‘Best in Show’ Lives On

The people may have changed, but the characters from Christopher Guest’s classic film remain the same at the 2009 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.


When I was asked to cover the 133rd Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, held this past February, and get the real story, I was a bit apprehensive.

Would that mean going undercover? Having to squeeze into my dog suit again and pretend I was a Dachshund with a thyroid problem? I tried that at the last dog show I went to, and people are still laughing about it. Don’t ask, I can’t really explain it. Hey, I can’t even explain why I own a dog suit!

However, when I was told I could go in my civies, then compare and contrast a few of Westminster’s dogs and their people with the characters in the classic dog-show spoof “Best in Show,” I calmed down.
