For the first time on the occasion of the Westminster Kennel Club’s 138th Annual Dog Show, 2014, the club held agility trials which have become very popular in dog shows around the nation. They also allowed mixed breed dogs to compete in these agility trials.
The winner of this inaugeral event was a border collie named Kelso.
These dogs are amazing to watch, see the video, as they clear hurdles, run through tunnels and thread their way through bendy poles.
All the dogs who appeared at Madison Square Garden on the final 2 days of the show, after the agility trials were completed are not however judged on what they can do, they are not judeged on how cute and pretty they look, they are judged solely on how well they conform to the standards set for their breed.
And Sky, a classy lady and a wire hair fox terrier won Best In Show on the finals night of judging.
Sky was presented for showing beautifully coiffed and with her coat combed out over her legs like pantaloons. She looked very fine but not pretty, stylish but not cute. Go Sky, go Kelso you are both great dogs as are all the competitors.
