Release the hounds! The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will take place once again on February 13 at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It has become a big event for dog lovers throughout the country. The prestigious all-breed show has been held every year in New York City since 1877. Imagine that! It’s the second continuously held sporting event in the United States behind the Kentucky Derby which began in 1875. Almost 3000 canines will take the stage over two days to be perused and judged. You can bet there will be a lot of primping going on. Every dog has their day and for one lucky canine that will come on February 14.
