So I know this happened over a week ago, but we up here in the great white North didn’t seem to get access to the show till this weekend. Or maybe I just missed it o.O. I have never really watched a show before, honestly, I guess because I never really caught it. Though there was something that struck me odd about the show, the crowd’s favorite seemed to be the Affenpinscher- who won, and the Old English Sheepdog- who came in 2nd.
Every time they were shown the crowd went wild.Now I realize in that crowd there is a lot of dog experts, but I also know there is mostly just dog lovers. It also seemed clear that they were cheered because, a) the Affenpinscher is so fricken cute, and unique looking and b) the OESD looked like the cutest fluffiest teddy bear. So when the final judge declared the winner’s and they just so happened to be the crowd’s favorite, it made me think, what do they even judge on… Now I am not saying they aren’t deserving of course (I couldn’t help a inside cheer for these two cuties as well) but it was just a thought.. Has anyone else seen it? Anyways the main thing I wanted to focus on was their names!
Now, it is always fun to watch every breed get introduced, but since I can’t put 100+ pictures on here, well I could I guess….. But I decided to focus on the group winners.
Hound group: Day 1: Pandora’s Box (American foxhound)
Toy group Day 1: Banana Joe (Affenpinscher)….pretty darn cute
Herding Day one: Bugaboo Picture Perfect– Reserve winner! (I.need.to.hug.now!)(Old English Sheepdog)
Non sporting group Day 1: Honour to Pillowtalk (Bichon Frises)
Sporting group Day 2: Rip snorter silver charm (wow…) (German whitehaired)
Working group day 2: Claircreek Impression de Matisse (Portugese waterdog)
Terrier Day 2 : Slyfox’s sneek a peak (Fox terrier)- My personal favortie if you can see why
Now obviously, for most of them anyways this is not their “domestic name” ,The fox terrier for example was often called simply “Adam” in the show. But my question is…. if your dog was somehow in the Westminster kennel club (even if he is a mix!) what would his official name be?!
Signing off from Lea and Kirby…or should I say Lea and Monsieur du PDA (pretty darn cute) 😄
Oh man! I almost forgot to mention about the wonderful award Clowie at Clowie’s corner gave me! It is quite impressive! And I am so honoured, thanks Clowie, it will appear on my right-side of beautiful award badges!
I pass this award to Dogdaz,
