EverythingDogBlog #130: Westminster Winners, Day 1
Last night on TV, the following dogs won their Groups:
For the Hounds, GCH Flessner's International S'Cess "Nathan."
In the Toy Group, Classie, a Min Pin (Miniature Pinscher), the top Min Pin of all time.
Among the Non-Sporting breeds, the winner was Ally, a Standard Poodle, in her last show.
And for the Herding Group, Coco, a Cardigan Welsh Corgi. This is the first time a CWC has won Best of Group.
And now, for today!
There are seven groups at dog shows. The first day at Westminster focuses on four groups while today will 'show' the other three groups, breed by breed during the day. In the evening, the breed winners compete for Best in Group (7) and then Best in Show (BIS) of the seven Group winners.
Tune in tonight from 8-11 pm ET on the USA Network for the Group finals of the Sporting Dogs, the Terriers and Working Group. The finals for the junior handlers will be at 7:30 (91 youngsters were entered) and if you turn on your TV around 10 pm, you will see the Final Seven, one of whom will be judged Best in Show!
Aren't these Facebook 'posters' fantastic!
