WESTMINSTER DOG SHOW U.S.A
Madison Square Garden New York
This legendary dog show is for champion dogs only. It has been going strong since the 1870s and is the second longest continuously held sporting event in the United States, just one year behind the Kentucky Derby. Here the greatest collection of dogs assembles each year before the audience and the judges. More than 2,500 champions compete in 162 different breed and variety rings and the winners go through to the Best In Show competition. In the dog show world, this represents the pinnacle of achievement. The event is the doggy equivalent of the Super Bowl and Academy Awards combined into one. Established in 1877, The Westminster Kennel Club is an American institution, recognised beyond doubt for its prestige and its contribution to the world of purebred dogs . This year is the 130th show and takes place on the 12th and 13th February
bedlingtonpictures will be devoting the next few days to photos of Bedlingtons who have won Best of Breed, the Group or taken the title of Best In Show at this prestigious event.
