Stumpy, Stocky and Low to the Ground Sweeps up at Westminster. This year’s Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show was filled with excitement and controversy. For the first time the newly admitted breed of Dogue de Bordeaux was seen walking the green carpet in MSG. There was also some confusion and controversy over the disqualification of a Cairn Terrier just as it was about to be judged (it was later found out that the judge and the handler had worked together – therein disqualifying the dog due to a conflict of interest).
In the end the overall Best in Show award was taken home by “Stump” the Sussex Spaniel. At 10 years old Stump is the oldest winner of Best in Show in the 133 year history of the Westminster Dog Show.
After waddling his way to the Best in Show podium – it sounds like Stump will be getting some extra Valentine’s Day spoiling. We’d suggest his handler check out Dara’s Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for some ideas!
