Westminster Dog Show Photos: Best in Show as well as More

For some dogs entered inside the Westminster Kennel Club’s annual showcase in Manhattan This kind of week, the show is usually already over. Hundreds of entrants in dozens of breeds got the once-over as well as a sudden goodbye in judging on Monday. As always, a few crowd favorites survived the cut. (They won’t win. They rarely do.) For those in which remain, Tuesday will be a long day of grooming, snoozing as well as trying to stay on their best behavior before the Best in Show winner is usually announced tonight at Madison Square Garden.
