In case you missed it (as I did), you can still see the Rescue Dog Show on the Hallmark Channel’s website or on their app. Categories included such characteristics as Best in Snoring, Best in Underbite, Best in Wiggle Butt, and Best in Kissing.

No spoilers here, but it’s an event you don’t want to miss!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

February 13, 2018

Wrapping up coverage of this year’s granddaddy of all dog shows, the Best in Show winner for Westminster 2018 is…(drum roll please!)… [Read more]

Westminster 2018: Best in Show Line-up

February 13, 2018

To review: the competitors for Best in Show tonight are:

Hound Group: Borzoi “Lucy”
Toy Group: Pug “Biggie”
Non-Sporting Group: Bichon Frise “Flynn”
Herding Group: Border Collie “Slick”
Sporting Group: Sussex Spaniel “Bean”
Working Group: Giant Schnauzer “Ty”
Terrier Group:. Norfolk “Winston”

My pick? I’m torn between the sentimental favorite, the Pug Biggie, who is being shown in place of his uncle who died last summer, and the posing Sussex Spaniel Bean, who stands up on his hind feet for a sliver of liver every time he gets a chance.

But if I were a gambler, I’d bet on the Borzoi.
