I have usually done the pound puppy thing most of my life and do support the Humane Society on an annual basis. I think what is different about Westminster is the announcing....it is really great for learning about the breeds...like you say.

I watch the dog show too and I loved the puppy bowl last year. I hope its on again this year. All dogs are awesome, regardless of kind. By the way there are rescue groups for every breed so if anyone wants a purebred dog they can get one and save a life at the same time. It seems that lots of people are unaware of that fact and think they have to go to a dog breeder or pet store. I never had a dog when I was growing up and then I adopted a chinese shar pei from my friend's rescue group and I became an obsessed dog person. Some idiot paid over $1,000 for the dog as a puppy and then couldnt deal b/c puppies arent trained (Duh!)and then dumped the dog outside of a Pet Smart store, and it then ended up at the pound where it was gonna be curtains! Then the pound called my friend's rescue group and they saved the dog. Now this pup is named Millie Martini and she lives with me in my tiki lair and helps me sell stuff on ebay and we donate ALL of our auction proceeds to various animal rescue groups and to the leukemia society. Dogs rule!!!

Yes! Good point. As long as people are careful to pick a dog that's right for them so it doesn't end up in (or back in) a shelter, that's all that matters. They all rule.

I "wiki'd" these dogs and noticed that as I was reading the descriptions of the dogs to myself, inside my head it actually sounded like the PA announcer at Westmenster. Same accent, same lilt.

Very good then...you should apply...ya never know when these old geezers are gonna kick it. Interesting how they carry on the same voice of the dead.

I actually like the droan of their narration...probably explains why I hate football with the announcers screaming and acting "all that" and everything.

I typically root for the dogs with personality....kinda that "we're havin' fun now" attitude...and I prefer hair to a smooth coat but ya never know how the show is going to go...the dogs are all so wonderful. I'll be glued to the idot box for this.

Marked on my calendar! Thanks! I usually have no idea when these things are coming and just randomly come across it when it's at least halfway over.

This thread reminds me of "Best in Show" One of my favorite movies of all time!
The clueless commentator had some of the funniest lines in cinema history and the rest of the cast including the dogs,was brilliant.

Bummer...looks like they are only doing the live TV coverage, so it did not show at 8pm tonight and will not be on tomorrow night at 8pm either. It is showing during the daytime. ARGH!!! That means I will miss it this year. I am royally pissed. Had I known the constant announcements of an 8pm showing were incorrect I would have tried to tape it. USA!!!!! Way to go jerks.
