The strange world of the Westminster Kennel Club
Here are our favorite things about the dog show, which is based on looking at lots of pictures of bizarrely-groomed dogs and reading 1.5 articles about it:
- Afghan hounds in Florida-retiree tracksuits and sassy kerchiefs (this one is named Ike)
- The wacky registered names that show dogs have in addition to their regular names that their owners call them. The registered names refer to the kennel club they were bred at and begin with "Ch", like Ch. Colsidex Seabreeze Perfect Fit, Ch. Fuzzy Farm Devil Made Me Do It, Ch. Smash JP Win A Victory, and Ch. Surrey Spice Girl (a miniature poodle, of course.)
- The Times' coverage of the dog show, which is proudly located in the Sports section.
