Westminster Winners Week Day One: Guess the Year

February 21, 2015

I’m about half-way on vacation this week. I’m going to be teaching some classes, but they’re in Hawaii, so I’m counting it as vacation. I thought it might be fun to set up a game that will run while I’m gone.

I’ve dug out some photos from the Westminster archives. Each day, 5 of the photos will appear on the blog. Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to guess which year is pictured. Extra points if you can name any details, such as the name or breed of the dog or the name of the owner. (And these are points in the sense that “Whose Line Is It Anyway” gives points – they don’t matter.)
