Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show 2015 BTS Photos

The 139th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show concluded this week with Missy P, the 15-inch Beagle, winning Best in Show. Here are some photos from behind the scenes at this year’s annual event in New York City.

The atmosphere backstage was pretty intense. I think the dog show is more for the owners, handlers and breeders than for the dogs to be really honest. Dogs are groomed to look “pretty” but we all know that the dogs couldn’t care less if their coat is blow dried to perfection. They just want to company and attention of their owners.

And don’t get me started with the competitive nature of human beings. There was a group of Europeans in front of me who were so upset that their Wirehaired Vizsla did not win the inaugural best of breed at the show. They basically called the winner “ugly.” What a shame.
