Back in French. This is starting to get just a wee bit ridiculous.
Congratulations to the Westminster Kennel Club BEST IN SHOW, the Kerry Blue named Mick! He's a lovely dog, and he had wonderful poise. Indeed, his poise was rivalled only by the crowd favorite last night, which was Dallas the German Shepard.
Personally I was rooting for Bunny the Ibizan Hound, who was a gorgeous individual. But alas, she did not win. It was the first time that an Ibizan won Best in Group, though, so I was appeased.
All these dogs have fancy 'official' names and regular 'everyday' names. The official names are usually 'Sir Canis of the White Mountains in the Land of Golden Chickens' or 'Mistress of the Slowly Smoking Night' or something along those lines. Bunny's official name was 'Playmate of the Year'. This, and her everyday name, was because she has a marking on her haunch that looks just like the Playboy bunny symbol. Hence the names. I laughed.
OK, here are the Best in Group winners from two days ago again, and last night's winners as well, for your own personal enjoyment:
-Working: Josh the Newfoundland
-Terrier: Mick the Kerry Blue
-Toy: a Pekingese (I forget its name)
-Non-Sporting: Mike the Standard Poodle
-Sporting: Jester the Brittany
-Hound: Bunny the Ibizan Hound
-Herding: Dallas the German Shepard
And of course Best in Show was the Kerry Blue.
You can see pictures of Mick, and of all of the other winners at the Westminster Kennel Club. I highly suggest you check them out.
The dog show is good times.
OK, that's about all I've got for now.
