My mom is at Westminster this year again because Bumper was competing in this, the biggest dog show in the U.S. I think Bumper is the third one of my parent’s dogs that has gone to Westminster. Oddly, the man judging the Newfoundlands picked one of his own dogs (a dog he had bred) as Best in Breed. It’s astonishing that there isn’t a rule about something like that, but boy are there a LOT of politics in the dog world.
In 1999, Annie (who is now 9 years old) won an Award of Merit at Westminster, which was a big big deal.
Here’s a picture of Bumper and a link to the BlueHeavenNewfoundlands website.
