For all you dog lovers (and lots of birders are), the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show final is on tonight from 8-11 pm on USA channel. Troy, (Ch. Aberlee Storm Force), who is the grandfather of our puppy, Phoebe, is entered at Westminster. He is a high energy bundle of handsomeness with personality plus, who has done much winning and produced many champions.
At Westminster, the winner for each breed, then competes to become the winner of the dog group it belongs to. For example, the best of breed of the Pembroke Welsh Corgis, then competes to become the winner of the Herding Group of dogs. There are 7 dog groups: Working, Terrier, Toy, Non-Sporting, Sporting, Hound, and Herding. The best dog from each of these groups then competes in the finale to become the Best in Show.
Phoebe will be sitting on the couch with us watching the show and rooting for Troy. Go Troy!!
