  • Westminster 2007 Entry info is in!

    Here is entry info on Westminster entries... We are in with our Pointer
    Ch Southern's XOXOXO's (Hugs N Kisses AKA Isaac)

    Look for us...



    California (283 entries), New York (253) once again lead the way; Rhodesian
    Ridgebacks (50) and Cavaliers (43) top breed entries

    NEW YORK - There's only one Westminster, and the annual entry process for the
    Westminster Kennel Club's Annual All Breed Dog Show has once again shown why.

    Westminster's total entry of 2,632 for its 131st annual event February 12-13 at
    Madison Square Garden in New York City once again filled quickly. That entry
    comes from 48 different states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and five
    foreign countries (It should be noted that because of certain requirements in
    the entry process, many foreign bred dogs are entered from U.S. addresses, and
    in the final compilation there will be a number of additional foreign countries

    Leading the way with the most entries are California (283) and New York (253).
    The top seven states in entries are the same as last year, with Pennsylvania
    (198), New Jersey (179), Florida (135), Texas (132), Connecticut (120),
    Massachusetts (102), Virginia (84) and Ohio (78) rounding out the top ten.

    As in recent years, the entry limit of 2,500 dogs was reached quickly after the
    general entry process began on December 8. The final total entry of 2,632
    includes 132 dogs entered in Junior Showmanship.

    Rhodesian Ridgebacks have the highest entry with 50, while Cavalier King Charles
    Spaniels have 43 entries. Havanese, French Bulldogs and Labrador Retrievers each
    have 38 entries, Golden Retrievers and Chinese Cresteds 37. There are 81 total
    Dachshunds entered in the three Varieties, which compete separately.

    All 165 breeds and varieties recognized by the American Kennel Club will be
    represented at the show, to be held at Madison Square Garden. There are no new
    breeds recognized by the American Kennel Club for competition in 2007. There are
    also 132 entries in Junior Showmanship, where young handlers age 9-18 compete
    based only on their handling abilities.

    Dr. Robert Indeglia of Providence, RI will judge Best In Show, heading a judging
    panel of 34 judges from 14 states, Canada and England.

    The breed judging schedule will be posted on when
    finalized. Breeds and Varieties in the Working, Terrier, Toy, and Non-Sporting
    Groups will be benched and judged during the day on Monday, with Group
    competition that evening. On Tuesday, breeds and varieties in the Sporting,
    Hound and Herding Groups will be benched and judged, with judging of those
    Groups and Best In Show to be held Tuesday evening.

    The evening competition will be televised live each night at 8 PM (ET) on USA
    Network. Westminster, televised since 1948, is and always has been America's
    most widely-watched live telecast of a dog show.

    The Westminster Kennel Club is America's oldest organization dedicated to the
    sport of purebred dogs. Established in 1877, Westminster's influence has been
    felt for more than a century through its famous all breed, benched dog show held
    every year at New York's Madison Square Garden. The show is America's second
    longest continuously held sporting event, behind only the Kentucky Derby.
    Westminster will stage its 130th consecutive show on February 12-13, 2007,
    nationally televised on USA Network. For additional information, log on to

    Hey, sorry so late, but just saw this post. A friend of mine is going with her Pointer, so I'm trying to get down there to see her. If so, I'll have to cheer for you too! I don't know her boy's paper name, but his call name is Parker. He's orange and white (I think, if that's the right name for it). Anyway, hope you do well!! Possible I'll see you down there. Good luck either way.

        The Number 2 (at least LAST year) Mastiff actually goes to the veterinary hospital I used to work at. He's a sweet boy--unlike others the same owner has; her one female really IS a b---h in every sense of the word.

          I know how big of a show this is but it's ssssssssssoooooo hard on the dogs. Hope you get a good grooming area back there in the Zoo!
