its never live to the west coast. your best bet is to watch the video of each breed as it becomes available at westminsterkennelclub.org.

you can also get the group winners the same way, its pretty close to being realtime.

Yeah...have been watching the live feed for some breeds on their site. I know that USA has aired the show (not live) on the same date but in the evening on the West Coast...I have watched it before. Unfortunately their timing on this is not good, plus USA has been advertising an evening showing option.

I am not feeling well today (for real) so am staying home. Luckily I will get to see the opening and closing shows.

The coverage was crazy - it was on at 8pm here on USA, but only for an hour. Then I had to switch over to CNBC. But now the rest is apparently on tonight at 8 on USA, but not on CNBC at all. No wonder I usually miss it!

I agree...the airing this year was not typical. I wrote a note to USA & also to Westminster...whether they listen or not will depend on how many complaints they get.

OK....Beagle not my choice. I would have expected that Poodle or Akita to win. It was a fabulous line up this year though.

ARF ARF ARF ARF ARF!!! Until next year.

Forgot to say...they panned in on James Roday & Maggy Lawson (both from Psych) at the dog show. Way to go...now I love these guys even more. I never miss Psych...it is a great show.

holycrap! Ed made the cut in the Working Group with Barnes the Tibetan Mastiff~ super fantastic, since this is the first year they were eligible to compete at Westminster.

i always cheer for any non-poodle dog. its unfair they get 2 dogs in nonsporting and 1 in toy. same stupid dog, in 3 sizes. meh. bug-eyed freaks.

i wanted the Akita to win, cuz i like the handler.

Yes I think it is neat that the Tibetan Mastiff made it in the cut. Quite an honor for a new breed to be selected, it was a beautiful dog. I had a feeling she would pick him...she was a slow but determined judge. I agree...those Poodles usually piss me off, but the standard one was exquisite. The Akita was far superior to the Beagle. I just don't think that Beagle was a stand out.

I was laughing my head off watching the Neapolitan Mastiff walk...even more of a lumber than the Clumberland!!!

That was a hoot - less of a 'gait' than a lumbering clomp. Congrats to Trader Pup's handler & the Tibetan Mastiff on making to the finals!

My picks win pretty rarely, but it's fun to see most the varieties as they go by, at least (multiple poodles is highly unncessary!)

Vamp ~ im in NYC ~ Trader Pup did not win, Inuk did again. this was an incredibly political statement in the eskie ring. watch the video, if you know about movement, you'll know what happened.

anyways, im having a GREAT time in the Big Apple. it's snowing today.. and there's Sporting, Working and Terriers tonight.
