America's top dog is Rumor! The #GermanShepherd took 'Best in Show' at the 141st #WestminsterDogShow. #WKCDogShow @westminsterkennelclub

Rumor has it - literally. The 141st Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show's Best in Show went to a female German Shepherd from the Herding Group named "Rumor." It's unbelievable," Rumor's owner, Kent Boyles, said Tuesday night just moments after the win was announced at Madison Square Garden in midtown Manhattan Tuesday night.

@RobertClarkphoto While working on a a story on the Evolution of Dogs I was able to set up a portrait studio at the #WestminsterDogshow (across the street in the hotel Pennsylvania.) The idea was to do as many different breeds as possible so that we could illustrate the results of selective breeding, which has lead to the wide variety of dogs species, Dogs have been breed for different reason with the goal of having very specialized results.
Bloodhound is a large scent hound, originally bred for hunting deer, wild boar, and since the Middle Ages for tracking people. Believed to be descended from hounds once kept at the Abbey of Saint-Hubert, Belgium, it is known to French speakers as the Chien de Saint-Hubert. This breed is famed for its ability to discern human scent over great distances, even days later. Its extraordinarily keen sense of smell is combined with a strong and tenacious tracking instinct, producing the ideal scent hound, and it is used by police and law enforcement all over the world to track escaped prisoners, missing people, lost children and lost pets.

Rumor, who won Best in Show at the 2017 #WestminsterDogShow, visited the @uscapitol today. Great dog, and I hear she’s a @packers fan, too.


#waybackwednesday to 1948 Westminster: the first time a Bedlington Terrier took a group first, much less Best in Show. But Ch. Rock Ridge Night Rocket (here clutching his trophy for Best American-Bred) did just that. It was a triumph for the dog's prominent owners, the William A. Rockefellers, and his handler, Anthony Neary, who for 35 years had championed the lamb-like breed he thought 'game little dogs' of 'the purest terrier spirit.' The judge Dr. Samuel Milbank took 15 minutes to make his decision, ultimately noting "With the narrowest of skulls, the most perfect of coats, grand expression, a beautiful mover, always alert, he was to me the best dog in the ring." Some have posited Night Rocket experienced one of the most excellent careers of a dog of any breed due to the quality and prestige of the shows he won (including two Morris and Essex wins). Judge Alva Roseberg said "Without reservation, Night Rocket is one of the best I've seen in 38 years of judging." #akcbreedoftheday

Now your pup can have his trophy and eat it too. www.okraandmolly.com

Brushwood's Moxi of Endeavor (Annie's great granddam) owned by Angie Diehl (Nysa Hill), shown by Mandy Clevenger, is one of the top winning AKC whippets in history and will always be loved and remembered by those who knew her as well as those of us that simply admired her outstanding type, beauty and presence. Thank you for sharing this gorgeous picture of Moxi @angiediehl.

Always the center of attention. 😍😘 #westminsterdogshow #chowchow #pilotthechow #missingyou
