via CBC News – World – Ont. Bouvier aims to be Westminster’s top dog.

Those of us who follow dog shows will be looking forward to The Westminster Dog Show. It is a show where only champions can compete and will be held on February 15th and 16th in New York, at Madison Square Gardens.

It is the 134th annual show.

The show will introduce 3 new breeds:- Irish Red and White Setter, the Norwegian Buhund, and the Phrenean Shepherd.

And the number one favourite going into the show is a Scottish Terrier, Sadie. She carries a No 1 ranking but we know that anything can happen at Westminster. She has won 100 Best in Show titles.

Terriers always seem to do well at Westminster. They animate easily and the crowd loves them.

The well known David Frei says fewer than 30 dogs have 100 Best in Show wins, so that Scottish Terrier is very strong.

And there is my favourite breed coming forward in Demetrius, the Bouvier Des Flandres and the other Bouvs. competing in the Herding Group. Over the past few years, the Bouvier is regarded as a top ranking breed in the Herding Group as it has been winning or placing second in the Herding Group.

I enjoy the Westminster site and the videos. I have bought their dvds on occasion and the occasion being that the Bouvier Des Flandres does very well in the Herding Group and the show.

I love the handling skills and the presentation of the dogs and the show.

And although I do love my own breed, I think the Terriers are a great group to watch and they will always be strong in shows. I like the coated ones like Sadie.

Share and Enjoy !
