In Honor of Today's Westminster Dog Show..some Dog Art!

To celebrate the 2008 Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show here in NYC.. Wow..you can't believe how many crazy dog people are in NYC today.. Yikes..  Here's A few great dog art photos.

FYI.. MAO's money was on Dreamer, the Chow Chow ! , But it looks like Uno, the 2 year old Beagle, who was the first in 69 years to win the Hound Category, is now the favorite to take it all!

Oh..and by the way..in case you were wondering.. there are some really obsessive, crazy, enthusiastic, impressive Dog Art blogs out there..

OMG you just did not snub William Wegman did you? Blasphemy!

Great post Mike! Only a half hour till the final night of the show!! I'm pulling for the Beagle although the Chow was a beaut! Very Martha Stewart. I proudly admit to being a crazy dog person even though I only have two cats!
