For the 134th year, The Westminster Kennel Annual Dog Show will crown the most desirable purebred dog as Best in Show. Known as the Superbowl of the dog world, this is a landmark event for all dog lovers as it is America’s oldest and most prestigious dog show.
A limited 2,500 champion-only dogs compete for the coveted prize and this year there are some brand new additions to the mix. Three new breeds have been allowed to compete for the first time: Irish Red and White Setter, Norwegian Buhund, and Pyrenean Shepherd.
Will the Sussex Spaniel “Stump” defend the title or will a pug or newbie Pyrenean Shepherd grab the first prize? The only way to find out is at the Garden for two days in Manhattan.
