Good dog! Westminster Dog Show has chosen the winner

TERRYTOWN, NY ( Associated Press) — Best Dog will be crowned at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show Wednesday night, where entries include an NFL-affiliated French Bulldog, Bloodhound, German Shepherd, Maltese and three other finalists. be elected.

Of the more than 3,000 dogs entered, only seven will make it to the top spot at the most prestigious dog show in the United States. The show, usually held in the winter at New York’s Madison Square Garden, moved to the suburban estate of Lyndhurst last year and this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Each finalist represents a different “group” or type of dog, such as hounds or terriers.

Westminster is often referred to as the Super Bowl of American Dog Shows, and French bulldog Winston is aiming to make it one for co-owner Morgan Fox, a quarterback who just signed with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Fox, who also played for the Los Angeles Rams and Carolina Panthers, congratulated Winston on his victory in the semi-finals on Tuesday night.

“Obviously I have to train with him,” added Fox, who also said he had a new understanding of how his parents could watch him play.

Winston, who is currently the number one ranked dog in the country, faces River, a German Shepherd with big wins, and Trumpet, a bloodhound who is descended from the winner of another major show in 2014, the National Dog Show of the Thanksgiving season.

Then there is the Maltese, who clearly aspires to fame: her name is Hollywood.

On Wednesday evening, three more finalists will be selected: a terrier, a sport dog (such as spaniels and retrievers) and a working dog (guard dogs, sled dogs and other large breeds).

Among the contenders is Stryker, a Samoyed who reached the final at Westminster last year and won his breed again on Wednesday morning. After topping the dog rankings last year, Stryker has recently competed in several dog shows “to keep his head in the game,” handler Laura King said.

What makes a snow-white Samoyed shine in competition? “His heart,” said King of Milan, Illinois.

“His charisma comes out when he shows it,” and he complains—out loud—when she’s gone, she said.

Monty, the Giant Schnauzer who reached the semi-finals on Wednesday night, is the son of the 2018 Westminster runner-up dog. Monty, classified as a working dog, loves to work in the yard, which means giving him a soccer ball. She said she was abandoned when curator and co-owner Cathy Bernardine’s husband, Adam, is mowing the lawn.

The other contestant, Ooma, advanced smoothly to the semi-finals on Wednesday. She was the only Chinook to appear. Dredges are the official state dog of New Hampshire, but they are rarely seen across the country.

“I would love to see a couple more” at the Westminster ring, said Ooma breeder, owner and handler Patty Richards of West Haven, Vermont. “Without people to show and breed, we risk losing our breed.”

Brittany Bonnie is Dr. Jessica Sielav’s first show dog, and they didn’t leave with a ribbon on Wednesday. But their collaboration goes beyond the ring.

Bonnie accompanies Sielava to work at her chiropractic practice in Syracuse, New York, where “she really helps people deal with emotional stress,” Sielava said.

She also plans to have her show dog certified as a therapy dog.
