It’s not Madison Square Garden yet, but at least the Westminster Kennel Club dog show is back in New York City.
A champion dog, just a seven-minute train ride from Midtown, broke into the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, Queens this weekend. According to the organizer, it is his second-oldest continuously held sporting event in the United States. The very good dogs (they are all very good dogs) will compete in the Agility and Obedience Championships over the weekend before moving on to two days of judging to determine the best in each breed and group and Of course, we decide what’s best on the show. Tuesday night at Arthur Ashe Stadium.
The show, once a garden staple, has been completely thrown off course by the coronavirus pandemic, like others around the world. It was held at Lyndhurst, a town mansion. The show will take place in 2021, with Bloodhound Trumpet taking the top spot in 2022.
Fans should be more popular this year, with the show coming a little closer to people’s expectations.
