Sadie the Scottish Terrier wins!

Did you stop watching the men's figure skating in the Winter Olympics to tune in for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show?

We are big dorks and tape it each year... We enjoy watching all the different breeds and hearing the announcer give a little summary about each. Tho' the announcer seemed to have a lot of trouble this year - more so than usual and that was distracting. Still fun to watch.
(funny aside - we were visiting a neighbor around Westminster time long ago. Furry Husband and I were joking and I imitated the announcer saying something about "The Little Captain.... " which is what Schipperke means in it's home country's language.
Our neighbor turned beet red and thought I was announcing my pet name for Furry Husband's... his... well his.... cough... ahem - raised eyebrows. I had to explain I was not speaking of bedroom affairs but I was talking about a dog breed. I'm not sure she ever believed me...)
It's pretty amazing to think that each one of those breeds was developed and bred with a purpose in mind and the dogs can be SO incredibly different.

Ok, ok, so I fell asleep during the Working Group... it's why we tape it!

I caught a bit of it, but since it looked like they were just getting started, I switched the channel...and forgot all about it. I have a short attention span these days.

Hilarious aside! You'd think she would have pretended not to have eavesdropped.

The Westie should have won( I am slightly biased). But since it didn't the fact that a black westie(Scottie) won is fine by me.

Cheryl - yeah, we still laugh about it. I don't know any man who'd want it called the LITTLE anything!

La Belette Rouge - yes, we all have our favorites!
