If you’ve been following along today, you know that the following seven dogs lined up for best in show at the 2010 National Dog Show, broadcast on NBC this afternoon.
Sporting Group: Irish Setter
Terriers: American Staffordshire Terrier
Working Dogs: Boxer
Hound Group: Scottish Deerhound
Herding: Australian Shepherd
Non-Sporting Group: Schipperke
Toy Group: Affenpincher
And the best in show winner was: Clooney, the Irish Setter!
BTW, Shame on you NBC, for telling the results before you aired the show. If you watched John O’Hurley on the Today Show on Wednesday, he was talking about how he wanted an Irish Setter to win Best in Show because he thinks they are such pretty dogs. That’s well and fine, until you consider that the show was actually held last weekend, and as the host, of course he knew who had won at that point. That’s pretty under-handed. Once I saw the Setter win the Sporting Group, which was the first group they showed, I wondered if it would end up winning. I thought, “surely they wouldn’t have aired that on the Today Show if he really won,” but sure enough, they did.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
