There is nothing like being at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Here are some photos from the show on Valentine's Day, 2/14/06 during the Corgi judging and in the benching area. Westminster is a benched dog show. Benching means that all the dogs that are entered must stay in their little benching area until a specific time. This gives everyone who visits the dog show an opportunity to get up close and personal with all of the Champion dogs. It is an exhausting day for the exhibitors but so worth the effort. Bridget loved getting her picture taken all day long and meeting all of the children especially. She flirted with anyone who had popcorn and succeeded quite often in getting some.
The 'green carpet' is a wee bit more crowded during the day at breed judging than you see on TV in the evening during Groups!
