Dog Show Losers
None of these breeds have won the Best in Show Award at the Westminster Dog Show. Perhaps this will motivate them to get off their duff and win next year.
If my goal was to come up with questions challenging to dog experts, I failed miserably. Three specialists ran the category, as did four others.
The big questions is, why didn't Woof use this as his specialty?
1. This breed was launched in the U.S. in 1933 with the gift of dogs from the Dalai Lama to an American traveler.

2. This breed, featured in a popular movie, has a genetic predisposition to deafness.
i thought the bit about dalmatians being deaf was better known. A few seemed to focus too much on the movie tOM and went for the wrong breed.
