Doggie Shows to Watch on TV

Hey in case you didn't realize, the big Westminster Kennel Club show is going on Monday and Tuesday the 9th and 10th and will be televised in the evening.
I'll never forget the time I went 3 years ago --- got all gussied up, went to NYC and they put a fancy leash on me. Although I didn't win anything, I got to meet the public behind the scenes. Here's a pic of me kissing one of my adoring fans in 2006!

BROADCAST COVERAGE (TV SCHEDULE)

NIGHT 1:
Monday, February 9
Hound, Terrier, Non-Sporting and Herding Groups
8-9 p.m. (ET) live on USA Network
9-11 p.m. (ET) live on CNBC

NIGHT 2:
Tuesday, February 10
Sporting, Working and Toy Groups, Best In Show
8-11 p.m. (ET) live on USA Network


I of course won't be there but there will be plenty of doggies out there ready to kiss and hug the public behind the scenes like I did! Tonight we watched the AKC Eukanuba classic on TV which was held in California in December, and they had a beautiful liver girl Bedlington just like me in the Terrier Group judging.

What I'm really looking forward to is watching the AKC Agility Invitational, which was held in December in California also, on Saturday night on Animal Planet! My pal and fellow Bedlington, Scout might be on -- she went 6th place in her division.

IMark your calendars: February 7, 8PM ET and February 14, 4PM ET on Animal Planet! I'm popping popcorn and we'll all be watching those dogs run!


Love,

Rudy

Hi there Rudy!

Good to meet you, as you're my very first Bedlington terrier - hope we can be friends.

Would be delighted to have you join in my meme True Colurs Thursday next week.
Just leave me a comment when you have your post up.

Oh Wow! I never knew I know a doggie who went to Westminster! You are FAMOUS. We already have the TV reserved in the living room (as opposed to the Bedroom, which is where we usually watch) and muzzer is busily biting the tough parts off of popcorn and saving the puffy pieces so we don't get upset tummies.
