My sister and I took the day off yesterday and went to Westminster.
We got to Madison Square Garden at about 8:30 in the morning and got to stand on the floor to watch the Cavaliers and whole-color ETs. We were right there, standing in the first row behind all the privileged people who had ring-side seats.
We got to meet and pet an adorable English Toy (King Charles) boy from a Pennsylvania breeder. The dog didn't place but was adorable. Here he is with his breeder. I think his name is Bugsy:
Here are some other pics. All taken without a flash so they could be clearer but this will give you an idea!
English Toys ... (we arrived to late to see the Blenheim & Tris):
Cavaliers were brought in in 3 groups, and then they narrowed down the best of those groups in one final group. I didn't take pictures of all the groups and we didn't have a program, so not sure who all I saw:
This girl was handling this tri. She did such a good job considering her age! To be showing at Westminster that young .... can you imagine???
There were 2 or 3 rubies. I am pretty sure this is Graham, the one from Atlanta who we got to pet afterwards. He was really gorgeous ... (I could never shoot the camera in time to get his face, so you get to see his back side!)
You might recognize this Tri of Janet York's who won Best of Breed:
This will give you an idea of how packed it was!
Now don't you just feel like you were there?
