(Gianni Cipriano for The New York Times)
this was the first time in years that i didn't watch the westminster kennel club dog show (and somehow i only remembered to record the first night). it has in the past been our family equivalent of the super bowl, but it just sort of slipped by this year. i'll always enjoy admiring purebred showdogs (and some of my favorite dogs are and have been all fancy and deliberately bred), but any dogs in my future will be shelter hounds. anyway, having said that, look at this spanielly guy who won! he looks like he could be minnow's distant cousin. plus, he's the oldest dog ever to win at westminster. plus, his name is stump.
