Masters Agility Championship took place on Saturday, and was open to not only pure bred but also mixed and half breed dogs.

The winner was Kelso, a 7 year old Border Collie:

Fun Facts:

1. Westminster is the second longest running sporting competition in the USA, second only to the Kentucky Derby.

2. The show predates the invention of the light bulb and automobile.

3. 25 men have been elected president since the show began, and 12 states have joined the Union.

4. Only once has the offspring of a Best in Show winner been able to also win Best in Show – the English Springer Spaniel Ch. Salilyn N’ Erin’s Shameless in 2000 whose sire (Ch. Salilyn’s Condor) won in 1993.

5. Two new breeds were recognized and allowed to compete at the show this year the Russel Terrier and the Treeing Walker Coonhound. The decision to recognize a new breed is based on interest from the breed’s active parent club along with sufficient numbers and geographic distribution in this country.

Russel Terrier


The Russel is a working terrier, a pack hunter, which is known for its small size and unique chest which is compressible to allow for efficient hunting below ground. These dogs are intelligent, loyal, and athletic. The breed comes in three coat varieties – smooth, broken, and rough – which is usually white with spots. Visit the breeds official website at theartc.org.

Treeing Walker Coonhound


This Coonhound was bred to track and tree racoons, which it is ideally suited with endurance and drive. The breed is intelligent, social, and confident. The breed was developed from the Walker Foxhound mixed with other hounds, and retains the coloring of the Walker. Visit the breeds official website at the akc.org.

Do not forget to watch the show tonight and tomorrow night on TV, or take a look at the live stream at westminsterkennelclub.org.
