Malachy, a Pekingese, won Best in Show at the 136th annual Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, Tuesday night, at Madison Square Garden in New York. http://www.mercurynews.com/breaking-news/ci_19969851
My wife and I watched part of the show on television, but we ran out of gas before it was time for Best in Show. I was rooting for the Doberman, a VERY classy dog, but never in a million years did I figure I would wake up this morning to find that a little ball of over-combed fluffy dog hair with two eyes and a fat tongue had won first prize in the “Super Bowl” of dog shows.
What about the Doberman, the Irish setter, Dachshunds, whippet, Norwegian elkhound, dalmatian, shepherds, sheepdog, pointers, boxer … and all the other hounds, toys, non-sporting, herding, and working dogs and terriers? You know, dogs that look like dogs?
Yeah, I know. That’s the way with any contest I guess. Somebody’s got to win. But a little ball of dog hair?
What do you think? /Gary
