Every year, dog breed enthusiasts look forward to the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, an event that is considered by many to be one of the world's most prestigious dog shows. When it comes to purebred dogs, the WKC dog show is for the best of the best. Entry into the show is limited to dogs that are registered by the AKC and have obtained AKC Championship. For two days every February, we get to see ideal representations of each dog breed. In some ways, it's kind of like the Miss America pageant for dogs.
The 2013 Westminster Dog Show is officially underway. Today and tomorrow, hundreds of beautiful purebred dogs and their handlers will compete for the top spot: Best in Show. If you would like to watch the show on television, tune into CNBC tonight from 8pm-11pm and tomorrow night on USA Network from 8pm-11pm. You can also watch the WKC live streaming coverage if you can't wait until 8pm. Enjoy the show!
