THE annual Westminster dog show is underway — but not at Madison Square Garden as the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has forced many changes to the treasured canine event.
Results of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show finals — which is being held in Tarrytown, New York — are being determined as three Best in Show finalists have already been named.
Bourbon the whippet, Wasabi the Pekingese, and Mathew the French bulldog were selected as contenders for Best in Show after Saturday’s competitions.
Three additional contenders will be chosen on Sunday night — when they will compete for Best in Show.
The 145th Westminster dog show launched on Friday, June 11, and will conclude Sunday, June 13.
The Best in Show is the highest award given at dog shows.
The sought-after trophy will be awarded under a tent outside the Lyndhurst mansion in Tarrytown, not in the sports palace of MSG.
The show also is due to feature four breeds that are eligible to compete for the first time — the barbet, the dogo Argentino, the Belgian Laekenois, and the Biewer terrier.
