Watching Westminster Dog Show with Gramma. Samoyed was very nice, but hurray for Terriers! Gramma really liked the Airedale and I liked the Welshie.

Unfortunately, Striker didn't win the overall Best in Show and a Bloodhound named Trumpet took the top prize.

Although we'd love to see him compete again, after last night's success, Striker will be hanging up his show collar and will live out his days as a regular member of his family.
