Das Woof!

The Westminster Dog Show was great this year. Dogs ranging from powerful to cute, to silly looking (some of the toy breeds seem to be bred to become dust mops). What other sporting events is it OK to say "That bitch is beautiful"?

It came down to the last seven, but two dogs were above the rest. There was Coco, a cute little furball of a Norfolk terrier. She's a veteran of this stuff, and strutted around Madison Square Garden like she owned the place. She just had three puppies, and now she's a successful working mom. Very New York.

However, Best in Show went to a German shorthaired Pointer named Carlee. This breed's job is to freeze when they see their prey and point at it, just like Scooby-Doo used to. Except Carlee didn't have a stoned, lanky teenager leading her, she had the handler whose dog won last year's Best in Show title. With that much success, I'm surprised she isn't on the USC football coaching staff.

Now that all the awards have been handed out, only one tradition remains. We'll have to see what kind of damage Triumph the Insult Comic Dog did this time. Oh yes, bitch!
