The big show's already done but I spotted so many cute faces at Westminster this year that I couldn't resist picking some of my favorites for a quiz. See how well you check out . . . and check out these pooches.
I invaded the 2008 World's Ugliest Dog Competition on Friday, and what a whirlwind day it was! It was scorching hot in Petaluma, California, but I braved the heat and, not only got a chance to see the show live, but made friends with a cow, sat in on a sheep show, and, of course, met the World's Ugliest Dog face-to-snout. Take a peek into my day at the Sonoma-Marin Fair, and behind the scenes at the World's Ugliest Dog Competition!
Take the Quiz
We saw many different breeds at Crufts that we didn't see at Westminster and, honestly, even I have trouble keeping them all straight! Can you sniff out the right name for each pictured pooch in a process of elimination? Each question has three choices: a fictional breed name, the name of a similar dog, and the right answer, of course! Is there really a dog called the Xoloitzcuintli or do you think I made that up in a typing frenzy? Test your knowledge (and reasoning skills) in this furry quiz!
Rounding up the groups competing at Crufts this year, this Samoyed Vandreem Imperial Hermioni by Berezniki won the Pastoral group. Caraway Celebrate Life, the Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier, won the Terrier group while a Giant Schnauzer, Jafrak Philippe Olivier, captured the Working group title. Finally it was, "Max," the Beagle (officially called Dialynne Maximus) coming out atop the Hound group. Wow, we saw some beautiful pups this year, did you have a fave from these groups, or the ones we saw last week?
