Today is the 140th birthday of the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

We never miss it.

Always held in New York City since 1877, the show is a “benched” show.  The dogs are required to be on display in an assigned location or bench for the entire show.

Well, expect when they are bouncing around the arena, getting their hair and nails done, or out in the elimination area.

There are nearly 3,000 dogs in the show, and judging takes two whole days!

We only see the highlights and the winners on TV.

And frankly, I’m not sure I could do two days of dogs.

Although, dogs are good.

I like dogs.

The only other sporting event that has a longer track record is the Kentucky Derby.

May, it’s a month for the records.

So, if you’re looking for a reason to celebrate, a dog’s life will do it!

This year, Rumor has it.

No, Rumor really has it.

The winner’s name was Rumor.

Happy Monday!
