PICK YOUR DAY, VALENTINES DAY OR DOG DAY?

All those dog lovers are in luck this year as they wouldn’t have to spend on their girlfriends. Yes folks, we are talking about the grand Westminster Dog Show 2012. It might sound shocking to you, but this year you can either pamper your girlfriends or admire the beautiful creatures showing up at the dog show from different parts of the country.

The journey has already started for some, as hundreds of show dogs along with their trainer and owners are arriving in the New York. This year the Westminster Kennel Club 136th Annual Dog Show will be at Madison Square Garden on 13 and 14 February.  If you didn’t know, you still have the time to cancel up on your Valentine reservations, because the best part is this year six more breeds have been included bringing the number of breeds competing to 185.

The six breeds include American English coonhound, Cesky terrier, Entlebucher mountain dog, Finnish lapphund, Norwegian Lundehund and the Xoloitzcuintli. If you are a fan of one of these don’t keep your expectations too high, as the minimal time it takes a new breed to enter and win the best show is 27 years. Bet that is a lot and unfortunately the breeds that have never won a Westminster include the Labrador retriever, golden retriever and Chihuahua, but keep your fingers crossed, you never who takes away the show this year.
