And the winner is . . . .

Westminster Kennel Club dog show is always very interesting to watch but it's not 'real' like a national specialty show is because Westminster depends on who gets their entries in the quickest since entries are extremely limited. And the kennel club restricts dogs to those that are already Champions which by virtue of the title infers some level of higher quality (although not necessarily because there is a lot of politics that go on).  Anyway, that's not to detract from the dogs that were shown and the one that won.  Congratulations to the Vizsla winner - Ch Cinnabars Aldebaran Epiphany - Best of Breed 2011.

Unfortunately the Vizsla did not win Best in Sporting Dog group and therefore did NOT proceed to Best in Show in 2011.  Here's a video of the judging - unfortunately no subtitles or voice-overs to inform you of their registered names as they are being presented. PS NONE of my dogs were entered.

  1. I remember watching the 2007 Sporting Group and a Vizsla placed second. If not for Diamond Jim, the super popular favorite that won the show, a Vizsla probably would have made it to Best In Show.

    Thanks for the video, I hadn't seen it yet.
