The Show of the Year: Results
Hi friends! Did you catch all of the events this week on 140th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show? Though my terrier group didn’t win, we wanted to share the fun with you!
CJ is pretty darn handsome…He won Best in Show! “He’s a beautiful example of a German shorthaired pointer, obviously,” Westminster Kennel Club spokesman Gail Miller Bisher said on “Good Morning America” today. “He has a stoicism about him. He’s calm, he’s alert, he’s a very show-dog.”
ABC News profiled CJ with some fun facts…
Nickname: The Prince
Post-win treat: Chicken and carrots are his favorites (what’s the deal with these produce loving dogs?! I personally hate carrots…
Famous Family: C.J.’s grandmother is Carlee, who was the 2005 Westminster “Best in Show.” C.J.’s owner and handler, Valerie Nunes-Atkinson, also owned Carlee.
Winning Streak: In six months, this handsome devil has already won 18 “Best in Show” titles
No daily training: C.J.’s owner says he knows what to do and doesn’t train. His handler will reinforce things he was taught when he was younger, but she doesn’t necessarily teach him new things. He runs for conditioning many times throughout the day (yeah, forget that…).
At Home: CJ is a regular ol’ house dog like the rest of us. He lives with 6 other dogs and a kitty!
Favorite activity: Fetch! I like retrieving the ball, but I personally never bring it back…
The 2016 All American Dog winner was Hailey, a 10-year-old Boston terrier/beagle mix. Hailey’s final was 42.1 seconds. Another win for the terriers!
Hope you enjoyed the show! See ya’ next time.
