Of the four groups showing tonight – Hound, Terrier, Non-Sporting, and Herding – three of the four pooches that captured Best in Group at the AKC/Eukanuba National Championship have now captured their breed competitions at Westminster, too. That means, in addition to the other fabulous breeds included in those four groups, we'll see some familiar faces again tonight! Charmin, the Sealyham Terrier, that won both the Terrier and Best in Show title has captured the Sealyham spot, Geneva that captured the Herding group title will be the German Shepherd we see, and über-cute Uno, this 15-in. Beagle who won the Hound group, will be our Beagle du jour. Congratulations to those three pooches, and all the others that will be measuring up to the standards – I'll be updating as the show goes on, so check back on PetSugar tonight! In the meantime, if you're curious where little Uno is getting his exercise, read more.
When you spend hours and hours washing, grooming, pruning, and preening a pup, you certainly don't want him to get all messed up before show time! The nearby Hotel Pennsylvania opens their doors to the many doggies and handlers by converting function space into what's likely the largest indoor pet spa in all of New York – adorable little Uno gets his exercise on one of the treadmills (there's also indoor potty stations set up) so his shiny coat and clean paws don't get soiled from the weekend snow – and current freezing temps – in the Big Apple.
