Westiminister Hav on the View today

Anyone see that? Is his name Coby? They were talking about the show, and Barbara had them put up the Hav's pic, to talk about the coat. And how different they all can look. Pointing out his coat and how it was long, down to the feet, etc. Then showed the same pic she's been showing of Cha Cha the last 5 yrs, showing how she looked nothing like that dog.

On a different note, I love the Beagle, and so glad he won. Although I found it strange that the papers and such had predicted him to win prior to. When it came to the end, seemed kind of anticlimatic for me. Because I felt I already knew the results. How can everyone predetermine this, when there are several different judges? Do they tend to follow along with the crowd favorite?

coming back to edit that I CAN spell Westminster, I just had a brain lapse

Good Question !
I was beginning to get that feeling as well .. I could not watch until the end this year there just seemed to be some many more dogs ..
The good news is that this year we actually got to see the Havanese up close and not the long view only as he went by .. and they seemed to know a little more about them ..

Ditto! As soon as I read/heard the "predictions" of the beagle never had won in Westminster, I knew who was going to win. It was so obvious...sigh. I liked the other six dogs much more.

Well my understanding is that owners of the dogs, pay for ads in the dog newspapers - it is very political!! The beagle is a cute dog!!
Coby is a beautiful Hav, expecially in person. I can not imagine having to choose as I felt that every Hav in the breed group was just gorgeous, they all walked, skipped perfect, their coats were perfect, regardless of the fact that they were all different.

As a first time, in person spectator, I have to say that I am so impressed at how these owners and handlers care for these beautiful dogs, and they ALL deserve some award!! What an experience!
