Instead of watching the State of Union Address…

… I watched three hours of the Westminster Kennel Club dog show. Why? Because a Bichon made it to the finals and I love my Shamus.

I really, really do. I love him so much that I would love to have a gaggle of Bichons. (I don’t know if a group of Bichons is called a gaggle, but I am going with it for right now.)

One of the announcers said something I find to be inherently true right before Best of Breed was announced:

The best breed is the one you already have sitting next to you on the couch.

You are so very right, sir!

Congratulations to the Reserve Winner, theĀ Old English Sheepdog, and Best in Show Winner, theĀ Affenpinscher!
