Win $1,000,000 from Purina Pro Plan

ProPlanOn February 12th and 13th, top dogs from around the world will venture to New York City to compete for the coveted title of Best in Show at the 142nd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented by Purina® Pro Plan®. Only one dog will break through to victory. Who will take the title this year? More than 2800 dogs compete to be named Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, presented by Purina® Pro Plan®. But you only have to correctly pick the 7 Group Winners and the Best in Show Champion for a chance to win $1 Million.†

And just for playing, you could win our daily prize of a year supply of Purina® Pro Plan®! They’re giving away a year supply of Purina® Pro Plan® every day from 01/02/18 – 02/12/18!

Enter here. I would enter, but my picks are ALWAYS abysmal. Regular readers know I never even come close to picking even the right breed, let alone the right dog. I hope you fare better than I would!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog.

Westminster Winner, Rumor, Gives Birth to Eight Puppies!

Westminster Kennel Club is pleased to announce the birth of eight puppies to 2017 big show winner Rumor, the German Shepherd.

Channel 3000 in Madison, Wisconsin has video of the puppies, but wouldn’t let me share it. You can view it on their site.

Owner/Handler Kent Boyles says Rumor is being a great mother to her four baby girls and four baby boys, born in August. Rumor was bred to two dogs, so DNA testing will be required to determine the paternal side of each puppy’s bloodline.

No decision yet on who will raise the pups once they leave Boyles’ Kenlynn German Sheperds kennel, or what their show potential may be.

Congrats to all involved!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
