It's the group closest to my heart, the hodge-podge Non-Sporting pups! Of course, no Boston Terriers placed in the top four – North says robbed as usual! – but I do see two other smooshies up there, including an Annabelle lookalike.Between the 18 pups that don't quite fit into any of the other six groups, which of these dogs captured the title?

Terriers, the winningest group of all, may be so successful based on their breeding! Meant to be always on their toes, these pooches are little showoffs in the ring. Playing into the spunky doggies, judge Peter Green made crazy squeaking and quacking noises – he sure knows how to get a reaction! Regardless of his antics, and the pups' responses, do you think Charmin won this group again? Find out when you read more
As usual, the first group we saw at the big show was the Hound group. Even though Uno is now retired (yet still making his rounds all over NYC . . . and the country for that matter), I was curious to see what pups would come out on top this year around. Between the speedy "sight" hounds and the great sniffing "scent" hounds, as long as you're not saving the results on your TiVo, find out who came out on top when you read more
So big, wrinkled, and smooshy to boot, say hello to newest breed to be entered in the Westminster Dog Show. Although originally classified into three varieties, the Parisian, the Toulouse and the Bordeaux depending on the region of France and the jobs they were required to do, today this breed's known simply as the Dogue de Bordeaux (or even more simply as the French Mastiff).
The fawn colored working dogs weigh in over 100 pounds and serve as good guard dogs as well as attached and affectionate companions to a master. Now I was fairly certain I had never seen one of these pups before until I did a bit more research. Now, I'm positive that I'm not the only one who has spotted this breed in a classic film.
