Will You Watch Westminster?

Of course, North and I will be tuning in to the 134th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on Feb. 15 and 16 — we never miss it! Even though I'm disappointed that Mario Lopez can't host after all, maybe that would have proven too distracting from the pups?!

Regardless, dog show madness is starting (with the AKC/ Eukanuba National Championship airing this weekend) and I plan to lead up to the big NYC event with breed slideshows and show trivia before covering the winners — will you be watching it as well . . . or just waiting for my recaps?

I should clarify that there are plenty of pet owners too who are members of the local AKC club and do confirmation, agility, rally and obedience because of the bond it strengthens with their dog. Not everyone is a breeder.

I will try and find "Pedigree Dogs: exposed" to see what it is. I'm very active in my local AKC and just about all of the members are hobby breeders who are truly breed fanatics that love their dogs. The dogs all do agility, rally, obedience, and are certified therapy dogs. I'm sure there are some badly treated dogs, all in the name of excellence, but overall the people I meet who compete are doing it because their dog loves it.

I think you should watch Pedigree dogs: exposed, to see your 'properly' bred animals...

I love the dog shows! I think that they strive to maintain the quality of the breeds, unlike what is happening to some poorly bred breeds such as the lab. The lab is so overbred with poor specimens of the breed that it's becoming bigger, less intelligent, and more hyper, rather than having the qualities the breed was treasured for having (loyalty, calm demeanor, intelligence). I think beneficial for people to realize what the breed should be like so that they can recognize poorly bred animals and not be fooled into buying those.

I truly think that the show ring, is rife with inbreeding and health problems, just look at the pug and bulldog.
